A Pennsylvania mom got a ticket – and a lecture – after her toddler urinated on the sidewalk.
Caroline Robboy was out shopping in Philadelphia with her elderly-in-laws and three kids when her recently potty-trained two-year-old son, Nathaniel, said he needed to go to the bathroom. Robboy asked a store employee to use a restroom but was told they were not open to the public.
The family left the store to find a bathroom – but apparently little Nathaniel couldn’t hold it anymore. He took matters into his own hands … and relieved himself on a lamppost.
A police officer saw the crime go down − and came over and gave Robboy a $50 ticket … and some free advice.
“He said, ‘I’m doing this for your own protection because God forbid there might have been a pervert out there looking at my son,’” Robboy said.
She plans to fight the citation. (WNYT.com)
A Pennsylvania man’s hope for a clean getaway was flushed away when he was arrested for a shoplifting scam that involved stealing a toilet.
32-year-old Bobby Clifford Smith III is facing theft charges for allegedly trying to exchange a toilet he didn’t buy for gift cards at a Lowe’s home improvement store.
Smith was caught on store surveillance video entering the store, grabbing a toilet from a shelf, and then taking that very same toilet to the return line to exchange it for more than $600 in gift cards.
His potty plan went down the drain when police were called and he was taken to jail – where he is being held on bail. (Huffington Post)
