Oklahoma toddler ticketed for public urination

An Oklahoma 3-year-old got his mother in trouble when he unzipped and urinated in public.

Dillan is potting training and his mother says he was playing outside, but well away from any facilities, when he had to go.

“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, said.

A Piedmont police officer ticketed the boy, “Situation” – mom $2,500.

“I said really, he is 3 years old, and he said it doesn’t matter,” said Dillan’s grandmother, Jennifer Warden. “[He said] It is public urination. I said we are on our property and he said it’s in public view.”

The family lives on two-and-a-half acres and says the street is actually quite rural; but they say the officer who cited them parks at the end of their street daily. So they asked why.

“It’s a public street and he wants to, so he can,” Jennifer Warden said.

The Wardens filed a complaint with the police department.

The police department didn’t accept the Wardens’ complaint. They have a court appearance set for next month.

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

Warden said as a courtesy, the officer wrote down the cost of the ticket: $2,500.

Warden plans on fighting the ticket since she says her son didn’t actually finish the act.
