Denver residents recently witnessed a unique example of risky and potentially self-destructive teenaged behavior when a young man jumped about thirty feet from an upper bridge into a fish tank in the center of the Bass Pro Shops location at Northfield Stapleton while his friends recorded video footage of the jump. He injured his head, but was not taken to the hospital, and appeared not to have caused damage to the aquarium itself. Bass Pro Shops retained an animal care team to assess the fishes’ health after the incident, and a company spokesperson indicated that the fish “were doing okay.” At the time, Denver police said the teenager could potentially face criminal charges for the jump if the aquarium or the fish had been damaged, and that the young man would be asked to go to a police station and meet with detectives in the subsequent week.
