Georgia Teen Charged for Mudbogging on County Road

web posted August 12, 2014

TRENTON   A Martinez teen was charged for malicious injury to real property after Edgefield County Sheriff's Deputies were called to a report of a truck driving up and down Loblolly Lane "tearing up" the road. Trenton Police Chief Deke Tanks was able to stop the truck on the dirt road before deputies could arrive.

The driver of the Ford F-150, 18-year-old Tyler Austin Keip, of Martinez, admitted to the deputy that he, "decided to have fun on the dirt road," according to an incident report. The deputy noted that there were several places where "spin out marks" were photographed as well as a "rutted ditch".

Keip and his passenger, who was not cited, were released after Keip was issued his summons with a court date of September 24 at 2 pm in Magistrate Court.

Photos of the damage to the road were not available.

Edgefield Daily has long advocated for a county ordinance that would place the fine for destroying a county road at the cost of taxpayers funds used to repair the road.
