The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office has charged a Lincolnton man with damaging two patrol cars and resisting arrest.
Deputies said they were called to a residence on Beaver Dam Lane in Lincolnton on Monday around 6:30 p.m. to investigate an incident in which a man was damaging property.
They found Davon Malcom Woodard, 21, of 3079 Beaver Dam Lane, at the scene, and witnessed him throw a rock through the front window of a home, a press release said.
Woodard approached the officers and threatened them as he was placed in handcuffs. Deputies said he spit in an officer’s face while being apprehended and, after being placed in the back of a patrol car, kicked out the vehicle’s rear passenger side window.
He was removed from the vehicle, given time to calm down and was placed in the front seat of another patrol car. He head-butted and broke the windshield of that car, deputies said.
Woodard was taken to the CMC-Lincoln emergency room to be examined. While there, he head-butted the wall in a nurse’s station, damaging the dry wall.
Deputies said they estimate the damage to the vehicle windows at $600, the home window at $700 and the hospital wall at $500.
Woodard was charged with two counts of malicious conduct by a prisoner, four misdemeanor counts of injury to real property, four misdemeanor counts of communicating threats, two misdemeanor counts of resist, delay and obstruct a public officer, two counts of damage to local government property and one count of assault on a government official.
He was placed in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $21,000 secured bond.
