An 18-Year-Old boy was on Wednesday arrested for smashing a TV set after a football team he had placed a Sh200 bet on lost.

The teenager is reported to have smashed the 60-inch TV with a soda bottle during a Champions League game.

One of the area leaders, James Kabono, the young man was watching the match with his friends when the incident occurred.

“He got agitated when the opposing team scored and without any provocation threw the soda bottle at the TV breaking the screen,”said Kabono.

He added that the teen’s family were in negotiation with the tv owner and had agreed to pay for the shattered TV.

“The family has agreed to pay Sh50,000 for the damaged TV set so that their son can be set free,” he said.
