Busted: GA Girl Scout Stand Shut Down for Not Having Permit

"He was scaring us..."

A Girl Scout troop in Villa Rica, GA learned the hard way that government regulation is present everywhere. The troop was selling cookies at a local strip mall when a police officer approached the girls and their parents asking for a permit. When they could not provide one, the officer shut down the stand:

The girls told the local Fox affiliate they were scared their parents were going to be arrested. The story does have a happy ending, however. The local police department -- which says the permit requirement is there for safety -- is offering to throw the girls a pizza party.

The troop also resumed selling their cookies at the mall -- after getting the proper permit.
