Suspect arrested after firework explodes in Dodgers-Giants crowd
A 21-year-old man has been booked on suspicion of willfully discharging and possessing an explosive and discharging a firework in a public place. That 'public place' was AT&T Park.
File under: "Sub-morons of the spectator-sports world." According to the San Francisco Chronicle, someone at Wednesday night's Dodgers-Giants game in San Francisco lit and tossed a large firecracker -- apparently an M-80 -- into a crowd standing on one of the AT&T Park concourses. At least five people sustained minor injuries, including temporary hearing loss in some instances.
More from the Chronicle:
"A number of people were screaming and running from the area," said Officer Gordon Shyy, a San Francisco police spokesman.
Giants security officers detained San Bruno resident Paolo Pavone, 21, who was booked by police on suspicion of willfully discharging and possessing an explosive and discharging a firework in a public place.
The perpetrator is quite fortunate he didn't seriously injure or kill someone, as M-80s -- if indeed that's what this was -- are pretty powerful as consumer fireworks go.
On a more general level, try just watching the game and not being a sociopath.
