Authorities have accused an Illinois man of spray-painting various trash receptacles and cars.

Brian Maigler, 18, was charged with second-degree criminal mischief on Sept. 27.

According to online court documents, Maigler was seen by an off-duty Iowa City police officer spray painting Dumpsters in the alley to the east of the 400 block of South Johnson.

Maigler was also seen spray-painting three vehicles that did not belong to him.

Once a uniformed officer tried to approach him, Maigler ran away but was later caught. He smelled strongly of alcohol and blew a .216.

The damage Maigler caused is estimated to be about $10,000.

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