Florida Sheriff: Van With 5-Foot Tires Crushes Small Car

Authorities in southwest Florida say they’ve arrested a man who drove a van with 5-foot tires over a small car, crushing it.

According to the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office, a teenage girl returned to the Red Neck Yacht Club early Saturday to find her car crushed.

Deputies said security guards saw a large crowd several hours earlier urging two large trucks to run over the car. Those vehicles failed, but a short time later a van with 5-foot tires showed up.

According to the sheriff’s office, the van’s tires smashed the car’s hood, and the driver drove over the smaller car several times.

The sheriff’s office says security guards identified the van’s driver, who was arrested at a campsite.

The driver was charged with felony criminal mischief.
