Gladewater, Texas (KETK) — Two juveniles were caught vandalizing several Gladewater football fields Saturday night.
According to Gladewater Superintendent Dr. J.P. Richardson, the juveniles damaged the middle and high school field and track in a truck. Richardson said they will be expected to pay back the district for any damages, which are still being assessed.
One juvenile is a student at Gladewater High School, and the second vandal is from another unnamed school district. Disciplinary action will be taken against the students.
Richardson said it appears both students were "just riding around" on the turf and practice field. A locked double gate was busted through to make entry.
