A 25-year-old man suspected of using his Toyota pickup to gouge deep ruts in the lawn of Brookhaven Park was taken into custody and could face a year in jail, authorities said.
Timothy Jeffers, of Cerritos, was arrested about 8:15 p.m. Saturday at the park, 13100 Brookhaven St., according to Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. Jeff Deedrick.
According to the lieutenant, the suspect was doing figure eights on the lawn and was caught in the act by a patrol deputy.
"It was a mindless, foolish act," the lieutenant told Patch.
The damage was estimated at $6,000 and the suspect will most likely be charged if he is convicted, Deedrick told Patch.
