Default What would happen...

if you trashed a cop's desk in a fit of rage?

Destruction of public property? (I'm guessing ... I did not know there would be a pop quiz)

This is like asking where a 600lb gorilla would sit.

IOW, not a lot to go on in the question, plus DA could charge up to felony assault and attempted murder if something hit a cop.

I'm pretty sure you wouldn't have much of a face, and the charge would be to your bank account for the cost of the desk. Either that or else you'd be making a 'quick trip' to IKEA in handcuffs to replace the desk (just try putting it together with those cuffs on, pal! Ha!)

This completely depends on the characters involved. If you're the cop's friend? Nothing. If you're a perp? How pissed did you make the cop? If you're another cop? Completely different scenario. If it looks like you need a trip to the psych ward? Maybe a 48-hour hold. If you're a father frustrated by the lack of progress in his missing child's case? You might get some leeway.

You've got a lot of flexibility, even to the point of "What's the charge?" "I don't know, I'll figure it out." In the grand scheme of things, trashing a desk is pretty minor, so I suspect the answer lies in your characters, not in the act itself.

Disorderly conduct. Assault, if anything hit the cop and she was in the mood to stick it to you.

Thanks all. Food for thought. I tried googling this but it seems people actually getting arrested for committing a crime INSIDE a police station is pretty rare.

You'd be charged with a clichéd expression of on screen anger which, while only a misdemeanor, would still get you sent to screenwriter prison where you would be forced to watch every episode of the 80s tv hit HUNTER.
