Cop Cites Toddler For Trying To Pee

Cop Cites Toddler For Trying To Pee

Boys will be boys, and cops will be cops.

A 3-year-old in Piedmont, Okla., earned his mom a $2,500 fine for unzipping his pants and attempting to urinate in his own front yard. Before the reportedly still potty-training tyke got down to business, a police officer stopped him and informed his mother that the child’s impromptu bathroom break would cost her.

“Dillan pulled down his pants to pee outside, I guess and the cop pulled up and asked for my license and told me he was going to give me a ticket for public urination,” the boy’s mother, Ashley Warden told Oklahoma’s News9.

“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,” the boy’s grandmother Jennifer Warden added.

The Wardens reportedly filed a complaint with the department that was rejected by the law enforcement agency. The family claims that they live on two acres near a public street, but are actually located in a quite rural area. They allege that the citation-writing officer parks on their street daily.

“I am disappointed that the officer thinks this is what he needs to do with my tax dollars is sitting and harassing our family,” Jennifer Warden said.
