A thrown bottle that caused a slew of damage to a Long Valley resident’s car resulted in a criminal mischief charge this week, police said.
A man was driving his vehicle north on Naughright Road near Cindy Lane on Sept. 1 just after 6 p.m., Lt. Art Adams said. An investigation showed a “large” bottle was thrown into the roadway, striking the man's windshield and causing more than $750 in damage, Adams said.
Two weeks later, on Sunday, Sept. 15, James Cornish, 24, of Long Valley, turned himself in at police headquarters and admitted throwing the bottle, Adams said.
Because damage was in excess of $750, the violation was a fourth-degree crime. Cornish was charged with criminal mischief.
