A Colorado sheriff's deputy responded to a 911 hang-up in February at the home of a family now known for reporting that their young son was in a balloon that got away. The Larimer County Sheriff's deputy who went to the home said he heard a man yelling and, once inside, noticed Mayumi Heene had a mark on her cheek and broken blood vessels in her eye. She said it was because of a problem with her contacts.

Richard Heene said he was yelling because his children stayed up past their bedtime. The deputy concluded he didn't have probable cause to make an arrest, but believed a physical altercation may have occurred. No charges were filed.

It was one of three 911 calls made from the home within the past year, but the only one in which a report was filed.
