Comedian Drew Carey and other celebrities offer reward in “ice” bucket prank
BAY VILLAGE, Ohio — Comedian Drew Carey, who is the host of the popular game show “The Price is Right,” is offering to help police find those involved in dumping a bucket of urine and feces on a special-needs teen in Ohio who was reportedly told the prank was part of the “Ice Bucket Challenge.”
The Cleveland native posted on his Twitter account Saturday that he’s willing to donate $10,000 if police in suburban Bay Village want to start a reward fund.
If the Bay Village PD wants to start a reward fund to find who did this, contact me. I’ll donate $10k. http://t.co/ugqeLbu5ob

Then on Sunday comedian Jenny McCarthy tweeted she was joining Carey by donating an additional $10,000 to the reward.
Shortly after McCarthy put out her offer to donate, her husband, Donnie Wahlberg, tweeted that he would add another $10,000 to the reward, bringing the total to $30,000.

The 14-year-old victim’s mother found a cellphone video of teenagers dumping the bucket on her autistic son.
Bay Village High School organized a vigil for the teen before a football game on Friday and school officials have condemned the prank.
