Balloon Boy's Dad Lands in Jail


Richard Heene followed up his Oscar-worthy performance on Larry King Live Friday night by checking into Larimer County Detention Center this morning. As punishment for his felony count of "attempting to influence a public servant," the one-time Wife Swap star will swap his wife again, this time for a shiv-wielding prisoner named Torch. The suffering will last 90 days, without cameras or angst-ridden pre-teens refusing to do their algebra homework nearby. [TMZ]

    Heene is also forbidden from using these exploits for profit or promotion for the next four years. In response he was heard in the courtroom saying, "Noooooo, why don't you just take my THUMBS?!"
