According to the Detroit Free Press a Farmington Hills teenager who was home alone invited a couple of his buddies over to shoot pool for a while before leaving to join his parents on a small Memorial Day weekend vacation. When the teen left he allowed his two buddies to stay in the house. Big mistake. His buddies hit on the brainstorm that this would be an excellent opportunity to start a party, which they did. Word quickly spread and the party quickly grew out of control. By the time the cops showed up there had been much looting and an arson fire that did over $1 million in damages.
The 15-year-old who lives at the home isn’t a target of the investigation, Dwyer said. “It’s unfortunate that he made that decision, to allow friends to stay at the house, and they took it upon themselves to start this wild party,” Dwyer said.
I did some pretty boneheaded things in my time as a teenager, but nothing on a scale like this. Wonder if he’ll ever live that one down at family reunions.
