Finally. When you’ve got a kid vomiting during a television interview because the situation is so stressful and you don’t remove him and keep doing the interview and schedule more, that’s a sign something need to be looked at.
Larimer County Sheriff Jim Alderden said today that his agency has talked with the county’s child-protection agency about the Fort Collins family who lost control of an experimental balloon Thursday.
The Sheriff’s Office is now planning to re-interview Richard Heene, his wife and children, after a television appearance in which 6-year-old Falcon Heene said the balloon escape and belief he was aboard was part of “a show.” […]
The Associated Press reported this afternoon that sheriff’s deputies went to the home in February after a 911 hang-up call originated there. A deputy noted that he heard a man inside yelling and that Mayumi Heene had a mark on her face and broken blood vessels in her eye that she said resulted from a problem with contact lenses.
Richard Heene said he had been yelling because the children had stayed up too late. No arrest was made, though the deputy noted in a report that it appeared a physical altercation had occurred.
