BUFFALO GROVE, Ill., Jan. 12 (UPI) -- Police in a Chicago suburb say a father whose twin 9-year-old daughters were disrupting his driving pulled into a police station for teachable moment.

The Buffalo Grove Police Department said the man stopped at the station Jan. 5 and asked an officer to help explain the dangers of hitting someone and pulling their hair while they are driving a car, the Pioneer Press reported Tuesday.

The girls told the officer they "shoved" their dad because they wanted him to stop singing.

The officer wrote in a police report that the 9-year-olds "understood" the lesson.

"The complainant was satisfied with the results," the Glenview-area newspaper said.
