KHQ.COM - A mother gets slapped with a $2,500 fine because her son relieved himself in their own yard.
Ashley Warden's son, Dillan, is in the middle of potty training. According to Warden, he was out playing in the family's front yard in Piedmont, Oklahoma and was too far from the bathroom, so he unzipped his pants in order to finish his business. That's when a police officer pulled up and asked for Ashley's license, telling her he was going to give her a fine for her son's "public urination."
The officer said even though Dillan was on the Warden's own property, it was within public view, making it a fineable offense. Jennifer Warden, Dillan's grandmother, says the police officer sits at the end of their rural, but public, street every day, "because he can." She said, "I am disappointed that the officer thinks... what he needs to do with my tax dollars is sitting and harassing our family."
The Wardens say they will fight the ticket on the grounds Dillan never finished the act, but was stopped by the officer before he began to urinate. Their court appearance is scheduled for next month.
