EDMOND, Okla. (AP) _ An Edmond man whose son was fined $390 for violating the city's curfew is vowing to fight the ordinance until it's repealed.

Last week, John Teets the Second filed a lawsuit in Oklahoma County District Court asking the court to declare Edmond's curfew law unconstitutional. Teets says the wording of the ordinance is vague and that it violates teens' rights to peaceably assemble.

Teets' son -- John Teets the Third -- was cited in March for violating the curfew ordinance. Besides the fine, he was ordered to attend life skills counseling, a ropes course and anger management classes.

A protest of the city's curfew ordinance outside the city's municipal court building Friday drew only a handful of participants.
