SPRINGWATER — A Springwater man was arrested on felony criminal mischief charges after allegedly ramming a vehicle with his demolition derby car, Livingston County Sheriff Thomas J. Dougherty reported Monday following an investigation by the Sheriff’s Office.

On June 20, Sheriff’s Deputies responded to an address on East Avenue in the Town of Springwater to investigate the intentional damage of property.

It is alleged that Stanley L. Payne Jr., 34, became upset that a vehicle was parked in front of his house and that the vehicle was partially on his lawn. Payne then drove his demolition derby car into the side of the vehicle that was parked in front of his house, causing significant damage to the parked vehicle.

Payne was arrested and charged with third-degree felony criminal mischief.

Payne was turned over to Central Booking Deputies at the Livingston County Jail for processing and pre-arraignment detention. The District Attorney’s Office was contacted in regards to bail due to the felony level charge. It was recommended that Payne be held on $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond.

Payne was later arraigned at the Livingston County Centralized Arraignment Part (LC-CAP) at the Livingston County Jail before Town of Avon Justice Michael Torregiano. The Judge did remand Payne to the custody of the Sheriff on the recommended bail of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond.

The investigation was handled by Deputy Jerry Pilkenton and Deputy Michael Wade of the Patrol Division.
