A 51-year-old Bayonne resident was charged with disorderly conduct and criminal mischief within the space of a few days, police said.

Michael J. Lapinski was arrested at around 7:20 p.m. Friday at the QuikChek on East 22nd Street. Police said he was seen writing on a vehicle with a marker, but Lapinski explained that the vehicle belonged to him and he was planning on "junking it," police said.

He was arrested, however, after he was permitted to use the store's restroom and then locked himself into a stall and refused to leave, according to police. When officers ultimately managed to get Lapinski to exit, he became upset and yelled at customers in the parking lot. When he ignored officers' orders to stop creating a disturbance, he was placed in custody and charged with disorderly conduct.

On Sunday, Lapinski was arrested on a charge of criminal mischief after police said he admitted to vandalizing an electrical panel box at 266 Broadway. Police had initially tried to speak with him after spotting him at 12th Street and Broadway shortly before midnight.

According to police, Lapinski wrote his name and identifying information on the box with a black marker, which officers found on him.
