Guy Vandalizes A Tesla With His Watch In His Mouth

A guy, who was somewhat well dressed and really cared for his watch, recently vandalized a Tesla. The location was City Place C, 50 3rd Street in Long Beach, CA. The Tesla owner, Stephen Richie, filled out a police report.

The vandal cared so much for his watch that he held it in his mouth while tearing off a side mirror of a Tesla. It’s really sad to see how much hatred people have for Tesla vehicles. I mean, this guy looked like he was a professional — nice dress shirt, nice watch — someone you’d say hi to if you accidentally bumped into his cart in the store.

In the first part of the video, he actually has his watch in his hand. He goes and starts moving the mirror. He hits it and pulls it back. Then, from the angle of the camera, it looks like he’s trying to pry open either the door or the hood. Frustrated, he puts his watch in his mouth so he can use both hands, and then he takes it out on that mirror. He finally breaks the mirror almost all the way off to the point that it’s dangling, and then struggles with it some more like he wanted to take it all the way off. Angry, he finally gives up and spits on the ground — so not sexy.

Then he goes back to that side where he looked like he was trying to pry something open, mouths what looks like an F-bomb, then goes back to the mirror. He puts his watch back on and finally succeeds in detaching the mirror from the vehicle, and then celebrates his victory by spitting again. One would think after all that hard work he would keep his prize, but no, he just tosses it over his shoulder and walks off.

In the photo above, you can see a tattoo. Tattoos are often used in investigations when it comes to identifying perps. Perhaps this will help.

In this next video, you can see that there is a security guard who didn’t even seem to notice this guy vandalizing the Tesla, or just ignored the situation. It looks like the guard noticed the vehicle alarm go off then just turned his back around and pretended he didn’t notice it.

This incident happened in Long Beach, California, so if you have any information on this guy, please contact the Long Beach police department.
