Barney - Barney & Friends Co-creator's Son Arrested

The son of Barney & Friends co-creator Sheryl Leach has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

Patrick Leach was taken in to custody in Malibu, California on 9 January (13) after allegedly shooting a 49-year-old man in the chest.

The victim, whose name has not yet been released, was treated at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, and is expected to make a full recovery.

Leach is currently being held on $500,000 (£312,500) bond and cops are still trying to determine a motive, according to local publication The Acorn.

The 27-year-old suspect's mother is one of the founders of the popular U.S. children's show, about the famous titular purple dinosaur and his pals.
