Bacari-Bronze O'Garro, better known as Mizzy, is an 18-year-old London resident and a popular TikToker. Mizzy has gained fame on social media for his daredevil pranks, which often involve entering private spaces without permission and grabbing items from unsuspecting members of the public.
In his latest video, he managed to cycle into a storeroom inside a Sainsbury’s supermarket, all while it was off-limits to customers. He has also posted videos of himself entering staff-only areas in popular fast-food chains, including McDonald’s and Greggs's.
Mizzy recently appeared on Piers Morgan's 'Talk TV 'show, where he was questioned, “What has been motivating you to terrorize the people around where you live?” The prankster responded, “I wouldn’t really call it terrorizing, I’ll just call it more having fun.”

This isn’t the first time that the young prankster has been in trouble with the authorities. Just recently, he appeared in court for failing to comply with a community protection notice, which was related to an incident where he trespassed on a stranger’s property on May 15.
Varinder Hayre from the prosecution told the court, “He went to the home address of the victim. The woman was cleaning the patio when he entered her home. Mr O’Garro walked into the property and walked down the stairs," as per Sunday World. She went on to explain the scenario, "He was stopped by the homeowner. Mr O’Garro went to the living room and sat on the sofa. He was asked to leave multiple times by both the victim and her husband. He ignored their request and carried on walking in their home address."
“The following day it turned out that he had filmed the whole incident. It had been circulated on social media. The victim was unaware that Mr O’Garro was recording the incident. He captured the faces of her husband and children. She strongly feels he put her family at risk,” concluded Ms Hayre.
Mizzy was slapped with a two-year criminal behavior order and faced a hefty fine of over $400. The criminal order dictated that he could not post any videos on social media without the documented consent of anyone featured, trespass on private property, or even step foot in the Westfield shopping center in Stratford, east London.
However, it was recently reported that Mizzy may not have taken this order seriously. Footage released on Friday showcased his dramatic arrest on a rooftop near an Iceland store in south-east London, allegedly breaching the terms of his court order.
