Florida Teens Hit with Felony Charges for Dumping Trash in Ocean after Video Goes Viral

Two teenage partygoers turned themselves into authorities on Friday following a video that went viral showing them throwing trash cans full of rubbish into the water while boating off the coast of Florida last weekend.

The seas off Boca Raton, Fla. were polluted during a recent boat voyage by a 16-year-old and a 15-year-old kid, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The boys were both charged with third-degree felony pollution.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) released a statement stating, “The two juveniles turned themselves into authorities to face the consequences for violating the laws related to polluting the waters of the state of Florida,” as reported by WPBF.

Wavy Boats, a YouTuber, uploaded the horrifying footage of a boatload of teenagers leaving the Boca Bash chaotic party scene for the fast garbage dump over the water.

Drone footage purportedly showed the 16-year-old boater nervously air-humping as the vessel departed from the inlet of Lake Boca and entered open waters, while he clung to the boat’s canopy.

The 16-year-old acting as “captain” of the boat and his shirtless accomplice proceeded to dump two full garbage cans overboard when the vessel encountered intense waves.

As the cans were finished, one of the dweebs briefly celebrated by raising the cans above their heads, all the while the waves tossed the boat.

Wildlife officials from the state labeled the teen’s conduct a “serious crime” and strongly disapproved of their conduct.

The boat’s owner was located and questioned by law enforcement, who then visited his home. The owner verified to the officers that the person operating the boat in the video was his son, who was fifteen years old.

The maximum penalties for the youths were five years in jail and a fine of $50,000.
