An Iowa City man has been accused of damaging an ex-girlfriend’s car.

Garland Anderson Jr., 34, was charged Sept. 20 with second-degree criminal mischief.

According to a Johnson County sheriff’s complaint, Anderson went to his ex-girlfriend’s residence to make contact with her. When he could not do so, he allegedly walked away angrily and struck her car with his fist numerous times causing damage to the driver’s side of the car.

The woman is now unable to open her driver’s door enough to get inside, because of the damage, the complaint said. There was a witness to the event. The estimated damage on the car is $1,000.

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