The boys used butane torches to burn holes in other students’ coveralls while they were wearing them in class to complete work projects. The males admitted to burning holes in each other’s coveralls as well as other students while they were wearing them, and a total of five coveralls were damaged. A misdemeanor citation for criminal damaging was given to both male students. Due to the incident creating a risk of physical harm to other persons, the charge is enhanced.
