Man arrested for letting blow-up doll drift into flight path

A 19-year-old was arrested after the blow-up doll he had allegedly tied helium balloons to interrupted flight paths above Canada. The man could face charges for the incident at Vancouver Harbour as police revealed it was an apparent stunt that he was filming. West Vancouver police said two men were filming a video when the sex toy drifted into the sky at Ambleside Beach on July 3.

It was described as ‘an adult-sized and shaped inflatable’ with 10 large helium balloons attached to it. ‘The officer believed release of the inflatables posed a hazard to aircraft entering or leaving the harbour area,’ officers said in a statement. ‘As the officer approached, one of the males released the balloons and inflatable, which then floated several hundred metres into the air.’

The apparent prank affected air travel in the area as Transport Canada and the Civil Aviation Branch had to send a warning out to pilots. Both men were arrested and later released pending an investigation.

‘I’m going to court September 19th on a charge of mischief for letting a sex doll that was strapped to a few balloons fly away,’ he tweeted. ‘Just wanted to let everyone know that in Canada you must have no fun.’
