Local Supermarkets Crying Over Smashed Milk

The latest on online prank dejour perpetuated by people with way too much time on their hands is called “milk smashing”.  It involves young people strolling down a supermarket aisle carrying a gallon of milk in each hand, then suddenly flinging the containers into the air and letting them crash and spill on the floor.

This scene is captured on video by an accomplice and posted on You Tube or Facebook. This is often accompanied by slipping and sliding through the spill.

Oh what fun you say?  The store management and law enforcement disagree.  According to the Buffalo News, Tops Markets has seen six of these episodes in the past week, while Wegmans has has three area stores hit by the merry pranksters.  So far, no injuries have been reported in any of the local incidents, but police say the wise guys could face criminal charges and store officials say they will prosecute anyone that gets caught.

Also reported in the Buffalo News, a Newfane High School senior was arrested Friday in a “milk smashing” prank at a Tops Market in the town after he was recognized by store employees and bragged about his actions on Facebook.

The 18-year-old Burt resident was nabbed by Niagara County sheriff’s deputies at school and arraigned in Newfane Town Court on a misdemeanor charge of criminal mischief in the incident, which took place Monday at the Tops on Lockport-Olcott Road.

Watch for more “milk smashing” incidents coming to a TV reality show near you.
