INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett’s former press secretary has been charged with misdemeanor criminal mischief.

Dan Goldblatt is accused of kicking a woman’s car and causing thousands of dollars in damage to the vehicle.

His attorney, Jacob Lawrence, declined to comment on the case when reached by The Associated Press Tuesday.

The Indianapolis Star reports (https://indy.st/29Reg9q ) that the 32-year-old woman told police she was driving through a yellow light earlier this month when Goldblatt crossed the street in front of her and kicked her car.

The mayor’s office placed Goldblatt on administrative leave a day later.

A spokeswoman for the mayor’s office confirmed to the Star Monday that Goldblatt no longer works there.
