Teen admits to vandalizing BK congressman's office

A teenager has been arrested after admitting to vandalizing the campaign office of a Brooklyn congressman.

According to police, three smashed windows were discovered at Congressman Michael Grimm's (R-District 13) Staten Island office on Sunday. They say a 14-year-old was charged with criminal mischief for the crime.

Grimm's office also claims that hard drives were erased, but investigators are still examining the server.

Grimm represents parts of the borough and is currently running for re-election against Democrat Mark Murphy.
