Watercooler Talk
CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (AP) — Police said they’ve arrested a teenager who caused thousands of dollars in damage to a western New York home’s hardwood floor by break dancing on it while wearing a large diamond belt buckle.

Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard said the 18-year-old apparently was intoxicated when he arrived at a house party held by the victim’s daughters in Elma, a small town just east of Buffalo.

He said when the teen repeatedly tried to break dance he gouged the floor and caused about $3,000 worth of damage.

The teen faces a felony criminal mischief charge and a misdemeanor trespassing charge.
