A three year old boy “Dillan Warden” was urinating in his own front yard , so his mum was fined $2,500.
A police officer saw Dillan Warden take down his pants and issued the ticket, for a sum of $2,500
Ashley Warden, Dillan’s mother, said he was being potty trained but answered the call of nature outside as he wasn’t near a toilet.
Mrs Warden, of Piedmont, Oklahoma, said: “Dillan pulled down his pants to pee outside. And the cop pulled up and asked for my license and told me he was going to give me a ticket for public urination.”
Grandmother Jennifer Warden added: “I said: ‘Really? He is three years old’, and he said: ‘It doesn’t matter. It is public urination.’
The grandmother said: ‘We are on our property’, and he said: ‘It’s in public view’.”
Family lives on two-and-a-half acres of land, have complained that the officer who issued the ticket parks at the end of their street daily.
They hope a judge will throw out the case when it comes before a court next month.
