A 16-year-old girl in South Euclid apparently took some drastic measures after getting in trouble with her father.
According to the city's police department, the teen called 911 Saturday afternoon to report a theft, and officers were dispatched to her Plainfield Road home. Upon arrival, however, it was discovered that the "theft" actually involved her cell phone, which her dad had taken away for disciplinary reasons.
The girl told authorities the phone was hers and she was "entitled" to it, but officers had to explain to her that "having a cell phone under under the age of 18 is a 'privilege' and not a 'right'."
The officers suggested she follow her father's rules if she wanted to get the phone back. Whether or not she agreed has not been confirmed.
