On Thursday, a Lamar County jury convicted John Alfred Petersen of criminal mischief $2,500-$30,000 in a trial before Judge Bill Harris of the County Court-at-Law, according to First Assistant District Attorney Benjamin I. Kaminar.

“The defendant used his motorized wheelchair to repeatedly ram a car waiting in the pickup line at Crockett Intermediate School, causing over $3000 worth of damage,” Kaminar said. “Other parents attempted to intervene and one recorded the incident on her cell phone.”
