MASON CITY | A Mason City man is accused of breaking windows at a rental property after getting into a fight with his mother.

Tyler Nicholas Thompson, 21, is charged with felony criminal mischief -- second degree.

About 3:55 p.m. March 13, Mason City police responded to reports of an out-of-control subject that was causing property damage in the 200 block of Seventh Street Northeast.

“When officers arrived they spoke to the caller who is the mom of the suspect, Tyler Thompson,” court documents said. “Officers learned that Tyler has been staying with his mom at this address which is a rental property.”

According to police, Thompson and his mother “got into a dispute.”

“Tyler became upset and broke the glass out of multiple windows to the house,” the criminal complaint said. “Tyler fled from the scene as officers were arriving.”

A police officer informed the property owner of the incident.

“They agreed with Tyler's mom to charge Tyler with the damage since he did not have permission to break the windows,” court documents said. “This also goes above and beyond standard wear an(d) tear on a house.”

The property owner's estimate to repair the windows is $1,738, court documents said. 

A statewide warrant for his arrest was issued March 15. Thompson was arrested and booked into the Cerro Gordo County Jail Sunday.

He is held on 10 percent of a $5,000 bond, meaning he can post $500 to be released from custody.

Thompson is scheduled to appear in Cerro Gordo County District Court March 29.
