10/19/2009 1:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Richard HeeneTMZ has learned of more legal woes for Richard Heene. He has a criminal record in L.A. and was sentenced to jail.

Heene was arrested in April 1997 and charged with misdemeanor vandalism, vehicle tampering, and disturbing the peace. We do not know the name of the victim.

On April 15, 1997, Heene pled no contest to vandalism and the other charges were dismissed. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail, 2 years probation and ordered to pay restitution of $100. It appears from the court record Heene served only 4 days and was then placed under house arrest.

The case was prosecuted by the L.A. City Attorney.

Why didn't ABC background check him for Wife Swap? Surely this would (should) disqualify someone whom you're considering pairing with an unsuspecting stranger.

too sad    

don't give him a show and dont pay him for interviews .

if this is not his first offence then maybe jail time for him after all, even though the sheriff said his jail is full, this guy needs to go IN

Marhan makes a very important point. Did ABC do a background check on the moron? So wrong to pair up such a misfit with another unsuspecting family. Especially when the other family are misfits themselves. Although at least they were just kooky, and not violent like TeeneyWieneHeene

Pray For the Beaten Up!    

Falco looks like a reptilian shapeshifter he doesn't have a chin just a pointy thing like most reptiles....If I were Falco I would change my name to Lizard.

Disturbing the peace!! That's a good one. And no one was at peace worrying about his son, Falcon. That sherriff had egg on his face and saying we were all fooled!! The public were not fooled!!

Agree with the posts above. No background check before 'Wife Swap'?? No background check on that sicko Jenkins before he was put on his reality show?? It's looking like the people who line these people up for the shows don't really give a da.. about who they are putting on because they're just lookin' for the 'buck'! They need to investigate these networks for this crap! Clamp down on these BS reality shows. NOTHING GOOD COMES FROM THESE SHOWS. Good grief, look at the Gosselins & LEARN network producers! Is it worth all the grief?? Ask TLC.

If the people who appear on these shows aren't 'waste's of flesh' before they sign on for these shows then they BECOME one during it.

They were in it for the money    

This guy is a loose cannon. He has servere issues, no doubt about it.
Stop giving him any more time. He isn't worth it. the sooner it stops, the soone he and his balloon will go away.
