The following is FALSE! There have been ZERO true accounts!
Please keep all windows rolled up when stopped at traffic lights, as
only cars with windows down are being targeted. Groups of teenagers have
been caught, in alarming numbers, playing a new and dangerous game
called SPUNKBALL. Spunkball consists of a group of teens in a car
pulling up to a stoplight, and looking around for a car stopped near by
with an open window. When one is spotted, the teens shout, "SPUNKBALL",
and throw a gasoline soaked rag that has been wrapped in aluminum foil
through the open window. On the outside of the foil attached a small
firecracker, with the fuse lit. When the firecracker explodes, it shreds
the foil, and the rag is ignited causing a large flame that may catch
the interior of the car on fire.
this is UNTRUE!
