Police officers were in for a big surprise in South Euclid, Ohio, when they arrived at the home of a 16-year-old girl who called 911 to complain that her father took away her cellphone.

 

 

She called police, but didn’t get the answer she was hoping for.

Officers in South Euclid, Ohio say they were dispatched to a home there Saturday for a theft report – only to arrive and find a 16-year-old who claimed her father stole her cell phone, something she believed she was entitled to have.

Her dad, Anthony Robertson, told police that he decided to discipline his daughter after she set a passcode for her device, which was against his rules, and police took his side.

“Officers explained that having a cell phone under the age of 18 is a ‘privilege’ and not a ‘right’ as she believes,” the South Euclid Police Department said in a Facebook post. “Officers suggested she follow the rules her father set, if she hoped to get the phone returned.”
