A South Dakota man spent the day he was released from prison smashing 18 vehicles at two dealerships with an ax, police said.
The man was captured on video hacking holes through windshields, hoods and body panels. Dealership officials said they’ve had a tough time getting inventory and now are scrambling to obtain a long list of replacement parts.
“Imagine a car, not being able to get a car — and that’s parts put together,” Kyle Kneip, new-vehicle sales manager at Audi Sioux Falls, told TV station KELO. “Now we can’t get the parts for the cars that they can’t even build. So now sourcing the windshields and the hoods and the bumpers is something our body shop will have a fun time doing.”
Police arrested the man, who had been in prison for damaging property in a nearby county.
