A man arrested twice in one hour early July 21 was arraigned in village court Wednesday.
According to NorthCountryNow.com, village police report Lance C. Harbart, 26, was arraigned on four felony counts of third degree criminal mischief, and several misdemeanor charges: seven counts of making graffiti and three counts of fourth degree criminal mischief.
These charges stem from alleged incidents in the village of Potsdam, where Harbart was said to have thrown a computer printer into Market Street near town offices. This resulted in his arrest for obstructing traffic, and was arrested again later for allegedly injuring a woman after he hit her in the face, again on Market Street.
These incidents took place hours before Harbart went on a graffiti spree. Victims within the village included the village post office, FedEx, UPS, Verizon, the Watertown Daily Times, the building at 22-24 Market St., and a building at 6 Depot St.
The official estimate of the damage is reported at $7,312.
