That’s not the ticket: Toddler’s littering citation dropped

WASHINGTON (AP) — City officials in Washington are tearing up a littering citation issued to a toddler.

The Washington Post reports (http://wapo.st/2cdBTdD ) 2-year-old Harper Westover received a “Notice of Violation” Thursday from the Department of Public Works, with a $75 fine.

Her mom, attorney Theresa Westover, also received a citation. She called a solid waste inspector who told her a city worker had found unopened envelopes with her name and Harper’s name in an alley.

 Westover says the inspector refused to rescind Harper’s ticket, even amid assurances that they’re not a family of litterbugs. The case drew ridicule after Westover’s husband, Chuck, posted about it online.
