A Rockland County man was accused of damaging a car parked at Marist College.
On Sunday, the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department arrested a 21-year-old and charged with criminal mischief, a felony.
Police were contacted by Marist College Security who said they were detaining the man in the parking lot of 50 Fulton Street after he was allegedly caught causing damage to a parked vehicle.
He grabbed and twisted the driver's side exterior mirror from a 2006 Mercedez Benz E350 until it broke, causing over $250 worth of damage, according to Marist College Security.
He isn't a student at Marist. He was reportedly visiting the campus. It's unclear if he has a relationship with the owner of the Mercedez Benz.
He was remanded to Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $1,000 bail. The charge was later reduced to a disorderly conduct appearance ticket.
