Man cited for falsely calling bingo during game in Covington - | Lufkin and Nacogdoches, Texas

Judge: 18-yr-old banned from saying 'BINGO'

Posted: Updated:

Don't joke about bingo. An 18-year-old isn't allowed to utter the word 'Bingo' for the next six months.

Austin Whaley walked into a bingo hall in Covington and shouted 'BINGO', pretending he'd won the game.

After refusing to apologize, an off duty Park Hills officer cited Whaley for second degree disorderly conduct.

According to the citation, the outburst delayed the game by several minutes and caused alarm to patrons.

A Kentucky judge ruled Whaley is not allowed to say the word 'bingo' for the next six months.
