Barney the purple dinosaur creator's son allegedly shoots neighbor1/17/2013
It's been a bad run for loveable kids' show characters. First, the allegations about Elmo's unsavory side, and now the son of the Barney creator has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder. Patrick Leach, whose mother, Sharon, inflicted a giant purple dinosaur on the world, allegedly shot his 49-year-old neighbor in a swanky Malibu neighborhood, police say. Leach was reportedly spotted as he fled the scene, and officers say the shooting was the result of a vague-sounding "trespassing issue." Leach was released on $1 million bond. "I think it was just a brewing dispute that got out of hand," one unnamed neighbor said. "I don't want to say too much more because, well, he did shoot someone." [Source]
