Just two days after appearing in court, a teenager who was given a criminal behavior order (CBO) and fined hundreds of pounds for breaking into a house as part of a TikTok “prank” was taken into custody.
In her appearance on Wednesday at Thames Magistrates’ Court, Bacari-Bronze O’Garro, 18, also known as Mizzy, of Manor Road in Hackney, north London, accepted one count of disobeying a community protection notice that had been issued on May 11 2022.
He received a two-year criminal behavior order from Judge Charlotte Crangle, which included the prohibitions against trespassing onto private property, posting videos directly or indirectly to social media without the documented consent of the subjects of the content, and going to the Westfield Centre in Stratford, east London.
O’Garro was also required to pay a victim surcharge of £80, a fine of £200, and £85 in costs, for a total of £365.
O’Gorro was apprehended by a plain-clothes policeman in a video that was uploaded on Twitter on Friday, making reference to two other recordings that were uploaded to social media on Wednesday and Thursday.
On Friday, the Metropolitan Police said that an arrest had been made.
An officer was detained on Friday, May 26, on suspicion of violating a criminal behavior order, according to a force spokesperson.
“He has been taken into custody. Enquiries are ongoing.”
The teen remarked, “I wouldn’t call it terrorizing, I would more call it having fun,” on Piers Morgan Uncensored on TalkTV.
“But let me get this out of the way first, I apologise. You see this situation that blew up on the internet, like walking into random houses, the next day I apologised because I felt bad.”
On May 15, this year, O’Garro entered a home, violating the community protection notice, according to the prosecutor, Varinder Hayre, who spoke in court on Wednesday.
“It was discovered that he had filmed the entire incident for a TikTok trend about walking into random houses,” she said.
“He has caused the family a lot of distress.
“The faces of the couple and their two young children can be seen.”
O’Garro, according to Lee Sergent, had expressed regret to the family, in mitigation.
He said that his client had created some respectable social media content, such as playing games and talking about conspiracies.
