Male Teen Arrested on Criminal Mischief Charge

(BEDFORD) – A Bedford Police officer issued a summons to a Bedford teen after he allegedly kicked out a taillight and punched a vehicle at Hamilton Courts Saturday.

According to Bedford Police Chief Terry Moore, the 16-year-old male was upset and kicked out the tail light of a vehicle.

The teen’s father called the police requesting help taking the boy to a hospital for a medical evaluation.

“While speaking to the teen, he became upset and punched the vehicle leaving a dent,” said Chief Moore. “At that point, the father requested to file charges.  Probation was contacted and requested the father sign a promise to appear and released the teen back into the father’s custody.”
