WALKERVILLE — Two Walkerville teenagers were arraigned in 78th District Court recently on misdemeanor charges following their arrests last month for throwing rocks at passing vehicles from the roof of Walkerville High School.

Morgan James Pearson, 18, of 160 S. East St., faces charges of malicious destruction of property (MDOP) less than $200 and littering – objects in path of vehicle and Christian Glen DeWitt, 17, of 170 S. Menes St., is charged with littering – objects in path of vehicle.

The pair were arrested by the Michigan State Police, Aug. 30. According to the police report, they climbed up onto the school roof at night and threw rocks at passing vehicles after Pearson reportedly broke an outside school surveillance camera with a rock.

The trooper who was dispatched to the scene found “50-60 golf ball size rocks lying on both sides of Main Street,” the report states.

Pearson, who is currently lodged in the Newaygo County Jail on a $3,500/cash/surety/10 percent cash bond according to his court file, is scheduled for a pretrial conference in 78th District Court, Oct. 20, at 11:30 a.m. DeWitt is scheduled to appear Oct. 6 at 9:45 a.m.
