The man accused of throwing a fish on the porch of Astoria's famous "Goonies" house - shortly before stealing a boat and then having to be rescued after it sunk - has been charged with a misdemeanor for that particular crime.
Jericho Labonte was handed a single charge of Criminal Mischief in the Third Degree on May 2 for "unlawfully and knowingly tamper[ing] or interfere[ing] with the property of Behman Zakeri."
The property is the house, a famous landmark in Astoria after it was used as the home of the main character in cult-classfic 80s movie "The Goonies."
On February 1, 2023, Labonte was reported to police for leaving a large dead fish on the porch of the "Goonies" house and then "dancing around the property."
Two days later, Labonte is accused of stealing a boat from Astoria Port and then driving it out to sea, where the boat quickly capsized due to the stormy waves. Labonte had to be rescued by a Coast Guard diver and helicopter team.
He was charged with first-degree theft, second-degree criminal mischief, unauthorized use of a vehicle, and reckless endangering another person for that particular incident. He is being tried separately for the fish incident
