PIEDMONT — A police officer who wrote a $2,500 ticket to a mother on a public urination complaint against her 3-year-old son has been fired, City Manager Jim Crosby said.
Officer Ken Qualls was fired Friday, Crosby said.
Prosecutors at the Canadian County district attorney's office declined to pursue the case against the mother, Crosby said.
Police Chief Alex Oblein said the ticket was written to the mother for public urination, and the complaint was amended to contributing to the delinquency of a minor, Oblein said.
