Avery Sanford revealed that her father committed the petty act shortly after her 18th birthday and that she was left angry and embarrassed by the incident that occurred in the US state of Virginia.

She told WTVR: "When I was in the middle of class, my dad came by. He had rented a trailer.

"He pulled up in front of our house, turned the trailer on so it dumped out all the pennies in the street in front of our house, and my mum walked outside while it was happening.

"And he said, 'It’s your final child support payment.'"

Sanford says the distasteful act has worsened her strained relationship with her father and revealed that she and her mother decided to donate the cash to a local domestic abuse shelter.
