    Piedmont officer is fired over public urination ticket

    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 Tuesday.

    Crosby said he fired officer Ken Qualls on Friday, following a hearing Nov. 14.

    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.

    Qualls issued the ticket Nov. 4 to Ashley Warden after he saw her son, Dillan, drop his pants in the front yard of the family home at 4505 Ryan Drive.

    I know this guy -

    Did you know that Officer Qualls had permission from both his supervisor and the City Attorney before writing the ticket?

    Did you know that the officer was patrolling the area because neighbors had complained about vandalism in the area - and specifically mentioned this family as the suspects in the vandalism?

    There is a lot more to this story than the media is portraying.

    I don't understand firing this policeman over it. It's not like he broke any laws, so why fire him?
    Just my opinion
