ORRINGTON, Maine — Officials are investigating vandalism of the junior high baseball field at the Center Drive School in Orrington.

James Stoneton, superintendent of Alternative Organizational Structure 47, said Friday that somebody drove a vehicle onto the outfield grass and “proceeded to do donuts over it.”

Sgt. Jon Carson of the Penobscot County Sheriff’s Office said the alleged vandalism is suspected to have occurred around 3 a.m. Friday.

“We have some leads, and we’re following up on those right now,” Carson said.

Stoneton said the vandals ripped up a fair amount of grass in the outfield. The superintendent did not have a price for the amount of damage.

The town’s Little League field, also located at Center Drive School, was not affected.

“We’re just looking into what happened and why, and we’re hoping we can figure it out and resolve it,” Stoneton said.

Carson said it’s not clear how many suspects were involved, and he did not disclose what type of vehicle it was. Police have surveillance footage of the incident.

Anyone with information on the incident should call Deputy Steve Boyd at 945-4636.
