A teen was arrested after setting off fireworks atop a train car at the Lady Lake Historical Society Museum.
Lady Lake police officers were at Wawa on U.S. Hwy. 27/441 when they were alerted at about 11 p.m. Sunday to two individuals setting off fireworks on top of the historic railroad train near the Lady Lake Chamber of Commerce at Log Cabin Park. Police spotted two individuals setting off fountain-style fireworks on top of one of the railroad cars. One of the individuals was videoing the other attempting to “punch” the flames, according to an arrest report from the Lady Lake Police Department.
The fireworks set off several explosions and one of the two individuals nearly fell from the train car. The pair were ordered down from the train.
One of the individuals, 18-year-old Atticus Kai Matson-Moynihan of Fruitland Park, had bulges in his pockets and was asked to empty them. Among the items in his pockets was as vape pen with a vial. Matson-Moynihan admitted he did not have a Medical Marijuana card.
The Arizona native was arrested on a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance. He was booked at the Lake County Jail and released after posting $2,000 bond. He has also been banned from the grounds of the Lady Lake Chamber of Commerce.
