A Kentucky teenager will have to find a new temporary route to walk his dog after a judge told him he’s not allowed to walk past a local bingo parlor.

Austyn Whaley was recently walking his dog when he wandered into the parlor and yelled “Bingo!” in the middle of a game.

Players weren’t happy about it.  An officer who was at the game put Whaley in handcuffs, walked him to his patrol car and wrote him a citation for “alarm to patrons.”

When Whaley went to court for the citation, the judge banned him from walking by the parlor and also from saying the word “bingo” for the next six months.

If the teen obeys the judge’s orders and doesn’t get in any other trouble, the citation will be eliminated from his record.
