Vandals damage school baseball field

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A Valley View baseball coach is crying foul after vandals tore up the district's baseball field.

Coach Josh Allison reported to the Jonesboro Police Department that someone did doughnuts on the school district's baseball field, 2131 Valley View Dr., leaving behind deep ruts.

Allison, according to the initial incident report, said surveillance video showed the damage occurred at 9:34 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 2.

The video showed what appeared to be a Jeep Wrangler driving in circles and sliding around on the field.

Allison was not sure of the exact dollar amount of the damage, estimating it at $500. He did state the school had just spent $1,000 on grass seed, spraying and labor a week prior to the incident.

There are no known suspects at this time.
