Totally a dick move, but funny as hell!

If you play the prank, no matter how funny, get ready for a beating.

/since I wasn't there, funny as heck.

That's IRL Maximum Trolling.

I mean, lock him up for a few days, to remind him it was a Bad Thing, but that's hilarious. That's an arrest that shouldn't hurt your chance at landing the right job. In fact, if you tell that story during the interview, it might get you a raise.

And nobody got shot for making a video?

/it IS funny as hell

Yeah, this sounds about like something I would have done while drunk at the Deadwood in Iowa City way back in the day.
Funny as hell to read about, and I'm sure it seemed like a great idea at the time.

csb; the cops (including the tactical team from the big city nearby) were staging a raid on a crackhouse down the street. Big deal kind of operation, snipers on nearby roofs and stuff

and where is my little brother? in the backyard playing with his bullwhip. He gave it one good crack and had about three guns pointed at him before the cops realized what was going on.

I have a video in my mind of the actions of the bomb squad when that firework went off and can't stop replaying it or LMAO.

Unless the job in question involves something like working at a construction site where explosives are used.

I always thought it would be hilarious to throw a lit pack of firecrackers out the car window as the cop was walking back to his car after stopping me, but I never had the balls (or the stupidity) to actually do it.

Ftfa:(very first paragraph): "An Iowa City man has been charged for setting off a firecracker while officials investigated a potential bomb threat a few blocks away. "

Just how strong was this firecracker? Something smells here.

Did he know the bomb squad was there? Or just celebrating Sunday with a Silver Salute?

It's one of those chinese made m-80 clones, will definitely send a full soup can flying 30 feet or so.  if the streets are narrow enough, it might echo like a gunshot.

I'm wondering if the name is an actual name or typical hyperbole by the police.  That, said throwing firecrackers around late night it's going to be frowned upon.

My guess is that "drunk guy throws firecracker" isn't as exciting and humorous as the title which implies something like the Gary Larson cartoon above.

The guy was in a bar, yet he knew there was a bomb squad a few blocks away?

maybe it was on the tv in the bar, or this guy just has really bad timing

Christ what an asshole!

That's assholes, but you should show more respect for law enforcement.
They carry guns.

I'm thinking he didn't know they were a block away doing what they were doing. Just bad timing.

Actually, I live in Iowa, and in some of the bars I go to, it's not uncommon to throw firecrackers IN the bar.
I think he showed great restraint.
