Windshield destruction results in citation, arrest for Riverton man

Jul 16, 2014 - By Katie Roenigk, Staff Writer

Jarett David, 20, of Riverton, was issued a citation for property destruction after he reportedly jumped on his ex-girlfriend's car and smashed her windshield on the Fourth of July.

He also was arrested on a warrant for failure to appear when he turned himself in July 7 at the Riverton Police Department.

The initial incident was reported at about 11:15 p.m. Friday. Officials said four people showed up at the RPD, 816 N. Federal Blvd., in a black 2011 Hyundai with a broken windshield.

"It was broken to the point you could not look out of it," RPD Capt. Eric Murphy said. "It was all shattered."

The group said they had been in the Kmart parking lot, 1960 N. Federal Blvd., when a white Ford F150 began circling their vehicle. David, who was driving the Ford, reportedly stopped directly in front of the Hyundai and jumped out of his truck and onto the hood of the car.

"He began hitting the front windshield of the vehicle with his fists and elbows," Murphy said.

David's ex-girlfriend reportedly was sitting in the front passenger seat; she called the police and said she was coming to the station because David was following them. Murphy guessed the damage to her windshield will cost about $500 to fix.


The two other passengers in the Hyundai --a 20-year-old Arapahoe woman and a 20-year-old Riverton woman --were issued citations for minor under the influence after police reportedly smelled alcohol emanating from their mouths.

"One of them could not stand without swaying," Murphy said.

The women were released to their own custody.
