Purple peril: Homeowners group threatens family over swingset's color

LEE SUMMIT, Mo. - A Missouri mom said Friday her homeowners association is threatening her with jail all because her children's backyard swing set was painted purple--more than two years ago.

Marla Stout says the homeowners association for the vast Raintree Lake subdivision in Lee's Summit has complained to her that the color is not in harmony with other colors in the neighborhood.
