It was later determined that the ticket was not real and a conspiracy between the police and the boy's father.
According to Good Morning America, the child is taking the betrayal in stride. "Lisa Tramley, the ticketed toddler's mom, told CTV that her young bad boy has been a good sport about his ticket. 'He loves his ticket,' she said. 'He tried to go bed with his ticket.'" That's what happens when you have no one else to trust.
Our in-house toddler correspondent weighed in. "If I were him I'd cease all potty training efforts immediately and only eat bread for weeks."
No word on if the child will start counseling or if Grandma will seek temporary custody.
