A 17-year-old Barron man is facing a misdemeanor charge of criminal damage to property after the windshield of an automobile was smashed in an incident on Monday, April 25, 2022, at a location on the north side of the city of Barron, county Circuit Court documents said.

The defendant is identified as Landon K. Brekke, 1427 14 1/2 Ave., Barron. A witness told police that the defendant had put a brick through the windshield of a car parked in a driveway at a 14 1/2 Avenue address shortly after 1 a.m. April 25.

An officer spoke with the defendant, who allegedly admitted throwing the brick because he was angry with the driver of the vehicle. Damages were estimated at $500.

Court records said the defendant is free on $500 signature bond pending a court appearance today, Wednesday, May 4. If convicted, he could be sentenced to up to nine months in jail and/or a $10,000 fine.
