'Gallon Smashing' Incident at Safeway on Laguna in Elk Grove (VIDEO)

Somebody walks through a grocery store aisle with a couple of gallons of milk (or juice) in their hands. And then, seemingly out of nowhere, they take a nasty spill, causing both gallons to explode.

It appears that an online trend called "Gallon Smashing" has now swept through Elk Grove. 

Here's how it works: Somebody walks through a grocery store aisle with a couple of gallons of milk (or juice) in their hands. And then, seemingly out of nowhere, they take a nasty spill, causing both gallons to explode. 

But the fall is not accidental. It's a deliberate act that will later get uploaded to YouTube. 

The Safeway store on Laguna Boulevard was hit by a gallon smasher last Friday, according to Fox40. They say police are still looking at details. 

“These kids are opening themselves up to a lot of liability,” Elk Grove Police Officer Chris Trim told Fox40.  “If I were a parent I’d have a harsh discussion and make sure they weren’t participating in this.”

I think it's terrible and not funny. They should be arrested.

I think these you tube videos that influence dangerous behavior shouldn't be allowed . They should be red flagged and banned . So many teens are using them to get ideas or copy what they see .

This is a result of parents being reluctant to use spanking as a tool for behavior modification.
