Man Injured by Toppled Tombstone Charged

Tuesday May 8, 2007 3:31 PM

MERRILLVILLE, Ind. (AP) - A man found trapped unconscious beneath a 1,000-pound tombstone in a cemetery faces charges and might have to pay for damages, police said.

Michael David Schreiber's legs were broken by the stone, and the family name on the gravestone left the letter ``V'' imprinted on his thigh, Merrillville Officer Ray Smith said.

He said it took five officers to remove the headstone from Schreiber's body Sunday morning at Calumet Park Cemetery.

Schreiber, 22, of Merrillville faces charges of criminal trespassing, criminal mischief and public intoxication, police said. He also might be ordered to pay for damage to 14 headstones, Police Chief Nicholas Bravos said. Estimated damage totaled about $8,400, Bravos said.

Schreiber told police he and a companion had been drinking before going to the cemetery.

He estimated he had been trapped under the headstone for more than three hours before police arrived, Bravos said. His condition was not immediately available Tuesday morning, a nursing supervisor at Methodist Hospitals said.

I just bought a tombstone for my 23 year old son. If this dimwit had done thus to my son's memorial and I found him crushed under it, he would be wishing that it had finished him off before I got to him.

That has to be the absolute pinnacle of disrespect.
