This Saturday morning, a man who threw lighted firecrackers under the bed of a 9-year-old girl while she was sleeping was arrested in Okaloosa, Florida. "It was a joke that went wrong," said the 44-year-old when he was arrested by the police.
County police responded to an alert call on Godfrey Street, located in the Crestview neighborhood. Its owners reported that a subject named Matthew Morrison, who lived in a tent outside his home, entered without permission to throw a bunch of firecrackers.
The homeowner chased the suspect with a stick to get him out of his house and called the police.
Morrison is now facing charges of theft, cruelty to a minor without serious harm, and possession of a controlled substance.
