Sheriff's Dept. Investigating Balloon Family

10/16/2009 12:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

balloon boyTMZ just spoke with the Larimer County Sheriff's Dept. who told us they are aware of Falcon Heene's comments on "Larry King Live" tonight -- and are "investigating the situation."

Cops also tells us they've been inundated with calls from tipsters who wanted to give cops a heads up that the 6-year-old, who was thought to have been trapped in a runaway home made balloon earlier today, explained to Larry King Live, "We did this for the show."

People are driving you a little crazy today -- so see if you can get them to chill out and leave you alone! Your energy is best spent cleaning up and taking care of little details, so focus on the small stuff.

If they did this for publicity which is what its starting to sound like, give them tons of publicity by putting the whole family in jail! The amount of resources that where wasted and the amount of productivity that was lost by the nation why we watched this saga unfold has got to be in the billions!

The next SHOW they should do is the NANNY. These parents are not watching the children. They need parenting classes. That kid should have been fed and put to bed for hiding. THOUSANDS of dollars were spent trying to save this brat.

I'm glad the Sheriff is looking into it, but they will never files charges or anything. Unfortunately, the press hungry father has won his 15 more minutes of fame with this hoax.
