GRAFTON -- A man accused of trashing the lobby at the Grafton Police Department has pleaded not guilty.

David Dondlinger, 22, on Tuesday, May 8 pleaded not guilty to two charges -- criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct. A plea/sentencing hearing was set for June 20.

According to the criminal complaint, officers were dispatched to the Grafton Police Department lobby on March 11. A man identified as Dondlinger, had walked into the lobby and "immediately began screaming and kicked a hole in the wall near the entryway." The complaint indicates Dondlinger then pulled brochures out, broke brochure holders off the wall, pulled pictures off the wall, smashed those pictures and even jumped on one of them.
