Former police sergeant Andrew Pritchard has been charged with six counts of criminal damage.
The 46-year-old, from Newbridge, Essex, was arrested at his home in Newbridge on Thursday after neighbours complained of a noise.
He is due to appear in court on November 17.
Pritchard was suspended from his job as a police officer in January after an alleged incident in his house, the Essex Police tweeted.
The incident happened on May 31, the force said.
The force said the case had been referred to the Public Prosecution Service for further action.
