Four James City County teens face a series of misdemeanor charges following incidents that occurred over Aug. 5 and 6 in the Ford’s Colony subdivision.
Antonio Minichiello of Branscome Boulevard in James City County, who recently turned 18, was the only adult charged. The other boys, a pair of 15 year-olds and a 16 year-old, were charged as juveniles with several counts of destruction of property, assault and battery, and one count of illegal possession of fireworks, which is a county ordinance.
JCC Police Spokesman Michael Spearman said two of the juveniles reside in Ford’s Colony and one lives in the Season’s Trace neighborhood.
The quartet is accused of splashing house paint on cars parked on Par Drive and on the steps of a home on Stoweflake.
The assault and battery charge stems from the group pulling up to a female jogger running on Edinburgh Drive around 5:30 a.m. Aug. 6, then throwing a “glob of mayonnaise” that hit her in the neck.
“They turned off their car lights as they approached, and the jogger was really scared,” said Spearman.
The James City County fire marshals office assisted with the investigation, Spearman said, but he would not elaborate.
