Jonathan Harrington, 33, is now charged with vandalism, after police say he urinated on a Metro Nashville Police Officer’s private vehicle, and smashed the back window with a stone. Harrington had an interaction with another Metro Officer earlier in the day.
MNPD Officer John R Anderson went to his personal truck at 6:30 a.m. Wednesday morning as his shift at Central Precinct was ending. He immediately noticed the back window of his vehicle was smashed, and reviewed the security video.
Police say between 12:00 – 12:19 a.m., Jonathan Harrington is observed on video approaching the MNPD Central Precinct on a scooter, and entering the side lot where Officer Anderson’s truck was parked. Harrington is seen picking up a stone and throwing it at the rear glass of the truck, then urinates on the rear bumper of the vehicle. Damage is reported to be in excess of $500.
Harrington was charged with Vandalism, and is held on a $2,000 bond. He was free on pre-trial release on a criminal trespass charge just hours earlier, at the time of the incident.
