TikTok prankster Mizzy has been arrested on suspicion of breaching a criminal behaviour order just days after appearing in court for entering a stranger’s home uninvited.
The 18-year-old, real name Bacari-Bronze O’Garro, was detained by the Met Police on Friday morning and has been taken into custody for questioning.
A video was posted to Mizzy’s Twitter account showing the arrest with the caption: “Mizzy just got arrested”. The arrest took place on the roof of a building behind an Iceland grocery shop.
Mizzy went viral when he entered a stranger’s house without their consent, for which he was also arrested.
He posted a video of himself entering the London home as a “prank” two weeks ago.
The clip was met with shock and anger, with many online calling for him to be arrested.
The self-described content creator – who was previously arrested over clips that appeared to show him harassing Jewish people – has said the negative reaction to his videos is partly down to him being Black.
In one home entry video, the 18-year-old appears with two friends, saying: “Walking into random houses, let’s go.”
He is then seen going through a front door that has been left open and startling the woman on its patio.
Once inside the home he lounges on a sofa before finally being asked to leave by a man who appears in the living room, as children are heard calling “daddy”.
Mizzy confirmed he has previously been arrested after sharing a number of videos that seemed to show him harassing Jewish people.
In one, he appears to put his hands on the victim’s shoulders and attempts to leapfrog over him.
He claimed this was a TikTok trend “where you leapfrog over someone when the beat drops” and he has done this “to many different types of people”.
In an interview with The Independent, Mizzy defended his actions and said he cares less about whether he is receiving love or hate, as it is all about getting engagement and “it’s the fact that people are talking that’s important”.
