Not content to get his water from a fountain like the rest of us (but still wanting to get it for free), one man stole bottled water from a 13-year-old on June 30th. The teen had been selling the water on Warren Street between Court and Smith streets in Brooklyn when the thief approached and told him, "Shut up—prepare for me to hit you." The teen suffered a beatdown, and the suspect, described as a black man in his 20s with a shaved head, absconded with the water. Hopefully, water thefts will go down with the introduction of new-fangled water stations around the city.
