    Too bad it was not fatal. Another loser kid without responsible parental supervision. What is the curfew for teenagers, underage, in Antioch?

    • Publisher says:

      If nothing has changed, then the curfew in Antioch is 10 p.m. Sunday night through Thursday night and 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights for teens under 18, with some exceptions such as traveling home from an organized event or being with an parent or other adult, I believe.
