Man gets a year behind bars for kicking car door

November 04, 1997

A Westminster man was sentenced yesterday in Carroll County Circuit Court to a year in jail for damaging the door of a woman's new car.

Burton A. Eyler Jr., 25, of the 200 block of Pennsylvania Ave. pleaded not guilty before Judge Raymond E. Beck Sr., who found him guilty and imposed a three-year sentence, suspending two years.

Eyler reportedly shouted "Field goal," just before slamming his foot into the car at 1: 30 a.m. on Dec. 3, 1996, behind a residence in the first block of Anchor St. Damage was estimated at $800.

A man who saw the incident followed Eyler until police arrived and arrested him, court records show.
