Barney was a big, purple dinosaur with a ceaseless smile that taught kids about hugging and loitering in playgrounds after school. His creator, Sheryl Leach, may need to teach her kid about bail, because he’s been arrested for attempted murder.
Patrick Leach, son of the Barney creator, was busted in Agoura Hills, CA for allegedly shooting a 49-year-old man in Malibu on January 9. The victim survived and is expected to recover.
Police are still trying to find a motive, but they have found evidence that connects Patrick to the incident. He was detained before he could flee to Imagination Island with BJ and Baby Bop.
