Man celebrates baby’s birth with fireworks, burns 5 cars, property


Dubai Police arrested a young Arab man who celebrated the arrival of his newborn baby with crackers and fireworks — and ended up causing considerable damage to his neighbours’ property in the process.

According to a report in Al Khaleej, the festive occasion soon turned sour when things got out of control and the new dad ended up burning five cars.

The celebrations gone awry also inflicted material losses on a few of his neighbours — including the facades of six houses.

Brigadier General Abdul Halim Al Hashimi, Director of Al Qusais Police Station, stated that the centre responded to a report of an explosion in the Oud Al-Muteena area, and immediately moved to the area after alerting the ambulance and the civil defence services.

Police controlled the explosion and arrested the young man as well as two of his friends who hid the crackers after causing the damage.—Agencies
