Too bad one of the vehicles owners didn't grab him and beat him severely.

Are names released when arrests are made, or only after an arraignment? Would appreciate clarification on how the process works with regard to publishing names and photos. Thanks.

This comment will probably get removed, but what the heck is up with manitou beach? That town is producing a lot of hoodlums per capita lately.

Thanks for the map: there's a Church Street in Dixboro Village, too, and I imagined he chose a church parking lot in the village for his trampling.
