D.A. Ready to Throw the Book at Richard Heene

by at . Comments

Balloon Boy's dad is about to get popped by the D.A.

Larimer County, Colo., investigators have presented their case to the District Attorney, meaning charges are imminent against masterminds (a misnomer if here there were one, as they are masterful at nothing) Mayumi and Richard Heene.

The District Attorney "will be making a charging decision as soon as we have had an opportunity to complete a careful review and analysis of this case."

Six-year-old Falcon Heene raised suspicions on CNN October 15 with his "for a show" comment, sparking debate over whether his parents really believed he crawled into a homemade balloon and drifted away. But that was just the beginning.

A search warrant released Friday revealed that Mayumi Heene confessed all.

Meanwhile, the Heenes and their three children are holed up in their Colorado home, where the front porch is dotted with flowers and messages of support.

What kind of idiots want to "support" these buffoons with anything but a kick in the pants, we have no idea, but it's nice that they have kind neighbors.

For the most part, the Heene family has kept a low profile since their ridiculous Balloon Boy hoax played out on national TV and was subsequently exposed.

After taking the family truck out for a short time, Richard Heene returned with his kids and hustled them inside the garage, said he was not talking to the press, and quickly shut the garage door," an eyewitness tells E! News.

"This happened in a span of 15 seconds."

Authorities say they won't be bringing any charges against the three minor Heenes, including Falcon Heene, the one whose disappearance was dramatically staged.

Richard and Mayumi aren't so lucky. They may face counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, attempting to influence a public servant and conspiracy.

We suppose being a liar and bad parent, and representing all that is soulless and wrong with America isn't a formal charge, but we'll settle for the above felonies.
