McEwan was reportedly charged with breaking and entering and trespassing before being released on bond on Sept. 3. Later that same day, the first signs of damage were reported on Trump's golf course.

The second incident occurred on Sunday, and a witness caught part of the license plate of the blue Ford sedan with a Rutgers University sticker.

McEwan has since been released and will be back for a future court date, according to reports.

"He will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law," a Trump Organization spokesperson said in a statement to The Hill.
