Toddler ticketed by police
Jacksonville, Fla. (WKRC) -- A toddler got her first taste of the law one Sunday afternoon while joyriding in her condominium complex's parking lot.
Za'Dariyah Mishaw was driving a toy convertible when Jacksonville police issued her a $4 ticket.
Officers were in the area for a criminal investigation, saw the girl and her family and tried to lighten the situation.
"Everyone always has bad things to say about the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, well, I want to say big props to these officers for making a memorable moment for my family," says Za'Dariyah's uncle, Keyth Mishaw. "It was a fun moment, brightened up the whole day."
This was Za'Dariyah's first time in her new car. Now, she keeps telling her mom that she wants to pay for her ticket.
Patrol officer Christian Velasco says "She was going pretty fast. It took me a while to catch up to her, but we did, and she was cited." Velasco said when he is out on calls, he tries to interact with members of the community as much as possible.
