Law enforcement agencies issue a stern warning to Idaho teens on TikTok

0

Social media can be used for some pretty awesome things, but also some pretty stupid things.

On the one hand, you can learn a recipe, how to build something like a birdhouse and even fitness tips. On the other hand, there is a web of craziness in the form of conspiracies, dances and of course… trends.

You know what we mean by “trends”.

It's one thing to complete the Ice Bucket Challenge, it's quite another to completely break the law, and that's exactly what police say is happening here in the Treasure Valley. The Ada County Sheriff's Office said they encountered a group of juveniles around 3 a.m. Sunday while responding to a call about suspicious activity.

“At approximately 3 a.m. Sunday, officers responded to a call for a suspicious person in Hidden Springs who was reportedly hiding behind vehicles,” ACSO said on its Facebook page.

“When officers arrived, they located four juveniles who later admitted to ding-dong-ding-dong-ding-ding-ding-draining as part of a TikTok challenge.”

While ding dong urination may sound like yesterday's popular pastime, it's 2024 and things aren't what they used to be. You may remember we told a story about a TikTok challenge where kids kick down doors; While this isn't that bad, the person receiving the prank might assume the worst and, well, things can get ugly quickly.

“Look, we get it. Some TikTok trends are fun: catchy audio, silent reviews, dance routines, stabs,” ACSO said in its post.

“What’s not fun? A late-night call to parents, a free ride home with a deputy and a $150 curfew violation.”

Luckily nothing violent came of the situation, but what do you think? Should ding-dong-ding-dong-ding-dong-ding-dong justify such a punishment? Did the ACSO handle the situation correctly?
