Local news has a tendency to be cringeworthy, but the antics of one reporter at a car show will probably make your blood boil.
As you can see in this clip posted to Facebook, Angel Cardenas was reporting from the Sacramento International Auto Show on Sunday for Good Day Sacramento. While that’s not too unusual, Cardenas’ behavior was absolutely appalling.
The segment starts off innocently enough as Cardenas chats with the show’s hosts and explains there are over 500 cars at this year’s event. Things quickly take a turn for the worse as Cardenas says “no one is out here to tell me which cars I can’t go in,” so he decides to “go on the wild side.”
I had to record this and share. If you own one of these t birds thats out at the car show you might want to give it a good once over. Ive never seen such a disregard for someone else's vehicle. And keep watching it gets worse. #someonegettingfired #someonegettingsued #boundariesbroboundaries

Despite a sign saying please keep off the displays, which Cardenas acknowledges, he ducks underneath the railing and jumps on the hood like an idiot. The segment quickly ends as someone off camera yells to get off the car.

The Sacramento International Auto Show reached out to the station’s general manager following the “astonishingly awful incident.” The general manager later called back to say Cardenas was “terminated immediately.”
