Troopers: Woman damaged patrol car, state police barracks during arrest on warrant in Mayfield


MAYFIELD An Albany woman is facing charges in connection to a January incident where she is accused of damaging a state police patrol car and a state police barracks during her arrest then, state police said.

Vaughn A. McAdoo, 33, of Albany, was initially arrested on the warrant in Mayfield in January, state police said. Troopers then got their own arrest warrant for the damage allegations and processed her on that last week, officials said.

McAdoo faces one count each of second-degree and third-degree criminal mischief, felonies, in the incident, as well as multiple misdemeanors, troopers said.

The incident happened Jan. 23 as troopers took her into custody at a residence in Mayfield on the warrant out of Troy, state police spokeswoman Trooper Kerry Burns said.

She is accused of actively resisting and began kicking at the troopers. As they placed her in the trooper car, she is accused of kicking the door, causing damage, Burns said.

Then, at the barracks, she is accused of damaging two panels of wall and kicking a medical bag of EMS personnel that had been contacted to evaluate her, Burns said. When she used the bathroom, she used toilet paper to stuff the toilet, causing it to overflow and flood the bathroom, Burns said.

Troopers then turned her over to Troy police. They got their own warrant and McAdoo was produced from the Rensselaer County Jail to appear on the Fulton County charges, Burns said. She was then ordered back to the jail.

McAdoo also faces misdemeanor criminal mischief, criminal tampering, obstructing governmental administration, obstructing emergency medical services and resisting arrest, troopers said.
