Orlando & The Freakshow

Weekdays 6AM - 10AM

Clearwater police arrested two teenagers because they thought it was a good idea to shoot random people with pellets almost blinding one woman. Both teens were joining a dangerous TikTok challenge where you shoot unsuspecting people on the sidewalk with an Orbeez BB gun.

The two 18-year-olds Joashua Sanchez and Jacob Canaynay told police they were “just having fun” but one woman was nearly blinded with their dumb decision. She said it hurt so badly when the pellet hit her eye. She said it felt like a rock hit her at “full blast” making her drop to the ground.

Clearwater police said they were booked in the Pinellas County Jail. Apparently, there have been six similar incidents in the Tampa Bay in the last four months.
