By Aaron Gouveia
FALMOUTH â A 14-year-old boy was arrested yesterday after he pushed a senior citizen off a dock because he âthought it would be funny,â police said.
The North Falmouth teen â whose name was not released because he is a juvenile â was at Megansett Beach when the 2:20 p.m. incident occurred. Police said the boy ran up behind the 71-year-old victim, who was fishing off the dock with his grandson, and pushed him off the dock and into the ocean.
The man suffered lacerations to both knees and lost his prescription glasses, police said.
Although the boy fled into the woods by the Talk of the Town Diner, several people at the beach knew his identity and immediately called police.
Once arrested, the boy was allowed to make one phone call. Police said he chose to call a friend to âbrag and laughâ about what he had done. police said.
The boy was held on $1,000 cash bail and transferred to a secure facility in New Bedford. Police said he will be arraigned today in Falmouth District Court.

Now, I know the kid's only fourteen, and as the rule goes, his name can't be released for fear that... well... For fear that people like me will hunt down this little prick and do everything I can to make him regret every second of his fourteen years on this planet.
Even turning him into a cutter wouldn't be enough.
A cutter with an eating disorder still wouldn't do it.
Please release his name. I think the whole community of Falmouth should know who this little bastard is and where he lives. And, if his parents aren't beating him hard enough, let the rest of the town have a whack at him.
You could even make it part of the town festival. And then, everyone can brag to each other while this kid blubbers in the corner.
Now, I'm not a violent person, and I certainly don't condone beating a child, but every now and then a kid comes along who really challenges my notions on punishment for minors.
