Mt. Juliet teen girls suspected in vandalism at another's home

MOUNT JULIET, TN (WSMV) -

What started as a prank could result in criminal charges for a group of Mt. Juliet girls.

Homeowner, Brian Snyder, has spent hours cleaning up spray paint that spelled inappropriate words on his garage door, driveway and walkway.

"Words you can't repeat. Words you don't want your kids using," Snyder said.

That is in addition to the ketchup and mustard splattered at his door.

"I didn't know mustard will eat paint. It will eat right through paint," he said.

All of it, Snyder and police say, was the result of teenage girls who had an issue with his daughter.

"All you did was destroy my property, and cause me to lose time at work," Snyder said.

It cost Snyder so much to clean it all up, he went to the police, and officials said criminal citations will be handed out to the suspected girls.

Snyder said there's a lesson here, too.

"I had to show my daughters that when something like this happens, you need to stand up. Don't back down to a bully," he said.

The girls will likely be charged with misdemeanor vandalism, according to Mt. Juliet police.
