A Cedar Falls man has been accused of damaging a person’s bedroom.

Tanner Cooke, 22, was charged Sept. 8 with third-degree criminal mischief. 

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Cooke stayed at the person’s house for the weekend.

The two went downtown and returned in the early morning hours of Sept. 8. 

Cooke was sleeping in the person’s bedroom, and the person was on the couch in the living room. Cooke proceeded to destroy numerous items in the bedroom.

Witnesses stated they heard loud noises and banging coming from the bedroom and saw Cooke in the bedroom after the damage had occurred.

He allegedly told witnesses he would pay for the damage, but he did not remember causing it. 

The damage costs are approximately $864.

Third-degree criminal mischief is an aggravated misdemeanor.
