The Idaho Statesman reported regularly on those who got arrested for trying.

Images of holiday revelers shooting off personal fireworks have been immortalized in several videos. One drew national attention: The New York Post last year recut footage shot by filmmaker Adam Nawrot. Nawrot apparently objected to the way the Post treated the video, telling Boise State Public Radio he found it “disgusting.”
