Sheriff’s deputies in Nebraska issued criminal mischief citations to nine kids last week after they ran and jumped into fences in neighborhoods.
This new trend is apparently inspired by the Kool-Aid Man. Kids are watching old Kool-Aid commercials and they are trying to replicate them. In the commercials, the Kool-Aid Man bursts through a wall and brings the sweet, refreshing drink to thirsty children.
Sheriff’s Sgt. Blake Raughton said one neighbor’s surveillance video shows three vehicles stop in a street and about nine teens get out. They talk and laugh for a bit, then most run into the fences, return to the vehicles and leave. The juveniles were issued citations. [Omaha News]
Parents talk to your kids and tell them this new trend doesn't need to happen.
