"Balloon Boy's" Parents Full of Hot Air

A run-away UFO-shaped balloon. A 6 year-old boy trapped inside. On October 16, the world was captivated as this drama unfolded in front of them, only to find out that the boy was hiding at the house the entire time.

It turns out this was nothing but an elaborate scheme set up by Richard and Mayumi Heene to increase their exposure and be on television. The Heenes are expected to plead guilty to criminal charges on Friday stemming from the incident.

While it is possible that they could face jail time, the prosecutor will recommend probation.
