Viral videos featuring young people smashing gallons of
liquid in grocery stores have prompted several instances of the prank in
In the video, young people walk down an aisle holding a
gallon of milk, orange juice, or other liquid, and smash them on the ground or
into shelves. They then throw themselves on the ground and pretend to have
trouble getting up, slipping in the mess. Bystanders are left wondering what
happened, and some try to help the prankster.
Florence Police say "gallon smashing" isn't funny, and it
can lead to criminal charges. Detective Jerry Pearson said his department has
received two reports of the prank in Florence.
Pearson said they are searching for the pranksters involved
in two cases at local stores, and they will prosecute.
If a person is caught gallon smashing, they could be charged
with criminal mischief, a misdemeanor.
