The Burton-on-Trent, England, council has threatened Julie Brown's son with an anti-social behavior order for annoying neighbors by riding around on a motor scooter. But Brown says that's impossible, given that her son won't even be born for a few more months. "I was angry because nobody came and checked and the letter was sent despite the fact we don't have a son yet, let alone one who causes trouble riding around on a scooter," she said. A council spokesman said the letter appears to be a mistake.
