Remember Dillan Warden, the Oklahoma 3-year-old who earned his mother a $2,500 fine after he unzipped and prepared (or pee-pared) to whiz in the family's front yard? Ken Qualls, the officer who wrote that ridiculous ticket, has been fired by the city. Qualls, an 18-year police veteran, was widely criticized for his four-figure overreaction to the situation. ("We did receive a lot of notoriety over that," city manager Jim Crosby said.) The fine for Warden's mother has been dropped and the ticket was amended to contributing to the delinquency of a minor. That still seems harsh, but it's much, much cheaper. [Source]
