Florida man admits to lighting firecrackers under a child's bed
CRESTVIEW, Fla. - A Florida man told Sheriff's deputies that he threw firecrackers under the bed of a sleeping 9-year-old girl in a "prank gone wrong," according to a post on the Okaloosa Sheriff's Office Facebook page. Matthew Morrison, 44, of Crestview, Florida, was arrested Saturday after deputies responded to a home after the explosion woke the little girl. The owner of the house where this happened told the Sheriff's office that Morrison lives in a tent outside the house and came inside without permission, according to the Sheriff's Office Facebook post. Responding officers spoke with the little girl who said the explosion scared her, making her cry and shake, according to the Facebook post. The Sheriff's Office did not immediately respond to CNN's request for comment.
