Okla. Parents Fined $2,500 Because of Toddler!
An Oklahoma toddler who was potty training thought he was doing the right thing in the front yard. But Dillan's well-intentioned act may cost his mom thousands of dollars, after it earned her an expensive public urination ticket from a passing Piedmont police officer.
Despite the objections of Dillan's mother, Ashley Warden, and grandmother Jennifer Warden, who actually owns the house, the officer wrote the family a $2,500 ticket! News 9 reports.
"I said really, he is three years old, and he said it doesn't matter. It is public urination. I said we are on our property and he said it's in public view," Jennifer Warden told the station.
The family plans on fighting the ticket, since the police officer stopped the boy before he finished. A court appearance is set for December. "For $2,500 we all should be able to pee all over our whole yard," Warden said.
In September, a Philadelphia mom was similarly outraged when her 2-year-old son Nathaniel peed on a traffic light poleand was given a $50 ticket.
