Daytona Beach, Florida (AP) --

Two Daytona Beach police officers are charged with felony criminal mischief after they allegedly dented a mobile home by kicking it.

Officers Justin Ranum and Donald Aldridge were arrested September 2
and released on $1,000 bail. They were placed on administrative
leave with pay.

According to The Daytona Beach News-Journal, they went to a
woman's trailer August 9 looking for her boyfriend, who had fled
police a week earlier during a traffic stop. When no one answered,
the officers allegedly started kicking and hitting the trailer with
a flashlight.

The boyfriend was later arrested and charged with fleeing and
eluding police.

Ranum declined to comment to The Associated Press. A message
left for Aldridge was not immediately returned Friday.
