LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Louisville Metro Police have charged a man with deliberately driving his truck through a park causing damage to the ground.

An arrest warrant says Ian S. Ritchey, 24, caused the damage at Long Run Park early on the morning of February 7 when he drove across snow covered turf and became stuck in the mud.

A LMPD officer saw Ritchey and another person walking in the cold and covered in mud. When questioned, the pair admitted their truck was stuck. Another officer found the vehicle and evidence Ritchey had been doing donuts on the snow covered lawn. The damage is estimated at $1,835.

Ritchey was arrested on March 3 for criminal mischief.
