OAKVILLE, Ont. — A teenage suspect is facing charges after video surfaced on social media of a male throwing a steel road sign from an overpass above the Queen Elizabeth Way west of Toronto.
Halton Region Police say that on Wednesday around 8 p.m. a teenager was captured on a "Snap Chat" video hurling a large steel construction sign off of the Winston Churchill Blvd. overpass.
Fortunately the sign landed in a grassy area between lanes and no one was injured.
Police called it a reckless criminal act and asked the public for assistance in identifying the person in the video.
Investigators say they soon received a flood of information and on Friday arrested and charged a suspect with mischief and common nuisance.
The suspect was released from custody after being issued a court date.
