It looks to me like the reason his right arm was extended far enough to puncture the painting was
so that he wouldn't spill the drink that he shouldn't have been allowed to have in the first place. Consider

Yeah, I don't think the kid did it on purpose, then I'd have rage. I just have contempt for anyone who is so careless around things like priceless art or anything expensive that doesn't belong to them.

And the "make him volunteer for a weekend" pisses me off too. The kid damaged a 350 year old painting. If that were my kid, he'd be there every weekend until he turned 18. Again, why I should never have kids. They'd hate me.

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

That's my thought too. I also think he would have had an easier time keeping his balance with both hands free.
