LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Louisville man was caught on camera doing donuts in the Churchill Downs infield.

According to an arrest slip, Benjamin Bratcher, 37, is an employee of a company doing construction work at Churchill Downs. On March 31, around 2:30 p.m., a Churchill Downs employee saw Bratcher driving his Mustang through the infield.

Bratcher tore the ground up and caused over $1,000 in damage to the grass. He admitted to an officer that he was driving his car and did not believe he caused that much damage.

Bratcher is charged with criminal mischief.
