Seems police officers in Des Moines got an interesting 911 call yesterday: kids playing flaming kickball. When the cops arrived on the scene, they found two children, ages 12 and 14, standing on a driveway that reeked of gasoline. Nearby: a gas can whose spigot had melted. According to the police report: “Both said they poured gas on a baseball, lit it on fire and kicked it back and forth, pouring more gas on it to keep it lit.”
Well … at least the kids were outdoors, getting some exercise…
