Greg Stover, 45, was charged with three counts of destruction of property.

The police cruisers were parked along Goshorn Street in Charleston at around 7 p.m. near the department headquarters. A deputy walked outside and noticed the damage.

The sheriff’s department reviewed surveillance video that eventually led to a vehicle that Charleston Police pulled over on Piedmont Road.

Stover was allegedly driving the vehicle with a juvenile passenger when police found a BB gun in the car.

Mike Rutherford, chief Deputy, said it was anti-law enforcement situation.

“More than anything, he just doesn’t like police,” said Rutherford, “He just happened to be driving by the wrong place and doing the wrong thing at the wrong time.”

Rutherford said it was an unusual incident.

“I’ve been with the sheriff’s office for over 36 years and I’ve never seen this happen,” he said.
