Student accused of vandalizing car

A 19-year-old Hollis Brookline High School student was arrested Wednesday and charged with criminal mischief, a class A misdemeanor.

Police said Autumn Savoy, 19, of 88 Runnels Bridge Road, was arrested following a vandalism complaint at the high school.

He is accused of scratching the word fag into a Mitsubishi Lancer parked in the rear of the high school, causing roughly $500 in damages.

“I was having a bad day,” the student told police.

Lt. James Sartel said police determined that the vandalism was random and that it wasn’t a hate crime.

“The car belonged to a friend of the victim, but he didn’t know it,” Sartel said.

Savoy was released on $1,500 personal recognizance bail and will be arraigned Feb. 25 in Nashua District Court.

In April, the high school student was arrested on school grounds for possession of a controlled substance.

A Nashua District Court judge sentenced him to six months of jail time, deferred for two years based on good behavior and drug counseling.
