There are many variables here ,including the scale of the papering, where it happens, and the homeowner's sense of humor. Depending on the these factors it could be laughed off or treated as a city or county littering ordinance. It could also treated as a criminal trespass, which is a misdemeanor. In the worst case scenario -an extreme rolling combined with an hysterical homeowner and an over zealous police officer - more serious charges could be brought.

It is difficult to fully answer such a question without knowing all the facts, but as a starting point, such a person could be charged with criminal trespass, among other possibilities. As a former prosecutor, (state and federal), and as a defense attorney currently, I would suggest that you should retain a criminal defense lawyer in your community concerning this criminal matter. Good luck!
