J.R. Tucker Vandalism Suspect Arrested

Posted: Updated:

Henrico, VA—Police have arrested and charged a 24-year-old man in connection with the vandalism of J. R. Tucker High School's football field.

On Saturday, September 29 at approximately 3:00 AM, officers responded to a call for service from the high school. Someone had driven donuts into the football field with a vehicle, sometime after the previous Friday evening's football game.

A truck in the area was located by police, and the driver, 24-year-old William M. Carter of Powhatan, was arrested for Driving Under the Influence. Carter was also charged with trespassing on school property.

School officials say it will cost about $1,353 to repair the field.

A similar vandalism incident occurred October 3 at Thomas Jefferson High School in Richmond. The school's newly-aerated football field was marred by donuts, causing $800 in damage.
