A family of 10 celebrating a Sweet 16 in Stoney Creek, Ont. had five police officers crash their “party” — I say “party” because if it’s just your family, is it really a party?
Kendra Bond and Cassandra Martin-Tansley are two of the six adults who were each given $815 fines on March 7, for the crime of singing Happy Birthday, or so it would seem.
Kendra claims she had only her immediate family at her house, when her mother stopped by to drop off a gift and came inside to use the restroom. While inside for approximately five minutes, the Bond family took the opportunity to sing Happy Birthday to their 16-year-old, when five officers showed up out of the blue.
Apparently this family’s neighbours are a bunch of grinches, because they called the police on the Bond family, alleging that there were more than 25 people inside the Bond home. Well, lie or not, the police quickly pivoted from fighting actual crime to come rain on this young woman’s parade.
