Those poor children are probably scarred for life now!
He probably should have stuck to Pin the Tail on the Donkey. A Tremonton man hosting his child’s birthday party over the weekend briefly played a freaky and graphic video for kids in attendance, Police Chief Dave Nance said Monday. The man, whose name was not released, had rented “The Smurfs” DVD from a Redbox kiosk to show at the party, Nance said.
However, after loading the movie into his laptop and switching on the device, graphic images briefly flashed up on a projection screen in view of the young partygoers, Nance said. The man notified police Monday to report someone had tampered with “The Smurfs” DVD. Police inspected the DVD but didn’t find any problem with the disc and assumed the flick was probably on the laptop.
Information regarding how many children were at the party was not available. Police do not intend to investigate further or seek criminal charges because the incident was apparently an accident, Nance said, adding that the man is embarrassed. “He’s got some explaining to do (to children at the party and their parents),” he said.
Man, what would you do in this situation???
