18-Year-Old Appears in Court Over Disturbing Social Media Footage
An 18-year-old man named Bacari-Bronze O’Garro, known as Mizzy on social media, is scheduled to appear in court after a video went viral showing him entering someone’s home without permission. He was arrested on Monday on suspicion of causing a public nuisance and has been charged with failing to comply with a Community Protection Notice.
Additional videos allegedly depict him harassing train passengers and falsely claiming someone’s car to be his Uber. Mr. O’Garro, who resides in Hackney, will appear before magistrates while in custody.
The charges stem from an investigation into various social media footage that featured unsolicited interactions with members of the public, both on the street and inside their homes.
Detective Chief Superintendent James Conway, responsible for policing Hackney and Tower Hamlets, emphasized the seriousness of the case, stating that the videos caused widespread upset, distress, and concern. He clarified that despite being labeled as “prank” videos, the investigation is being conducted diligently to understand the impact on the public.
In response to the extensive media and social media commentary surrounding the case, Mr. O’Garro’s arrest highlights the need to respect the judicial process and allow it to proceed appropriately.
