Man slashes tire of cop car while cop is still in car


Now slashing a tire is a boneheaded move regardless of who it is, but slashing a police car’s tire while the cop is still in the car, that’s just an idiot ting.


A 24-year-old man from Arizona named Ashton Powers was accused of slashing the tire of a police vehicle without realizing that a officer was still in the vehicle.


Police say that the man causally walked up to a patrol car at 2 a.m. and stabbed a tire with his knife.


“I don’t know what this guy was thinking,” the officer that was in the vehicle said. “It’s a fully marked police car, the car was running, the officer was inside with the air conditioning on and you could hear the car running. It still didn’t stop him from slashing the tire.”


So far the man has been charged with one count of criminal damage.
