Police charged three for allegedly causing damage to several parked vehicles early Wednesday morning.

John O’Rourke, 21, and Gabriel Harris, 21, both of 922 E. Washington St., and Kevin O’Rourke, 21, 612 E. Court St., were charged with second-degree criminal mischief.

According to police, the three intoxicated males were walking back to a residence from a downtown bar when Kevin O’Rourke jumped onto at least 10 parked cars.

He allegedly stood and lay on the hoods of the cars, where shoe and shirt prints were found along with scratches and dents, police said.

John O’Rourke allegedly admitted to “lying down” on a vehicle because he thought it was funny, while Harris reportedly said he was in the area of the incidents as he walked home from the bars.

Tread patterns matching the sandals Harris was wearing were found on a vehicle, police reports show.

Independent witnesses observed the trio and were later able to identify the suspects, police said. Tread patterns matching the groups’ sandals were reportedly found as well.

Second-degree criminal mischief is a Class D felony generally punishable by up to five years in prison and a maximum fine of $7,500.
