Balloon Dad -- Booked

11/12/2009 4:48 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

richard heene balloon dadTMZ has learned Richard Heene is currently in police custody, and his wife Mayumi is expected to turn herself in shortly.

Richard's attorney announced earlier today that Richard will plead guilty tomorrow to attempting to influence a public servant -- a felony -- and Mayumi will plead guilty to false reporting to authorities -- a misdemeanor.

The lawyer also said the Heenes aren't expected to do jail time.

UPDATE: Richard has been released. We're told Mayumi will not be booked because her charge is a misdemeanor.

what bothers me most is how scary he is. When tapes of him going ballistic on a reality TV show (Wife Swap) and how he treats his own kids... this needs more than anger management.....

Me!    

#6 and #8 are correct - he needs to pay back every dime he wasted of taxpayer money.
He put people in danger. As far as 'Wife Swap", shame on those producers were allowing his behavior towards another to continue.

I repeat - Nice deal, but Richard needs to do some time and keep a low profile for the rest of his life. The kids should stay with mom, whether it is here or in Japan. I was so scared for that boy when we thought he was in the balloon and now I'm furious that it was a planned hoax. They do not deserve the privilege of raising those kids, and it is a privilege in this country to do just that. They squandered that privilege - maybe the kids should be taken from mom too. This whole lunacy is how to swallow.
