The fireworks were going off in close proximity to several homes. The Officer walked to the rear access alley leading to the residence where the fireworks were being set off and saw a man, Geraldo J. Maldonado, Jr. who is known to the Officer. Maldonado said that he was sorry and that he did not think the fireworks display would be that big. The Officer notified Maldonado that he would be cited for Disorderly Conduct. Note: All parties are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
