For the second time in as many weeks, a public Minnesota soccer field was torn up by someone in a car.

The most recent incident happened over the weekend in West St. Paul, where city officials are asking for help figuring out who did this to the Sports Complex fields:

The total damage from estimated at about $4,000 to the soft turf used for the fields, the city says in a Facebook post. The Sports Complex, located at 1650 Oakdale Ave., is about 20 acres.

The city' police department says anyone can report tips or offer information here.

This incident comes about two weeks after a similar report in Hastings, where people whipping "doughnuts" led to serious damage at the Veterans Athletic Complex soccer fields. Two men were ultimately arrested and charged with criminal property damage in that case.
