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.

The worst thing about this creep and his wife are that they taught their children to lie. They should go to jail just for that. I hate liars and theives. And this guy has the nerve to think what he did was all right.

First, take those loony, undisciplined foulmouthed kids away, see if some real parents can straighten them out before its too late. And, leave this A-hole in jail for a while to do some serious "face down in the pillow" time with every Bubba there. Then, deport the stupid wife to Japan. When sore-assed Dad gets out of jail, let him work to pay back the farmer, the county, everyone who wasted time and resources on this idiot and his dumb family.

I hope the judge ignores the prosecution and sentences him to some jail time. And I sure as hell hope he has to reimburse any expenses!

HOW TO MAKE A WATER BALLOON:

1.Run down to your local corner store and pick up decent sized water balloons or normal balloons.

2.Half fill up the balloon with water, stretch the top and put an egg in the balloon.(make sure the balloons are not old)

3.If there is any space in the balloon left, pour in some more water.

4.Tie the balloon up.

5.For the perfect throw, fake throw it then throw it. If you hit your opponents this should end the fight!

Good. After this is all over Richard, you need to go out and get a day job. Any kind of a job. Support your family properly. Because it really isn't about you. It's about your wife and your 3 kids. Grow up and stop yelling and cussing!!!
