TikTok prankster Mizzy arrested for ‘breaching court order’ | UK News
The TikTok prankster known as Mizzy was arrested less than 48 hours after he was fined for breaking into a family’s home.
Bakary-Bronze O’Garro, 18, pleaded guilty to violating a community protection notice after uploading a video of him walking through a married couple’s door and refusing to leave in front of their young children.
The notice, which forbade him from trespassing on private property, was issued last year after numerous complaints from victims of his other antics.
On Friday, he was ordered to pay £365 and imposed a two-year criminal conduct order preventing him from directly or indirectly posting the video without anyone’s consent.
It also provides for harsher penalties for trespassing, including possible jail time, and bans him from the Westfield Shopping Center in Stratford, east London.
Footage posted to O’Garro’s Twitter account on Friday showed the teenager being handcuffed by a plainclothes officer on top of a building.
Then an 18-year-old from Stoke Newington, north London, is led away in front of a sign with the logo of the Iceland supermarket chain.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: “On Friday, May 26, officers arrested an 18-year-old man on suspicion of violating a criminal conduct order.
‘He’s been taken into custody. The investigation is ongoing.”
Community Protection Notices (CPNs) and Criminal Conduct Orders (CBOs) are used by courts to punish antisocial behavior, but their potential penalties vary.
Failure to comply with the CPN can be punished by a fine of between £100 and £2,500, while a violation of the CBO can result in unlimited fines or up to five years in prison (or both).
Trespassing is a civil offense in most cases, meaning that the police cannot automatically take action on incidents such as O’Garro’s home invasion prank unless a crime is committed at the same time.
At a court hearing this week, prosecutors said the teen “caused a lot of suffering to the family.”
Speaking on Piers Morgan Uncensored on Thursday, O’Garro denied he had “terrorized” people.
He said: “I would rather call it fun. But let me get this out of the way first, I apologized.
“You see this situation that exploded on the Internet, like I went into random houses, the next day I apologized because I felt bad.”
But he seemed to defend his actions, brushing off the fine, stating that “British laws are weak” and boasting, “I can do whatever I want.”
