Toddler Gets Ticketed While Driving Toy Car


Za’Dariyah Mishaw was cruising in her white convertible with the top down enjoying the Florida sun, when blue police sirens flashed and she had no choice but to quickly pull over in the parking lot of her condo building.

The policemen stepped out of their cruiser and patrol officer Christian Velasco issued Mishaw a ticket, later telling First Coast News about the incident: “She was going pretty fast. It took me a while to catch up to her, but we did, and she was cited.”

Her uncle’s take on the criminal incident? “It was a fun moment, brightened up the whole day.”

You see, Mishaw is just two years old and she was cruising the parking lot in her brand-new toy car. Getting pulled over by the cops just added to the fun.

“Everyone always has bad things to say about the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office,” her uncle Keyth Mishaw told First Coast News. “Well, I want to say BIG PROPS to these officers for making a memorable moment for my family.”

Now, Mishaw just needs to raise the cash to pay her $4 ticket.
