Cookeville Teenager Cited For Vandalism

Vandalism charges have been filed against a young Cookeville man, who allegedly damaged some of the greens at Belle Acres Golf Course over the weekend. Police say 18-year-old Coy Daniel Jackson of White Cemetery Road was arrested after an investigation by Officer Jeremy Lintz. Lintz had taken the call at the golf course where the owner reported that someone stuck a surfboard into one of the greens and had also used that surfboard to scratch obscenities into the grass. According to the Lintz's report, the vandal also left several beer cans on the course. His investigation led him to question some new tenants at a home near the golf course. He says he noticed beer cans in that home similar to the ones on the golf course and says Jackson eventually confessed.
