No injuries or damage were reported.

State Police said Hines’ actions did not appear to pose a threat to any flights in and out of Logan.

When Hines was placed under arrest, troopers said they seized a large bag of fireworks, which are prohibited by state law.

In addition to already having an active warrant for his arrest, Hines was charged with unlawful possession of fireworks, and two equipment violations for his boat.
