TRUMBULL, Conn. (AP) - A Southbury man is facing criminal mischief charges, accused of slashing the tires of a car whose driver beat him to a parking space at the Westfield Trumbull mall.
      Forty-seven-year-old James Meeks was arrested Friday and released after posting bond for an incident that occurred the day after Christmas.
      Trumbull police say a woman was pulling her car into a parking space when she noticed that a Honda sedan had also been waiting to pull into the space.
      Police say the woman told them that when she got out of her car the other driver gave her a very agitated look.
      Police say a security camera shows Meeks bending down by the woman's rear tires and puncturing them with a sharp object before driving off.
