SYRACUSE, N.Y. — The eight-year-old child involved in a now-viral video involving Syracuse police has been issued an appearance ticket for stealing another child's bike, less than a week after his interaction with police was seen across the nation.
Syracuse police confirmed the incident happened Thursday evening just before 7 on Grumbach Avenue in Syracuse. Police tell us he was given a juvenile appearance ticket for petit larceny.
This is the same child at the center of a national conversation after someone recorded a video of police detaining him over a bag of stolen chips on Sunday, April 17. While the video says the child was arrested on Sunday, the police body camera video shows the child was brought home and police spoke with his father. No charges were filed.
The woman who filed the complaint in Thursday evening's case told police her child was pushed off his bike.
