Fired Oklahoma Cop Suing City After Writing A 3-Year-Old A Ticket For Peeing
An Oklahoma cop canned for citing a 3-year-old boy for peeing outside is now suing the city of Piedmont for unfairly flushing his career.
Kenneth Qualls claims he had permission from on high to give little Dillan Warden a $2,500 public urination ticket in November 2012 after the tot unzipped in his pants on Ryan Drive.
The prohibited pee was on private property, the boy’s mother, Ashley Warden, said at the time.
“I said really, he is 3-years-old, and [the officer] said it doesn’t matter – it’s public urination,” the boy’s grandmother, Jennifer Warden, told KWTV News 9 at the time.
But about 10 days after the ill-advised ticket, Qualls was dumped from the department, The Oklahoman reported.
We hate f**kboy cops like this…
During the 2012 pissing match, the officer was even called “stupid” by the city’s mayor, furthering muddying his reputation, the suit claims.
The city denies the claims, except for the fact that a personnel board did vote to fire Qualls, a veteran officer with 18 years of law enforcement experience.
But little Dillan’s grandmother said at the time of the ticket that the officer was just bothering the family and would frequently wait down the rural street in patrol car doing nothing at all.
“I am disappointed that the officer thinks … what he needs to do with my tax dollars is sitting and harassing our family,” she told the TV station.
