WESTPORT, Conn. — Three Westport teens were arrested early Sunday after they ripped up poles and turf and damaged garbage cans and benches at Longshore Golf Course, police said.

At about 12:15 a.m., Westport officers responded to a call of people damaging the golf course and making noise.

Officers found poles ripped from the ground, ripped-up grass turf, smashed garbage cans and broken benches that had been thrown in the water, police said.

The officers spotted three young men, who ran from them when they identified themselves as police officers. All three were located a short time later.

Arrested were: Benjamin Friedman, 18, of Sturges Highway; Jack Schenck, 18, of Clinton Avenue; and Colin Hoy, 18, of Westport.

They were each charged with second-degree criminal mischief, second-degree criminal trespass, interfering with an officer and conspiracy to commit second-degree criminal mischief, police said.

They are each scheduled to appear in court on June 22.
