"I think I left it on the sidewalk," said 7-year-old Autumn.
Autumn's father went outside and noticed the Jeep was parked behind his car with a police notice for an abandoned vehicle. The citation was for the Jeep, made out to the owner, Barbie.
The police department says there are usually harsher punishments for the real cars left on the curb.
"If it was blocking someone's driveway, normally we would tow it away," said one officer.
"Unfortunately, I have received my share of tickets," said Autumn's father.
"So this is your favorite?" asked the reporter.
"This is definitely my favorite ticket that I have received," he said.
Autumn says she learned her lesson and will be keeping her Jeep where it belongs, from now on.
