Some Butte teens may be crying over spilled milk.
Thats because they face possible charges for imitating an Internet prank known as gallon smashing that has gone viral recently.
Butte police say one 15-year-old boy was cited with misdemeanor criminal mischief and theft for intentionally destroying two one-gallon cartons of milk in Walmart Friday evening. Police suspect three other teens may have been involved and charges were pending Monday.
The teen grabbed two one-gallon jugs of milk and threw them on the floor in Walmart at about 6:30 p.m., police reported. The jugs ruptured and spilled milk all over the floor; the juvenile then fell to the floor and rolled in the spilled milk, according to the police report.
Another teen allegedly recorded the incident with his cell phone, according to Undersheriff George Skuletich. Employees detained the teen accused of smashing the jugs, while the other teens managed to get away.
The boy allegedly told police his friends wanted to record him smashing the milk and then post the video on YouTube, Skuletich said.

So... your idiot kid does stupid things wqhewn he is growing up and you beat his ass (I know I would)
CPS comes and charges you with child abuse, the kid learns he can do anything and the government will ensure there is no consequences.
So.. he does “gallon spashing”... Possibly the stupidest new ‘prank’ i have ever heard of, because he has no clue what level of idiocy he can get aw2ay with, and the finally have to arrest him.
Go into his room, smash a gallon of milk against the ground or wall and tell him to deal with it.
You basically summed it up.
My Grandmother would have said “take them to the field and horsewhip them” for doing such a stupid thing.
Now they are only arrested.
Only one gallon? I mean come one go for at least five.
They have got to put these punks in jail for quite a while and fine them heavily if they’re ever going to stop this crap. If they pussy-foot with these punks that’re doing this, they’ll just encourage this to go on.
Jail time . . . heavy fines . . . criminal records
As a very young kid (4th grade) I got caught shoplifting some candy from the local store.
I wish they had just called the cops instead of my old man. Although it was many, many years before I would even pick up a pencil if I saw one laying on the street or playground!
We need to employ Singapore’s method of disciplining with a good cane lashing.
“Go into his room, smash a gallon of milk against the ground or wall and tell him to deal with it.”
Yep. That’s always my way to deal with something like this. First he cleans up the store.Then do the same thing ten times over to the kid. In his room, in his car, etc.
Then call it even. Save the money spent on the criminal justice system. No one got hurt; he will hopefully learn.
There would be no need for that had the parents “spared the rod” on them when they were much much smaller.
It is these mindless zombies that will believe everything the Demonwits slop out and vote accordingly.
Best then to pour milk all inside his car in summer.
I realize pranks, especially ones done by teenagers, generally are pretty dumb. That said, I honestly don’t get the appeal of this one. Smashing a couple of jugs of milk and then rolling around in it? Whoopee.
My parents spanked me and my sister hundreds of times - yes, we deserved it. My two younger siblings didn’t get spanked EVER. Sis and I are successful and have no criminal records. Brothers have horrible credit, can’t hold down a job and think laws are merely suggestions.
Back in the 70’s, I had just washed my car and parked it on the street in front of my home. Two young boys took a fire extinguisher from a phone booth and sprayed my car.
Someone saw it and told me who they were. I did not call the police....kids do stuff like this. I called their father. He brought them down to my house, where he had them admit they did it and tell me they were sorry.
Then, he had them walk back and forth between my car and my house filling a bucket with water until they had cleaned and rinsed my car.
I’m sure they learned a lot more from this than jail or fines their parents would have had to pay; and they don’t have criminal records. They are both fine young men with families now.
This is the way we did things before the nanny government culture.
LOL- you and me both!
I was not even the one who shoplifted- i was just with an idiot who stuffed somethign into his jacket but we BOTH got pulled in
Believe me, it NEVER occurred to me to shoplift again.
That's really nasty, it's near impossible to get that sour smell out. The only thing I have ever smelled that passed that on the stink-o-meter was a two week old corpse left in a car with the windows rolled up tight.
For the curious, an older gentleman was driving out to his deer camp, which was way out in the boondocks, accessible only via firelane when he suffered a massive heart attack and died. His buddies were already in camp and when he didn't arrive they assumed he changed his mind and was taking a pass due to his advancing years. His wife didn't expect any contact as the deer camp was way off the beaten path and she assumed he would be gone for at least two weeks. The result was nobody missed him until it was time to break camp and return home. Whereupon the former friends found his car where it had rolled off the firelane and stopped in the ditch with the engine running until the tank ran dry. The Sheriff called for a wrecker to extract the car and they towed it to the garage where I worked. People tried cleaning the interior of all soft trim and steam cleaning the bare metal but nothing could get rid of the odor. The car was finally scrapped out 'cuz nobody could stand to be near it.
So you want to ruin their lives for breaking a gallon of milk?
