Balloon Boy’s Father, Richard Heene, Arrested on Criminal Charges for Hoax

The Larimer County sheriff said he’ll file misdemeanor charges against Richard Heene and his wife, Mayumi, but did not reveal what law they broke. “We were looking at a Class 3 misdemeanor, which hardly seems serious enough given the circumstances,” Sheriff Jim Alderden said Saturday during a cryptic news conference outside his office. The sheriff said last week that if the balloon boy saga turned out to be a hoax, the parents could be charged with making a false report, a low-level misdemeanor that carries a maximum of six months in jail, a 0 fine or both. Cops searched the Heene home Saturday night, but did not say what they were looking for. The sheriff said more details would be available today – and that the Heenes could face federal charges.

    it isn’t so much the fact that they lied, it’s that they lied to the police and made them waste their time running on a wild goose chase. That is a crime.

    Lie is NOT a crime just in the mind of some hypocrites at the most. However, this was an inappropriate act but nothing more!

    This was not a criminal act. No one was hurt. Israeli owned mainstreet media got punked! Are redfaced. It was however an irresponsible act. He and those involved showed how gullible American media is. BUT those involved should pay for the emergency vehicles and helicopters’ gas, time wasted by the police and emergency personell/emergency crews.

    I don’t think charges are appropriate but I do think some serious psych evals are in order for the parents of these poor kids. Court & monitored ordered counseling for the entire family- they should have to either pay back the money for the resources used during the search, either w/ money or community service & ABOVE ALL – STOP GIVING THEM ANY KIND OF MEDIA ATTENTION AT ALL!! It’s what they wanted in the first place. Really ? Shame of you two.

    This Heene nut bag is UNFIT to parent a gerbil. He needs to be arrested, charged, serve jail time and then spend the rest of his life paying back a judgement against him for every penny that he cost the tax payers.
