The Indiana State Police wishes everyone a safe Independence Day and reminds Hoosiers of the Indiana fireworks law.
A person who violates this law can be charged with a class “C” infraction. However, if a person recklessly, knowingly, or intentionally uses fireworks and the violation causes property damage, they can be charged with a class A misdemeanor. If there is bodily injury it is enhanced to a Level 6 felony, and if there is death a Level 5 felony.
All fireworks have the potential to be dangerous when used improperly. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission created the video below to remind everyone to put safety first.
