Dad pranks daughter with help of Pembroke Pines police

Dad uses lost wallet as bait to prank daughter


PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. – A Pembroke Pines father took "dad jokes" to the next level Monday when he got Pembroke Pines police in on a prank. 

It all started when the father got a call from police that his daughter’s missing wallet was found in the middle of University Drive and that an officer was going to drop the wallet off at the house. 

While waiting for police the father set up a camera in his truck and placed a microphone on himself.

When Officer Michele Fanelli arrived with the wallet, he went inside the house to get his teenage daughter.

"Is there something you need to tell me?" he says to his daughter in the video.

"No," she answers.

"This officer wants to speak to you," the father says. 

The pair then walk to the patrol vehicle, where the father tells his daughter that the officer wants to know what happened prom night.

"Is there something we need to discuss?" the father says.

"No," the daughter says “I’m so serious.”

Not willing to back down, the father then asks questions about the after-party and if anything happened.

"Nothing happened, I swear," the teen says.

"Are you sure? You’re breathing pretty heavy," Fanelli says.

"My feet are burning right now," the teen says. "I need shoes."

Fanelli then tells the teen it seems like she’s hiding something, before asking the father if he believes his daughter.

"I guess," he says.

The pair then begins laughing, and the teen is shown the wallet.

A lot of laughing then ensues.

The group laughs for a bit outside, and Fanelli tells the teen she’s looked her up online and saw she was a star athlete at her high school.

The father then asks for a selfie to remember the moment he pulled off the ultimate dad prank.
