A man has been charged with criminal damage in Arizona after security cameras filmed him keying the Corvette of his former boss.
According to police, the 33-year-old man, Nicolus Thomas, visited the Midas auto shop he had been fired from to pick up his personal belongings. When he was there, he slyly left a massive scratch down the side of the 2008 Corvette Z06 owned by the shop’s owner.
Little did he known that the entire event was captured on CCTV and witnessed by a number of employees.
While speaking with ABC in Arizona, the Z06 owner, Michael Duda, said that he had a feeling the former employee may do something when he returned to the shop.
“I just had a feeling. I even said something as he was standing behind me, ‘You’re not going to do anything to my car are you?’” he said.
The damage caused was so comprehensive that the Corvette is currently being resprayed at a cost of almost $4,000 and Duda says that “come rain or shine”, the ex-employee is going to pay for the repairs.
