WHITEHALL -- A 36-year-old Whitehall woman was charged with felony criminal mischief for damaging the car of a teen she believed cut him off, according to the Washington County Sheriff's Office.

Police said Joyce Sanchez was driving her daughter to school on Jan. 25 when the driver of a red pickup truck allegedly cut her off. Documents filed did not specify where the incident occurred, but police said it occurred somewhere near the Whitehall Junior/Senior High School.

Police said Sanchez followed the truck to the high school where she went inside to complain about the pickup truck's driver, Kyle Mach, 19.

Sanchez was told no one was available to speak with her and that she should come back later, said Washington County Sheriff's Lt. Jeffrey Tucker.

Police said surveillance camera footage captured Sanchez scratching the paint from the truck that was parked in the school's parking lot.

She was charged with third-degree criminal mischief and was released pending a court appearance later this month, police said.

Mach, the driver of the pickup truck, does not face any charges.

Whitehall Superintendent Jim Watson said the school assisted in the investigation by providing the surveillance camera footage.

"We don't consider it to be a school issue," he said. "It was generated from the outside, and it ended up here."
