Video taken last weekend showed Park City resident Pierre Bois, 61, using a key and scraping the sides of several vehicles at the East Canyon Creek trailhead. The Summit County Sheriff's Office said Boi later confessed to "keying" the vehicles.

In all, Bois keyed a 2019 Honda Odyssey, a 2018 Tesla Model X, and a 2021 Ford F-150.

Bois told officials he damaged the vehicles because "he was upset that mountain bikers were causing damage to trails and making a muddy mess," according to the police report.

In video shared with the sheriff's office, Bois can be seen lurking in the parking lot and looking around before he takes out his keys and scrapes one of the the vehicles.

On Wednesday, three charges of criminal mischief were filed against Bois.
