Egging houses gets serious: Teen charged with felony for alleged crime


The great American pastime of egging houses just got a little too serious. Next time you think it would be funny to egg someone's house, you might want to think twice. Or maybe leave that second or third carton at home.

Tonka Bay 18-year-old Emery James Eaton is charged with a felony after he allegedly egged a Shorehood home last year. He is accused of throwing about 36 eggs at the house.

Eaton allegedly got into an argument with the daughter of the homeowner. On October 26, the back of the man's home was egged. His daughter then heard Eaton bragging about it as payback.

The kid probably isn't bragging now. It's estimated he caused $2,800 in damage to the home and could serve up to 5 years in prison for the offense. He might also have to pay up to $10,000 in fines.

We're speechless.
