Police say vandals used an SUV to tear up several sports fields at South Burlington high school.
The incident happened Saturday night around 9:30. Surveillance cameras caught this white SUV in the school's parking lot. Police say the driver did doughnuts around the athletic turf field and caused significant damage to the grass baseball and softballs fields.
The alleged joy ride ended in a flat tire, which the suspects and some friends then fixed in the parking lot before taking off. School officials say they're still assessing the damage but are worried rippled turf could injure student athletes.
"The danger is that underneath the materials have clumped together in one place and it could rip or people could trip on it during a game that kind of thing," said John Stewart, the school district's Business Manager.
Fixing the damage will likely cost several thousand dollars. The district is now considering adding additional fencing. If you recognize the vehicles -- call police.
