A 10-year-old girl was allegedly told off by police after drawing a hopscotch grid on the pavement in front of her home.
Lilly Allen was reportedly playing with her chalk-drawn hopscotch grid when two officers approached her and warned that it was 'criminal damage.'
Lilly’s father, Bob Allen, 51, was angered by the cops’ behavior and quickly lodged a complaint with local police.
“I am absolutely seething they have done this,” Bob said.
Local police have responded to Bob’s complaint, explaining that the warning was definitely unwarranted and they are currently attempting to figure out which patrol car was in the area during the time of the incident.
“From the circumstances described, it would not appear to have been necessary to advise the young girl that chalking a hopscotch grid may be criminal damage and illegal,” a Kent police spokesman said.
So far, the police department claims they have not traced any officers to the area.
