These Youtube pranksters fall into trouble one day or another. A firecracker exploded at Dortmund’s Thier-Galerie shopping centre on Saturday, and apparently it was supposed to be a prank. But now the police are involved and it’s not looking so pretty.
The explosion which occurred on Saturday evening–December 15, in the center of the city, caused a lot of panic. Hundreds of visitors had to flee from the building. Also, about 30 people were reported to have suffered a shock and minor bruises. Good thing is, no one was directly harmed.
So far, five people have been apprehended for this, including the 17-year old Youtuber from Wolfsburg. Police reports state that the Youtuber (name withheld) allegedly paid and ordered his four counterparts to light fireworks while recording everything. These were underage people of ages 14 and 15, by the way. Other reports included that the teenagers resisted arrest and had to be tied up with force.

However, the role of the Youtuber was not known at first. It was only after two days of interrogations, that the four mentioned him.

The police have said that investigations are still ongoing. It is also unclear whether the five would pay for the crime or not. Whatever it is, we’d keep you updated 😉
