In Las Vegas, rules apply to everyone, even Neil Patrick Harris.
Harris, along with partner David Burtka and twins, Harper and Gideon, took a nice family vacation recently, and things quickly went south.
NPH was on The Late Show With David Letterman where he told the host the tale of getting into some hot water during a recent trip to Las Vegas, where he let one of his one year old twins play around with a slot machine.
The ‘How I Met Your Mother’ star explains, “I thought Vegas would be fun for little kids. To see all the lights, the blinking lights, all the waterfalls and water shows. I thought the Bellagio Fountains would be cool. It turns out they can’t gamble…
“I thought all the turny wheels and video poker machines would be hilarious for them. We took them down onto the floor and it didn’t go so well. Harper was trying one of the slots and within like 25 or 30 seconds an officer threatened to put David in jail.”
Neil’s partner, David Burtka, documented the entire thing on his video camera, and when NPH showed off the video, you can hear a casino host in the background saying, “It’s against the law. It’s a 10,000 fine.”
