Port St. Lucie Police arrested and charged a neighbor with unplugging an inflatable bounce house at a birthday party in Port St. Lucie. The video of the incident went viral.

Charles Wotruba, 70, is facing charges of disorderly conduct and trespassing after his arrest on Friday.

The incident happened last month at a home on Flowermound Circle. A mother rented a princess bounce house for a party for her one-year-old daughter. She told police the inflatable began to lose air with about 10-15 kids playing inside.

The woman checked her surveillance video which showed a man had unplugged the bounce house from the wall.

Several kids had to be seen by their doctors due to the bounce house deflating on them, according to her statement to police.


The story first reported by CBS12 reporter Andrea Marvin went viral.
