Wildlife officials have warned the teenager who put a baby grand piano on a Miami sandbar that he must remove it within 24 hours.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Jorge Pino said Thursday that 16-year-old Nicholas Harrington and his parents could face felony dumping charges if the piano isn't removed. Pino says an officer has warned the family.
On Jan. 2, Harrington, his older brother Andrew and two neighbors lifted the instrument, which had been trashed during a holiday party, onto the family's boat and took it out on Biscayne Bay. There, they left it on the highest spot along a sandbar.
Pino says officials know that the teen was trying to express his artistic side, but he says the teen should have gotten the correct permits.
