Michael OlsonA Jefferson man damaged a patrol vehicle and faces several charges from a Tuesday night incident.

Police Chief Mark Clouse says just before 8pm, officers received an anonymous call about a possibly intoxicated male leaving Hy-Vee. Officers stopped the individual in the 400 block of North Chestnut Street. Fifty-five year-old Michael Allen Olson admitted that he had been drinking and for his own safety, the officers arrested him and charged him with a simple misdemeanor for public intoxication.

As Olson was being brought to the law enforcement center, he kicked the back door and window of the patrol vehicle, causing damage to the door. As officers tried to get him out of the patrol vehicle, Olson became combative and non-compliant, so he had to be restrained. He was then further charged with a Class D Felony for second degree criminal mischief and a simple misdemeanor for interference with official acts.

Olson was booked into the Greene County jail.
