I was charged with criminal mischief for accidentally breaking a window on my neighbors front door while wrongly assuming the house was mine , after a long night out . The glass shattered from the door as I tried to forge my way in , and I was rightfully cited , as I irresponsibly consumed too much alcohol that night . I apologized the next day and offered to pay for the damages associated with the door repair . Neighbors now claim door doesn't shut right , and got an estimate for a top of the line door for $ 1 , 140 base + $ 800 in labor . They didn't even get an estimate to fix the old door , and are claiming $ 2000 in damages for a piece of glass ? Officer says i have to pay restitution by Friday or i get arrested . This is not reasonable , I need help .
