A Villages High School alum with a troubled history has been charged with slashing the tires of woman’s sport utility vehicle.
Nathan Michael Hearns, 33, of Oxford, was arrested Monday on a felony charge of criminal mischief.
He allegedly used a kitchen knife to slash all four tires of a woman’s GMC Arcadia which was parked in her driveway, according to an arrest report from the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office. Hearns also used the knife to deflate the tires of a trailer parked near the woman’s home. A hedge trimmer was used to damage the body of the trailer.
Hearns was arrested when he was found walking along County Road 227.
As a result of Monday’s arrest, Hearns was being held without bond at the Sumter County Detention Center.
