David Washburn, an Anderson Street resident, was arrested and will be tried for third degree home invasion. According to police, Washburn broke down his neighbor's door and smashed an entertainment system at 7:50 a.m., Sunday, June 13.

Washburn could face a five-year felony sentence and/or $2,000 fine if convicted. He is still lodged in Oakland County Jail, unable to post a $20,000 or 10 percent bond.

Lake Orion police said Washburn's neighbor was playing music on a stereo when Washburn kicked in the front door, ripped it in two and threw the pieces inside. He then entered the house, walked to the entertainment center and destroyed a TV and stereo.

When police arrived at Washburn's residence to question him about the incident, Washburn said he had no idea what they were talking about and that he was sleeping during the time of the incident, according to the report.

Washburn's criminal history includes malicious damage, arson and a weapons violation.
