Ask any mom and they’ll tell you potty training isn’t easy, and sometimes kids just can’t hold it in no matter how hard they try. But apparently letting your kids go just anywhere, even in the case of an emergency, isn’t exactly okay, and one woman found out the hard way.
Georgia momBrooke Johnsreveals on Facebook that she actually received a ticket after her son had a potty training emergency and she let him pee in the parking lot of a gas station. She explains that her three-year-old, Cohen,was about to pee in his pants when she quickly got to a gas station, but not fast enough because as soon as they arrived she realized he wasn’t going to make it inside.
“He was peeing before his pants were even all the way down," she explained, "so obviously he had to go,” and as a last resort she let him pee in the parking lot. Unfortunately, there happened to be a local deputy in that parking lot who saw the whole thing go down and gave her a citation for disorderly conduct which read, “he allowed her male child to urinate in the parking lot. I observed the male’s genitals and the urination. Public restrooms are offered at the location.”
- Brooke now has to go to court on April 30th, which just happens to be a few days before she’s due to give birth.
- Well, as you can imagine folks had some strong opinions about the whole thing, with many blasting the police officer. "This deputy should be looking for drugs, criminals, etc.," wrote one user, "not 'genitals' (as was noted in the citation). Sounds like this isn't the type of deputy that needs to be patrolling the streets of Augusta, especially since there are way bigger issues!."
