(Scroll down for video) A police officer wrote a $2,500 ticket after a boy, 3 years old, urinated on a front lawn, according to reports.
The boy got his mom in trouble with the law when she received a fine from the police. Now, the boy's mother will have to pay thousands of dollars for what the child did in his own front yard.
“Dillan just peed outside,” his mother said. “He was playing outside and was not near the bathroom, so he just unzipped.”
Before the child could pee, a Piedmont police officer stopped him. The bathroom break cost his mother $2,500.
"Dillan dropped his pants to pee outside. I guess the police stopped him and asked me for my license. He told me I was going to be fined for urinating in public," said the child's mother, Ashley Warden.
"I said, really, he is 3 years old, and he said it doesn’t matter," the grandmother of Dillan, Jennifer Warden said. "He said he is urinating in public. I said we are on our property and he said it is in public view."
The family lives on two acres, and said that the street is fairly rural. The officer parks at the end of their street every day. So they asked why. The Wardens filed a complaint with the police department.
The police department did not accept the complaint of the Wardens. They have a court appearance set for next month.
"I am disappointed that the officer thinks what to do with my tax money and sits and harasses our family," Jennifer Warden said.
Warden said that as a courtesy, the official noted the cost of the ticket: $2,500. Warden plans to fight the ticket because she says her son did not actually complete the act.
