CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. (AP) - Some parents in a New York City suburb are upset because a local politician called police on two 13-year-old boys for selling cupcakes and other baked goods without a permit.

The Journal News in Westchester County reported Monday that New Castle Councilman Michael Wolfensohn had called police last month. The newspaper says it requested the police report after receiving a complaint from a friend of one of the boys' families.

Andrew DeMarchis and Kevin Graff had a brisk business selling cupcakes, cookies, brownies and Rice Krispie treats in a Chappaqua (CHAP'-uh-kwah) park.

Kevin's mother, Laura Graff, says the teens are "good kids" who were scared by the police call.

Wolfensohn says rules are rules. But he concedes calling the police might have been a half-baked decision.
