National News

BROOMFIELD, Colo. (WEHT/CNN) – Police in Colorado are looking for a woman who was caught on video, appearing to key a Tesla Model 3 in a school parking lot.

The motion-capturing cameras onboard the car caught the entire incident.

Alan Tweedie, the car’s owner, parked the Tesla at Legacy High School for his daughter’s nearby soccer game and didn’t discover the damage until he got home.

He pulled up footage from his car’s cameras placed around the vehicle in strategic places.

He found the moment “a woman distinctly came around with the key in her hand. Stuck it right in the side, walked all the way around. Very angry, very purposeful, definitely trying to conceal it…”

He said he doesn’t recognize the woman and doesn’t know why she would do it. He is certain that the incident wasn’t random.

Tweedie filed a report with police, but also did a little investigating on his own too.

He posted the video to Facebook, where it went viral and accumulated more than 100,000 views.

Because the damage is estimated at more than $2,000, police say the woman likely will face a felony charge.
