Chief to Recommend Charges Against Florida Teens Who Recorded Drowning
FLORIDA -- Five teenagers who taunted a drowning man while recording his death from afar may face criminal charges, a Florida police chief said Friday. Cocoa Police Chief Michael Cantaloupe said Friday he will recommend the state attorney prosecute the teens under a statute that requires a person with knowledge of a death to notify a medical examiner. The state attorney will decide whether to file the charges, which would be a misdemeanor under that statute.
