FORT COLLINS, Colorado - The parents of Balloon Boy are in a world of trouble and are being investigated for possibly fabricating a nationwide hoax.
The pair have been asked to report to the Fort Collins Sheriff's Department for some extensive questioning.
At first they said that they would not be able to report to police headquarters because they were much too busy with their appearances on all of the national morning shows including The Today Show, The Early Show, Good Morning America, and Howdy and Morning To Y'all.
Fort Collins Sheriff Jimbo "Bison Rider" Alfrasetti quickly let the parents know that he wanted them in his office at 8 a.m. sharp the next morning and if they failed to appear at that time, he was going to send his deputies to arrest them and bring them back to Colorado where they would be incarcerated.
Richard, who noticeably is not the smartest stamp in the collection, offered Sheriff Alfrasetti $100 if they could postpone their 'meeting' for a least a week.
Sheriff Afrasetti replied that he was issuing an arrest warrant for him on the grounds of trying to bribe a Colorado peace officer.
The family has made international news on account that they claimed that their boy got into the family's hot air balloon without permission and went for a joy ride over the majestic Rocky Mountains.
As it turns out, little Balloon Boy was actually hiding up in the family garage's attic. His parents told the Fort Collins sheriff's department that they called out for him and he did not answer.
When little BB was interviewed by CNN's Wolf Blitzer, he was asked why he had hid in the garage attic and why he had not answered when his parents called out to him.
BB raised his eyebrows, looked down at his sneakers, and said that he did not answer when his mom and dad called because they had told him to keep quite and that the family would become famous and maybe even get their own reality show like The Kardashians, the Gosselins, and the fatsos on The Biggest Loser.
The state of Colorado Hoax Department will be conducting a full scale investigation into this balloon family matter. A spokesman for the Pikes Peak State has said that if the family is found to have been involved in a hoax, under the State of Colorado Hoax and Prank Statute of 1969, they will be fined from $800 to $8,000, they will have their home confiscated, and they will be forced to move to Utah.
