Teen Charged With Vandalism
A teenager, who was apparently trying to catch up to his friends, is facing vandalism charges today after he jumped onto and over a car, damaging its windshield. The incident happened on Friday night near Cookeville Regional Medical Center. Police say a hospital security guard witnessed the incident and caught up to the boys, who were attending a basketball camp at Tennessee Tech. The 16-year-old, who is from Clay, Kentucky, was cited to juvenile court after officer Michael Herrick inspected the car and found footprints matching the suspect's on the hood, roof and trunk of the damaged vehicle.
