This is how the mom described the incident in her own words right after it happened.



Mom or parent of boys.......
How many of you have done this...
Drive down the road and your son at a young age. Freshly 3 and freshly potty trained has to pee. You pull over at a gas station but not by the front door off to the side and snatch them out. Don't even have enough time to put shoes on or go inside (who wouldn't rather there child stand on concrete that isn't hot barefoot then a nasty bathroom) on top of being 34 weeks pregnant and in pain already.. Crack the door and hide them and allow them to go pee in a parking lot.
Or just allow your kid to pee in a parking lot in general.
The point of this poll is I just got a disorderly conduct ticket in Richmond county for allowing my son to pee for the reason above!!!! And hide him and got accused by the cop of seeing my sons penis which is entirely impossible!”

Which is pretty much how I assumed this took place to begin with. I certainly did not think the woman just let her son pee out in the open while waving to the gas station patrons for them to see. She had one other option: Pee in the car, as one poster has suggested multiple times. Most rational parents would have done something similar to what she did. I'm sure she wasn't "proud" of what she was doing, and perhaps even a bit embarrassed, but hey, she did what she had to.

I wonder how some of the people here react when they see a parent changing a diaper in the back seat of a car in an open parking lot with the door open. "Oh NO! You can see a baby's butt! And genitals! How disgusting! Use the bathroom!"

Children generally start to develop good bladder control by the age of two. A three year old who is freshly potty trained, as claimed by the mother, is far behind schedule.


From mommy's entitlement attitude, there is a very good chance that she escalated a verbal warning into a citation. I notice that the citation wasn't actually for peeing in a parking lot.

How old are your kids?

“I observed the male’s genitals and the urination.”

Why is no one asking why this pervert is looking at a toddler’s junk? PERVERT!

I'm not at all horrified by the incident and I am not a parent. I think sometimes a mother or father can get caught in an emergency situation where their toddler has to 'go' and there isn't time to get the kid into a restroom. The mother was pregnant; cleaning up the floor of the gas station if the kid couldn't hold it until he actually made it to a toilet might have been physically difficult for her. And I don't blame her for choosing the parking lot instead of the inside of her car.

I have allowed my (leashed) dog to urinate in some parking lots on occasion, not on the pavement but on side areas where there is dirt and trees or bushes.

Dang, now there's a visual! I honestly think if I heard a kid screaming and turned to see a man running off with him and then pulling his pants down behind a tree, I'd be lighting into that guy with everything I had before he'd even have a chance to explain anything.

I can only imagine the aftereffect if someone happens to go by a car and the father inside is trying to get his son to pee in a bottle.

Apologies to everyone's husband and kids here in advance.

A cop with too much free time. Maybe they ran out of donuts.

Definitely unnecessary on the officer's part. This is practically a baby. Good thing the child didn't vomit or else he would have tasered the kid.
