Lordy, Lordy! From 'happy slapping' to 'happy splashing'. An investigation has been launched after a video- posted on YouTube- showing a motorist from Devon, England splashing kids at a bus stop, came to the attention of police.
According to officers, the 29 year old female driver got in touch with her local police station a week ago to confess.
The passenger, who admittedly doubles up as a rather facetious commentating cameraman, is heard saying: "Here we go, ready to drench the kids!" A few soaked kids and roughly ten seconds later, he says: "That was brilliant! Awesome!"
Watching the video for the first time, I was a little shocked especially as it looks and sounds like a mean premeditated splash attack but ashamedly I found it hard to contain my laughter.
The driver claims that the children asked to be splashed. Now, I understand that some kids love playing in puddles but this could have ended up as a freak accident. Not only that, but as a holder of a full driving licence, she really should have known better.
Having watched the video a few more times and read reports on the incident, I reckon it was all blown out of proportion.
Take a look at the video below and draw your own conclusion.
