Steven Scaminaci, 50, of 56 Risley Road, was charged with disorderly conduct and two counts of risk of injury to a minor Wednesday afternoon after allegedly throwing a burning cigarette at his sister's 15-year-old child, according to police.
The incident took place at his sister's Pope Street home when he felt he was being laughed at by two 15-year-olds, police said. The burning cigarette hit one of the teens in the forehead and it fell into the lap of the other, according to police.
He was released on a promise to appear to appear Thursday in Brideport Superior Court.
