A teenager posted an image of an airsoft toy gun on his social media account, and the police responded by arresting him.
In a press release by the Park Ridge Police Department, they indicate that they received phone calls on Tuesday evening from concerned parents who had seen a post on social media with a teen posing with what looked like a gun.
The teen was Mustafa Obaid, an eighteen-year-old who allegedly posted a photo of himself with the airsoft toy gun.
Obaid was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct for posting a photo of the toy gun to SnapChat.
“The swift success in locating and arresting Obaid is due to the timely information provided by numerous concerned teens and adults, as well as the cooperation between the Park Ridge Police Department and the Cook County Sheriff’s Police.”
