MIDLAND CITY, AL (WSFA) - There is more bad news for students and teachers at Dale County High School. One week after losing their football coach in a fatal accident they find their football and baseball fields destroyed.

Now, two suspects are under arrest and charged with 2nd degree criminal trespassing and 1st degree criminal mischief.

Midland City Chief of Police Dexter Hammond tells WSFA 12 News 18-year-old Douglas Quincy and an unidentified 16-year-old went on a joy ride through the school's football and baseball fields sometime Friday night.

The two suspects apparently drove around doing doughnuts on the grass and playing fields causing around $5,000 in damage.

Investigators say Quincy was intoxicated at the time of his arrest.

Officials say the crime was not related to last week's death of Dale County High's football coach Todd Horne, however. Horne was killed and several others were injured when the vehicle they were riding in flipped several times.

Quincy is in the Dale County Detention Facility under no bond while the 16-year old is being held at the Juvenile Detention Center.
