TikTok trend forces Sarpy County sheriff to cite several teens on suspicion of criminal mischief
PAPILLION, Neb. (KLKN) — Several Nebraska teens are saying, “Oh Yeah!” but local law enforcement is saying, “Oh No!”
It’s all in response to a social media trend that’s now made its way to our state, forcing the Sarpy County Sheriff’s Office to cite at least nine teenagers for criminal mischief.
According to authorities, deputies responded to multiple incidents involving privacy fences being smashed by teenagers this week. The juveniles are mimicking the Kool-Aid Man’s commercial where he smashes through walls by instead crashing through residential fences.
On Thursday, Sarpy County Sheriff Jeffery Davis stated, “I am grateful for the cooperation we had from the community, our friends from local media outlets, and the diligent work of our Road Patrol and Investigations units. This collaboration was instrumental in solving these cases quickly and efficiently.”
People are encouraged to keep sharing videos with local law enforcement to help them crack down on these vandalizations.
