A Wisconsin community has adopted a new ordinance that will allow police to write tickets to parents of chronic bullies.
The National Bullying Prevention Center tells NBC News the town of Monona, Wisconsin could be the first in the nation to pass this kind of law.
It works this way: Parents are notified in writing if their child is accused of bullying. If the bad behavior happens again within 90 days, parents are slapped with a fine of $114 in municipal court costs.
The ordinance also covers cyberbullying, according to Monona's chief of police.
