We live in such a snitch culture these days what with “See Something Say Something” that it seems that some people just can’t wait to call the cops on someone for something.

But how about calling the police on someone for putting his own kid in his own car?

That’s exactly what happened to a Tesla Model S owner who lives in California.

You see, the Model S has a pair of rear-facing seats in the back hatch. When a bystander saw the man put his kid in there, he or she panicked and dialed 9-1-1 thinking the child was being kidnapped.

The parent was hunted down and held at gunpoint by the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Office before they realized the whole thing was just a misunderstanding.

“We’re not Tesla experts,” Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Office Lt. Rob Hahnlein told The Signal. “It was not a kidnapping. The new Teslas have a weird back seat and when they put the (child) in the back seat it looked like they were putting them in the trunk.” (source)

Oops. Guess the guy is lucky he wasn’t shot.
