Blotter: Daughter’s traffic stop causes problems for dad

Police officers called a young woman’s father Sunday morning so he could pick her up after she was stopped for speeding, driving without license, no proof of insurance and an expired registration.

According to the police report, the father was aware that his daughter was driving the car with no license and he was cited for allowing that.

According to the report, the father didn’t take receiving the citation too well, or having his car impounded for no insurance.

While removing personal belongings from the car, the father took one of his tools and smashed the windows of two cars that did not belong to him, according to the report.

The father was arrested and charged with resisting arrest, public intoxication and criminal mischief.
