A troubled young man from New Jersey has just been arrested for vandalizing Trump’s beloved Bedminster golf club.
Richard McEwan drove his car onto Trump’s golf course’s greens and proceeded to do donuts tearing them up and causing serious damage.
He used his car to vandalize Trump’s property twice before he was arrested. He caused at least $17,000 in damages.
It is not easy to repair greens – they don’t even let you drive golf carts on the things – so the cost is sure to go up. The Trump organization wants McEwan prosecuted.
From The Washington Post:
A 26-year-old New Jersey man has been charged with criminal mischief for allegedly driving his car onto President Trump’s golf course in Bedminster, N.J., and doing “doughnuts” on the greens.
Richard J. McEwan was arrested late Monday at his home in Milford, N.J., the Somerset County Prosecutor’s Office said.
Police said he drove onto Trump’s course twice in the past week, driving in circles on two different greens and causing at least $17,000 in damage.
The latest incident happened Sunday afternoon: A witness reported seeing a blue Ford sedan with a Rutgers University sticker driving on the 13th green of one course. Police said the witness got a partial look at the car’s license plate, and that led them to McEwan.
Prosecutors said Tuesday that McEwan had been released and would return for a future court date.
A Trump Organization spokesman said that McEwan should be “prosecuted to the full extent of the law.”
