    Toddler’s Public Potty Break Gets $2,500 Ticket, Then an Apology - ABC News

    The incident began last Sunday in the now ironically-named town of Piedmont, Okla., north of Oklahoma City. Jennifer Warden and her daughter, 21-year-old Ashley Warden, were approached by a local police officer who had been perched at the end of their quiet cul-de-sac of homes.

    “He came over and said, ‘Give me your ID,’” Jennifer Warden said of the officer, later identified as Officer Ken Qualls. “I just stood there a minute, and then I asked him why did he need my ID and he said, ‘Public urination.’”

    Qualls was looking in the direction of Ashley Warden’s 3-year-old son, Dillon, who had pulled his pants down at the end of their home’s driveway to relieve himself


    When Ashley Warden, who was unavailable for comment today due to her work schedule, came back outside, Qualls issued her a $2,500 ticket for her son’s public urination.

    “‘It doesn’t matter because it’s public urination and in public view,’” Warden said Qualls responded when the mother and daughter protested that Dillon was just a toddler and that he was on their two-and-a-half acres of private property, where they’ve lived for eight years.

    The boy might be just a toddler, but he should have been taught that he needs to go to the toliet, or potty, if he needs to pee. You can't have people, make or female, young or old, pulling their pants down and pissing in front of the neighbours.

    The cop, however, should have let her off with a warning, and told her to train her son to go visit the bathroom next time.

    The cop is definitely in the wrong here, but a toddler should have never been unsupervised in a situation where he was able to pee at the end if a driveway unhindered. In fact the mother should have been charged for child endangerment.

    Firing that cop seems in order.

    Clearly he doesn't have enough common sense to wear a badge and gun.

    Gosh, seven posts and no one's hit it yet.

    The cop is obviously a Republican.

    My kids when toddlers all peed in many places outside. Better there than in their pants.

    But it's Okieland,you have to have lived there to understand. I lived in OKC for 24 years.
