SOUTH EUCLID, Ohio (CIRCA via STORYFUL) — An argument between a 16-year-old and her father in South Euclid, Ohio, had to handled by police. Police say the teen was so unhappy with her father for confiscating her cellphone that she called them to come to their home.
Unfortunately for her, the case didn't go her way. The responding officer explained to the teenager that even though her father hadn’t bought the phone, he still had the right to confiscate it.
“The girl insisted it was a theft and she was entitled to the phone,” wrote the department in a Facebook post regarding the incident. “Officers explained that having a cell phone under the age of 18 is a ‘privilege' and not a ‘right’ as she believes.”
