Toddler Ticketed For Urinating In His Yard
A police officer in Oklahoma was apparently bored or just a raging a-hole…most likely both. I think it’s highly disheartening when you call the police to report a crime or incident and they act as if you are wasting their time and literally offer no hope of resolving your issue or perhaps catching and arresting someone who has committed a crime against you. I know policemen everywhere are overworked, I get that, but let’s get our priorities in check shall we? I guess we should be thankful there are officers out there willing to put it all on the line to catch toddlers pissing in their own yard…you know…bloodthirsty criminal s**t.
A mother in Oklahoma is facing a $2,500 ticket after her 3-year-old son urinated in their front yard.
Ashley Warden received the staggering fine after a police officer in Piedmont spotted her son Dillon, who is being potty trained, dropping his pants outside their house Sunday afternoon, The Daily Mail reported.
“The policeman pulled up and asked for ID,” Dillon’s grandmother, Jennifer Warden, told The Oklahoman. “We didn’t know why and he said it was for public urination. We were like, ‘He’s 3 years old.’ And he said it didn’t matter.”
Dillon’s mother was so enraged she ripped up the ticket and plans to contest it.
Piedmont Police Chief Alex Oblein conceded to The Daily Mail that his officer could have handled the incident better by turning it into a teachable moment.
He said it’s likely the charge will be dropped.
