Jail officials said Kidder also had a warrant for driving with a suspended license, without vehicle insurance and registration.
Winemaker Jail Birdies
(Journal News, LoHud.com, New York)
Police didn’t do anything when Michael Benjamin Harbert informed a cop that “my cell phone is broken,” after he apparently smashed it to the sidewalk on Post Road about 3 a.m. Saturday.
But they arrested him a moment later, they said, when he threw a bottle at a storefront window, charging the 22-year-old Pacific Grove, Calif., man with a disorderly conduct violation.
Harbert wasn’t finished though, and neither were police.
At 4 a.m., a report notes, Harbert was handcuffed to a railing in the booking area at police headquarters when he reached down with his free hand and pulled the faceplate off of an electric socket, exposing the bare wires.
He was charged with fourth-degree criminal mischief, a misdemeanor, and placed in a holding cell.
Harbert was charged with a second mischief count less than an hour later, when police said he smashed a fluorescent light tube in the holding cell.
