Another unfortunate event happened during the NYC fireworks this week, leading to an arrest last night. A 15 year old Brooklyn resident has been identified as the suspect for throwing a firework into a Brooklyn residence. The teen was charged with arson and assault in the first degree. However the DA has already noted that more charges may arise as the investigation continues.
Once the video was posted to Snapchat it instantly went viral across Twitter.
Many people were displeased with the actions and talked about how dangerous something like this could be.
When reports came out and the 15 year old was arrested, he learned just how dangerous it can be. The family of 5 that live in the Brooklyn residence were home at the time. Along with over $8,000 in property damages, their 18 month old child was struck in the face and had to be hospitalized.
The family is separately suing in civil court for the lifetime physical scaring that the infant will probably incur.
As of now the 15 year old Brooklyn teen remains unnamed, though he is in custody.
