Seattle police officers Matthew Wahlgren and Rene Flores are facing charges of malicious mischief after allegedly damaging another officer's patrol car. The third officer was on patrol when he reportedly saw Wahlgren's motorcycle parked outside a bar. He stopped and moments later the other two, who were off duty, came out, apparently intoxicated. The two approached him and began to play with the car's equipment. When the officer tried to leave, they started kicking the car, denting it and breaking a window and side mirror. Wahlgren allegedly told the officer to cover up the incident by reporting that he found the patrol car damaged, but the officer notified his supervisors.
