More than 150 facing charges for ‘Manhunt’ game at park

PRINCE GEORGE COUNTY, Va. (WTVR) — Nineteen people have been charged with trespassing for playing a game of hide and seek — and more than 150 others could also face charges.

Officials said more than 100 people flocked to Temple Park in Prince George County for a game called “Manhunt” on the night of Aug. 5.

Police said people who were at the park that night now have the option of turning themselves in. Those who do would sign a statement of understanding acknowledging they broke trespassing laws for being in the park after dark. They would then perform community service as punishment.

People who don’t turn themselves in would face full prosecution, police said.
