Kentucky City bans throwing Candy in parades

Councilman Scottie Ernst brought up the issue at the end of the council meeting, the Danville Advocate-Messenger reported. He said he was worried the city would be vulnerable to a lawsuit if someone got hurt by trying to run into the street to retrieve candy, or by getting hit by a flying peppermint or sucker.

City Attorney Carol Hill said the ban may be hard to enforce, but Stanford Police Chief Keith Middleton said it is possible.
