A grumpy old man caused multiple injuries after he allegedly unplugged a bounce house at a girl's birthday party in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

According to CBS 12, the party, which also included a DJ, was on May 21 and was hosted by the girl's mother, Deborah Romero.



Surveillance cameras on the house appear to show the grumpy neighbor pulling the plug and walking away. WPEC has reported that multiple children at the party sought medical attention after the incident.

A spokesperson with the Port St. Lucie Police Department told Today that they have identified the grumpy old man, and believe he thought he was unplugging the DJ station, but may have unknowingly unplugged the bounce house.



Today reports that Romero has hired a lawyer and that the grumpy old man is potentially facing trespassing charges.

Of course, a remixed video of the whole situation was uploaded to YouTube.
