A warrant was issued for Andrews for the incident on May 7.

Police said they were called to a dispute at Park Drive Manor II at about 2 a.m. Sunday and found Andrews. He was taken into custody on the warrant and is charged with one count of third-degree mischief, a class E felony, authorities said. He is scheduled to appear in City Court.
