Police in Denver are looking into possible charges after a teen jumped into a fish aquarium at Bass Pro Shops Saturday evening April 29th.

Police say the teen only suffered only minor injuries after bumping his head during the incident at the Denver Bass Pro Shops in the Shops at Northfield Stapleton.

Denver Police did not say what possible charges could be filed in the case. Investigators will be talking to the teen and his parents before any possible legal action will be taken.

Bass Pro Shops released the following statement about the bizarre incident:

“Yesterday a teenage minor attempted to enter our aquarium as part of an intended prank. Our associates and security team quickly addressed the issue safely and without incident. We also appreciate the assistance of local law enforcement. Such occurrences are extremely rare and highly discouraged. We host more than 120 million visitors every year and provide a safe, fun experience for families who share our respect for wildlife.”

It’s not clear what motivated the teen to jump into a fish tank at the sporting goods store, but a quick search of YouTube shows teens across the country have performed similar stunts. Just like the video below.
