A North Liberty man has been accused of damaging the roof of a car.

Bud Kauffman, 29, was charged on Dec. 29 with second-degree criminal mischief.

According to a North Liberty police complaint, Kauffman allegedly intentionally damaged the unoccupied vehicle by running up over the hood and stomping on the roof of the passenger compartment. The damage exceeded $1,000 but did not exceed $10,000 the complaint said.

An investigating officer photographed and collected a palm print from the hood of the vehicle. The palm print was sent to the Division of Criminal Invesigations crime lab along with Kauffman’s comparison prints. The report states that the print photographed on the hood of the vehicle and the Kauffman’s palm print were the same, the complaint said.

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