LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) -- A 22-year-old has been arrested after authorities say he twice vandalized a deputy's patrol car while it was parked in front of the officer's home.
Polk County Sheriff's deputies said Matthew James Lash also burglarized another home in the neighborhood and left a note on the front door of both homes that read "The Joker is Here! Jokes on you Bitch."
Deputies investigating the burglary said they found Lash in the street acting erratically and carrying a rifle. He was ordered back home, but authorities said he later came back out with a box cutter.
He was arrested Friday and is being held without bond. Authorities said he admitted to the vandalism and burglaries, saying he had been drinking and doesn't hold any ill will toward the deputy.
