 Calling out "bingo" when you don't have one can get you in trouble in northern Kentucky.

Ask Austin Whaley.

The 18-year-old man was recently sentenced to refrain from saying "bingo" for six months. That's because he and several other teens did that at a Covington bingo hall.

An off-duty police officer working security cited Whaley for second-degree disorderly conduct. The affidavit stated the prank disrupted the game for several minutes and alarmed patrons.

Kenton District Judge Douglas Grothaus didn't send Whaley to jail, but told him to not even use the word for a while.

Grothaus told The Kentucky Enquirer (http://bit.ly/YFO5Dj ) Whaley was a good kid who hadn't been in trouble before. He said the court must also have a sense of humor.
