PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Portland police arrested a man wearing a New York Yankees hat over the weekend after he threw a brick through the police station’s glass front door.

Police say 38-year-old Jeffrey Nason entered the Middle Street station at about 8:30 p.m. Saturday to complain that someone in the street had yelled at him for wearing a Yankees cap.

He left the station and threw a brick through the lobby door. He was caught a short distance away and charged with aggravated criminal mischief.

No one was hurt, but damage to the door was estimated at $1,000.

Nason was held at the Cumberland County Jail. Police did not say where he was from.
