Bail Bonds, Bingo and Some Angry Senior Citizens

bingo bustedHave you ever played a game of bingo?  We aren’t talking about your garden variety game of bingo either.  We are talking about big halls filled with countless rows of seniors, superstitious hats, lucky charms and quiet seriousness that would put any SAT test to shame.  We are talking major league Bingo, where the players are experienced and the mood is anything but jovial.  Well at least not in Covington, Kentucky, where a young man learned the hard way.

Earlier this week a judge passed down a ruling that prevented a young man from saying the word “Bingo” for the next six months.  The ruling comes on the heels of the man’s interruption of a local bingo game.  According to authorities the young man walked into a bingo parlor and yelled “BINGO.”  Apparently this act of defiance threw many of the bingo players on an unnecessary and dangerous emotional roller coaster ride.  Upon hearing the bingo, many sighs of disappointment and failure came from the crowd, but just as they were spinning out of control into despair, came the cry of “NO BINGO,” upon which the crowd found new life…and for some new anger.

The young man was arrested and charged with second degree disorderly conduct.  He could have been looking at a $250 fine and up to 90 days in jail.  We don’t think that a bail bond was ever set.  The judge however showed some leniency and decided to let the man off the hook under one condition…he can’t say the word “Bingo” for 6 months.  However if he feels the need to do so, he can say the words Bango, Bongo and Bungo as much as he wants.  Read the original story below.
