Dumb people make Chuck E. Cheese sad

Those crazy, overprotective adults who keep on showing up at Chuck E. Cheese locations around the country are at it again and this time, a man who assaulted a CEC mascot has been fined for his misbehavior after he ripped the head off of the costume that the employee was in when he thought that the employee had pinned his son against a game. The employee said that he didn’t touch any of the children and only put his arms out to get through a crowd of wild kids who were trying to push him over.  Another witness backed up the employee’s story and the explosive parent gets a fine, escaping a six-month jail term.From the looks of it, the 11-year old kid made up the story after he bumped into the mascot and then went crying to his dad about who then went after the mascot.

Such are the joys of running a business at times, when you have to deal with crazy people who make events up to cover up their own bad behavior. At least with this story we finally see someone causing a ruckus at a CEC getting what’s coming to them.

Arcade Belgium's look at ATEI 2009

In case you are on the look out for some more ATEI goodness, Arcade Belgium has posted a plethora of very nice high-rez pictures of the event. I guess this will help tide us over until ASI next week (where I got to see one new product that will be shown there when I visited my distributor today, a cool coin-op cotton candy machine). Hit the link below to enjoy!
