Five teens from four towns snagged $681 citations for damage to property after police say they egged oncoming cars traveling along Lake Drive.
A 51-year-old Fox Point man called Bayside police just after 10 p.m. Saturday to report that his car had just been egged — and he knew exactly who had done it.
He said as he was driving down North Fairway Circle when a car passed and someone inside threw an egg at his car. He told police he turned around and saw that same car pull into a driveway and quickly take off the other way, at 50 to 60 mph. He gave the license plate to police, along with the car’s make and model, the police report said. Officers took pictures of the damage caused by the eggs and recovered two empty cartons of eggs from the side of the road.
Police traced the license plate the man provided and to a car and address in Bayside. Police went to the home and asked the owner if there were any juveniles in the house. They said yes, and had five boys come up from the basement: two 16-year-olds from Wauwatosa, a 16-year-old from Menomonee Falls, a 17-year-old from Bayside and a 16-year-old from Brookfield. They admitted to throwing the eggs at the car and several other vehicles and driveways along North Lake Drive from Fox Point north to Bayside, the report said.
The victim said he didn’t have any lasting damage to his car so he didn’t feel the need to press charges.
All five boys were cited for damage to property, a $681 fine.
