That's the Way the Cookie Crumbles: Father Ticketed for Selling Girl Scout Cookies

Police in New York ticketed a father who set up a table of Girl Scout cookies on a Brooklyn sidewalk.  The officer claimed the man lacked the proper license to sell the cookies.  The suspect's 13 year-old daughter defended her father saying he was only trying to help her organize and deliver pre-ordered cookies in the neighborhood.  Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne remains adamant that, “No Girl Scouts were seen by officers at the time the summons was issued.”  The Girl Scout, Grace Marie Louis, who sold 600 boxes of cookies and is helping to send her troop to Hawaii or Europe with her cookie earnings, was preparing the orders while her father set up the table.  A judge will determine the father's fine. The Full Story... There are no reports as to whether the ticketing officer's daughter is in a rival troop. [Mark Godsey]
