Kentucky Fair Tears Down Casey Anthony-Themed Dunking Booth

Red Huber-Pool/Getty Images(LEXINGTON, Ky.) -- A Casey Anthony-themed dunking booth at a bluegrass fair in Kentucky stirred up quite a bit of controversy, resulting in it ultimately being torn down.

The booth had two targets -- one reading “guilty” and the other reading “innocent” -- at which contestants would throw softballs.  If one of the targets was hit, a Casey Anthony impersonator would be dropped into a pool of water.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports that fair officials decided to tear the booth down after they started hearing negative comments about it.

Chairman of the fair and former police officer Ron Mossotti said in statement, “The Lexington Lions Club, who sponsors the Bluegrass Fair, wanted to be respectful of the growing public sentiment that the booth created by crossing the line.”
