Balloon Boy charges update (as of October 24): According to the latest reports, Mayumi Heene, mother of FalconHeene, the six-year-old balloon boy had admitted that the whole balloon saga was a hoax. Mayumi had told sheriff's deputies that she and her husband Richard Heene knew all along that their son was just hiding in the residence while the search and rescue was undergoing.

Well, they would definitely land in jail for causing so much trouble.

Balloon boy charges. - After all the commotion, it turned out that the "balloon boy" incident was a hoax and Richard Heene, father of the balloon boy may end up charged with felony.

The rumors of the whole incident being a hoax surfaced after Falcon told CNN Thursday night "we did it for the show."

Larimer County Sheriff Jim Alderden said that Richard Heene and Mayumi Heene who met in acting school in Hollywood and have appeared on the ABC reality show "Wife Swap" have reportedly been working on a reality TV deal in Los Angeles. The sheriff added that investigators are examining the possibility of other conspirators, including the possibility that even some of the media outlets may have had some knowledge about this.

Well, this would be a hard time for the older Heenes. I think they didn't thought that the "show" would end up like this. They screwed because they let their kids into it. You know children will always be children. They would most of the time tell the truth when they are caught.

I think charges are appropriate. Say, the stunt temporarily shut down Denver International Airport and caused the National Guard to scramble two helicopters in an attempt to rescue the boy, who was believed to be inside the flying-saucer shaped homemade balloon that hurtled more than 50 miles across two counties. Imagine how much it did cost the government.
