Suspects in Capital High fields vandalism arrested by Boise P.D.

Capital football practices and games will have to be rescheduled because of the thousands of dollars worth of damage to the field.

BOISE, Idaho — Two men were arrested in connection to the vandalized fields at Capital High School Thursday, according to a press release from the Boise Police Department (BPD).

Kaden Tennant, 18, was arrested on two charges: a felony charge of malicious injury to property, and a misdemeanor charge of driving without privileges. Kaleb Lindberg, 18, was charged with a felony charge of malicious injury to property.

The two men caused thousands of dollars in damages to the football and softball fields, making them unusable.

BPD said at about 11:15 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 16, two vehicles -- a car and a pickup truck -- drove into the school's parking lot and onto the fields, where police say they drove recklessly. The vehicles are described as a light-colored late 1990s-model sedan and a dark-colored Chevrolet Avalanche or Honda Ridgeline.

Capital High School reported that the vandalism has left the football field "unplayable," and practices and games have to be rescheduled.

In a press release sent Thursday, Boise Police said: "We would like to thank the public for the many calls and tips that were sent to our department since yesterday."
