Midland City police have arrested one man responsible for the Dale County High School football field vandalism.

Eighteen-year-old Douglas Quincy of Midland City arrested and charged with one count of second degree criminal trespassing and one count of 1st degree criminal mischief which is actually a class C felony.

He was sent to the Dale County Jail and is being held without bond.

Saturday morning, Coach Drew Danner was the first to discover the torn up field and immediately called police.

Midland City Police Chief Dexter Hammond interviewed Quincy and says that this act of vandalism was not out of disrespect toward Coach Horne.

Chief Hammond said that Quincy did consume alcohol prior to committing the crime.

"After the funeral they just left the gate unlocked, so it was not a forceful entry. They drove in along the side parking lot, did donuts and drove onto the field and destroyed the football field," said officer Brian King

Out of respect for Mrs. Horne, who was reportedly upset by this incident, the coaches did not want to comment.

Repair could cost 3 to 5 thousand dollars.

Police are asking residents help in finding the other people involved the vandalism.

They are looking for 18 year old Justin Robert McCord of Newton. He is a white male, 160 lbs with brown hair and brown eyes.

If you have any information about his whereabouts, you are asked to contact Midland City police at 983-3591
