Officials now say they believe Ibanez had malicious intent the entire time, but say he intentionally mislead Troopers in to thinking they were giving a courtesy ride to a pedestrian in the rain.

Ibanez is now being held in the county jail on $2,500 cash bail/$10,000 bond on five counts of Criminal Mischief in the fourth-degree, one charge of Attempted Criminal Mischief in the fourth-degree and six counts of Criminal Tampering.
