Who would be stupid enough to dump a million water beads down a city street? Do you know the cost of cleanup for such a mess? One family learned this lesson the hard way and is facing charges after doing just that.
A YouTube video of a child named Rocco and his 20-year-old nanny riding in the bed of a pickup truck in California filled with Orbeez (water and gel based plastic balls) led authorities to issue charges against two adults.
Police said in a release the video showed “dangerous driving behavior involving children.” In the video, the balls are later dumped out of the back of the truck for fun. They naturally rolled down the street and eventually clogged storm drains and triggered a major cleanup operation.
