Police: Man smashed window of downtown Johnson City brewery with rock

A Johnson City man was charged with felony vandalism and public intoxication early Wednesday morning after police say he broke the window of a downtown brewery.

Joshua Heft, 43, 141 E. Market St., was found nearby by city officers at the Johnson City Public Library after they responded to the Johnson City Brewing Company, where a front window was smashed at approximately 12:51 a.m.

A witness told officers he heard glass breaking, then looked toward the business and saw Heft in the immediate area. Police said Heft could not stand very well on his own and his speech was slurred.

The responding officers reported Heft threw a rock through the window, which was valued at more than $1,000.

He was arrested and transported to the Washington County Detention Center, where he was held in lieu of a $10,500 bond. He is scheduled for arraignment at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in Washington County General Sessions Court.
