A University of Iowa student and former Daily Iowan employee was charged with damaging property and interference with official acts.

According to Iowa City and UI police complaints, Austin Chadderdon, 22, 308 N. Dubuque St., was charged April 3 with second-degree criminal mischief and two charges of interference with official acts causing injury.

On April 3, police officials reportedly discovered Chadderdon lying in the middle of a street. When officers approached, Chadderdon allegedly ran into his apartment and began destroying property and throwing it into the street, according to the report. The total cost to replace the property is estimated to be at least $1,400.

According to the reports, Chadderdon had to be assisted when being taken in a squad car and continued to kick and fight, resulting in several scrapes to an officer's arms.

Interference with official acts causing injury is considered an aggravated misdemeanor.

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