Surveillance video released by Kingston Police shows the son of a former political candidate slashing the tires of a staff member for an opponent's campaign.
In the video, investigators say you can see Michael Mayfield, get off his father's campaign bus, look aound the Roane County Courthouse parking lot for a couple of minutes, and then cut the tires of a car in the parking lot.
The car belonged to a member of Chuck Fleischmann's campaign staff.
Mayfield's father, Scottie Mayfield, was running for the Republican nomination for the US House seat in district three at the time. Fleischmann later won the primary for that race.
Michael Mayfield pleaded guilty last week to vandalism. A judge gave him judicial diversion and ordered him to pay restitution for the damage he caused.
