PORT ST. LUCIE, Florida — There is such a thing as being too cool of a dad.
A 53-year-old Florida father was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor when he drove his young son and his girlfriend to a park so they could have sex, or as dad put it: “do their thang.”
Cops initially spotted Laurence Mitchell sitting in his idling car outside a Port St. Lucie park after hours. When they asked what he was doing there, Mitchell said he had driven the young couple there to “do what kids do.”
When asked why he would do that, Mitchell said: “Well, they aren’t out there stealing. They are just having sex.”
“They could be out there doing worse,” Mitchell said, according to the police report.
Cops then spotted the young couple and when questioned, they admitted they had been in the park, “just smoking and f—ing.”
Police say Mitchell acknowledged that he had not gotten permission from the girl’s family to take her to the park for sex.
