An Auburn man was arrested Saturday and charged with a felony after he repeatedly kicked a former friend's car, Auburn police said. 

On Aug. 9, 25-year-old Allen J. Sheppard, of 12 School St., Auburn, intentionally damaged a 2012 Hyundai Elantra by kicking the vehicle 12 times, causing over $2,200 worth of damage, Deputy Chief Roger Anthony said.

The owner of the vehicle, a former friend of Sheppard's, called the police when she heard the banging and saw Sheppard kicking the car from her window. The two had not been in a fight or altercation prior to the incident, Anthony said. 

Sheppard was picked up on an arrest warrant Saturday and charged with second-degree criminal mischief, a felony. He is scheduled to be arraigned at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in Auburn City Court.
