On Friday, the media reported that an unknown object had been thrown and struck a vehicle in President Trump’s motorcade while traveling in West Palm Beach, Florida.
It now turns out that a boy from a local middle school, along with four of his friends, was the culprit.
At about 1:45 p.m. on Friday, a Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office press release was issued that read: “While assisting the United States Secret Service with a motorcade movement for President Donald Trump it was reported that a vehicle in the motorcade had been struck by what was believed to be a small hard object. The incident was reported to have taken place on Southern Boulevard between Parker Avenue and Lake Avenue.”
The motorcade had been traveling from Palm Beach International Airport when the incident took place close to President Trump’s estate. There were also groups of demonstrators on street corners at the time of the incident.
Local authorities and members of the motorcade returned to the scene later to look for witnesses and objects along the roadway.
According to CNN, “A wooden chunk and a baseball-sized rock were taken and placed in bags by a sheriff’s office crime scene unit.”
The Florida sheriff’s office investigated and determined that the motorcade vehicle was struck by a 2×4 piece of wood thrown by a middle school-aged boy accompanied by four other friends.
According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, the unnamed boy has admitted throwing the piece of wood. He and his friends will face charges from the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office.
