19-year-old charged after joyride through farmer’s cornfield
STARKS, Maine (AP) — Maine State Police say a 19-year-old’s joyride in a cornfield has led to a felony charge.
Troopers charged Kristoffer Welch, of New Sharon, on Thursday with aggravated criminal mischief after he allegedly took his truck onto a farmer’s field and spun the wheels.
The crop damage was estimated to be $5,000.
Troopers launched an investigation after receiving reports of a video posted to social media showing a Ford truck tearing up a field.
Welch was being held Friday on $7,500 bail at the Somerset County Jail. It was not known if he had a lawyer.
