Police procedure/sentencing for vandalism

I have a character who took out some aggression on a vending machine outside a gas station in the NYC area. There is visible damage to the machine and plenty of witnesses. The gas station employees call the cops.

1) Would this be considered vandalism? If not, what specifically is the crime?
2) Would he be taken to the station? He does have a record.
3) What would happen to him at the station? Where would he be put? Would he be able to communicate with other people being held? How long would he be there?
4) What would be the sentencing? A fine? Jail time? How much/long?

Thanks so much!
