Boy arrested after throwing apples
An 11-year-old boy was arrested Wednesday after a neighbor complained about two boys picking her apples and throwing them at cars.
The boy, a Broadway Street resident currently living on Forest Drive, was charged with persistent disorderly conduct.
The boy and a friend were plucking apples from a woman’s fruit tree Wednesday evening and lobbing them at homes and passing cars, according to a Sandusky police report. When the woman emerged from her house to chastise them, the boys began cursing and aiming the apples at her, the report said.
Officers found apples scattered throughout the area and on the pavement. The boy’s grandmother was not surprised when officers told her about the incident. She cited several recent behavioral problems, the report said.
The boy admitted he threw the apples, but he denied aiming them at any specific target, the report said. He was arrested and taken to the Erie County Juvenile Justice Center.
