View Comments ()



    Police arrested two Glastonbury teenagers Sunday after receiving a complaint that someone was doing doughnuts in the Hopewell Elementary School parking lot.

    Scott Schaffman, 19, and a 16-year-old took turns "driving recklessly in the parking lot and on the basketball court," damaging the pavement with tire marks, Glastonbury police said in a press release.

    Police said that Schaffman had previously been warned not to skateboard on school grounds but that he did so in a "no skateboarding" area.

    Police charged both teens with third-degree criminal mischief and reckless driving. Police did not release the identity of the 16-year-old because the individual is under 17.

    Both teens received juvenile summons to appear in juvenile court on Broad Street in Hartford on June 30 and were released at the scene.
