A man was charged earlier this week after he allegedly headbutted a police car.

Rakeem Eberhart, 23, North Liberty, was charged Tuesday with second-degree criminal mischief.

According to a North Liberty police complaint, police arrested Eberhart for disorderly conduct. While in handcuffs standing next to a patrol car, he then allegedly headbutted the side of the car hard enough to knock himself unconscious.

The complaint said this left a dent in the side of the patrol car, which will require an entire side panel to be replaced. Damage is estimated at more than $1,000.

Second-degree criminal mischief is considered a Class-D felony.
