Evan-Amos via Wikimedia Creative Commons LicenseAll too many people are hurt simply through a lack of regard from another person. Reckless driving, leaving small objects in a place where someone might trip on them, wet floors without warning signs — these are all great potential for injury that could have been avoided by simply taking a few safe precautions or by following rules put in place to keep everyone safe.

A man was arrested after allegedly throwing a stapler out of a sixth floor apartment window. The stapler did not hit anyone, but falling glass from the incident caused injuries to two people, according to police.

A Pasadena police lieutenant stated the apartment overlooks a courtyard. Around 2 in the afternoon, according to the lieutenant, a man threw a stapler through a closed window, and it fell to the courtyard along with shards of broken glass.

Two people, a 39-year-old woman and a 34-year-old man, both from Costa Mesa were hit by glass in the courtyard, said the police lieutenant.

According to police, the woman’s right foot was cut, while the man suffered a minor cut on his neck. The stapler landed nearby.

A 50-year-old man was arrested on charges of assault with a deadly weapon and taken to the Inmate Reception Center in Los Angeles. His bail was set at $50,000.

Along with the emotional and physical difficulties that come with a personal injury, there are financial costs, in the form of medical bills, time taken away from work, and other expenses.
