23-year-old Samuel Hunter Lusty was taken into custody this week for vandalism. On February 3rd, officers received a call, where the complainant advised them that when he went outside to head to work, he noticed his passenger side tire had been cut with a knife. The complainant and his roommate, Colton Harris, are Hendersonville police officers, adding that he believed Harris was the intended target because he was romantically involved with a female, Kristen Cowart, who lives in the same building of the apartments on Windsor Green Boulevard,

On February 7th, officers investigated and spoke with Cowart, who stated she had broken up with her boyfriend, Lusty, the night before. She said that Lusty left and returned around 11:00 p.m., calling her phone repeatedly, driving around her building radically, and screaming threats at her and her roommate, Abigail Clark. She stated that Lusty accused her of cheating on him with Harris, upset that he was a police officer. Cowart then said Clark witnessed Lusty slashing both her and Clark’s tires before driving off. When officers spoke with Clark, she corroborated Cowart’s statements. Lusty was detained on February 4th for outstanding warrants as he returned to the apartments to retrieve some belongings. Once Lusty was arrested, officers asked him if he vandalized anyone’s vehicle, and he denied it but made several statements about Harris running his relationship and sleeping with his girlfriend. The amount of damage totaled $135.00.
