PLATTE, S.D. (AP) — Police in Platte say a juvenile was responsible for placing fish hooks on playground equipment.

Authorities say a man discovered the fish hooks on a baby swing when he was about to put his granddaughter into the swing on Saturday afternoon.

Police Chief Brandon Semmler described the incident as a "lapse in judgment rather than a despicable prank." He says the investigation is closed.

The name and age of the juvenile were not released.
