The mini-golf resort that has been overwhelmed by hundreds of children wreaking havoc wants teens filmed destroying things to be punished in court.
Police were already meeting with management of the Putt-Putt Fun Center in Memphis on Monday when the general manager Aaron Bos told us he wanted to press charges against the girls in the video seen throwing plexiglass and other large objects.
We’re told management is trying to identify the girls and that they already have some promising leads after combing through social media. Looks like some of the alleged perpetrators could have bragged about the shenanigans.
Management tells us it will cost $ 300 to replace the damaged plexiglass … plus smaller repairs for the broken flowerpots.
The Memphis Police Department told TMZ … that a juvenile subpoena has been written for a 13-year-old boy for disorderly conduct and that they are still investigating others.
As we reported … a chaotic scene erupted at the mini-golf resort on Sunday after parents dropped off hundreds of children, who started going to HAM when they couldn’t get a refund.
Management is concerned that some staff may not return to work after the incident – most are teenagers themselves – and after seeing the video, their parents might think it is not a safe place to work. Putt-Putt says he’s using an employee advisor.
We are told the new safety precautions include the addition of security guards who will be responsible for preventing parents from dropping their children off unsupervised. A new policy for minors to be accompanied by a guardian will be applied.
The community rallies around the business … we are told the phones have rang, people have volunteered to come and help clean up the mess and say how appalled they are at the behavior seen in the video.
We also learned more about what sparked the chaos … management says kids were jumping in go-karts, brawls broke out, staff members felt unsafe and cops couldn’t control all the children, so the management closed the whole complex.
