A disgusting "Ice-Bucket Challenge" prank where some suburban Cleveland teens dumped urine and feces on an unsuspecting autistic 14-year-old boy has inspired comedian Drew Carey to offer $10,000 to help find the responsible culprits. The stomach-turning incident, which was captured on video, was first reported to police in Bay Village, on Wednesday. Police Chief Mark Spaetzel told the Cleveland Plain Dealer that it was "reprehensible ... that these kids would take advantage of a vulnerable teenager."
On Saturday, "Price Is Right" host Carey tweeted, "Horrendous. These kids should be arrested and expelled." He added in a second tweet, "If the Bay Village PD wants to start a reward fund to find who did this, contact me. I'll donate $10,000."
Bay Village police said charges would be brought as soon as they discover who was behind the prank. In a statement, the Bay Village School District said, "We ask our parents and our community members to be patient as we work to discover all the facts. This incident is, at present, a police matter. Please respect the privacy of all the minor children involved, both victim and suspected offenders."
