12-Year-Old Black Newspaper Delivery Boy Gets Cops Called On Him His First Day On The Job

By Vanessa Nix Anthony

A mom in Ohio is left saddened after someone called police on her 12-year-old son—for delivering newspapers. 

Brandie Sharp was out with her two sons, 17-year-old Mycha and 12-year-old Uriah, who was just starting his first day delivering newspaper circulars to the porches of neighbors on Barrington Road, in Upper Arlington, Ohio. That's when Sharp alleges police stopped them for a chat about what they were doing in the neighborhood. 

She posted about the incident on Facebook:

According to an interview with ABC6/FOX28, Sharp said:

I showed him the thing for the Dispatch, The Bag, the midday week paper, that we get and he said 'Oh, really?' and by that time I was kind of like, 'Okay, why are you questioning me about this?'
