Police: Man vandalized car lot because owner repossessed wife’s car

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) — A Memphis man has been arrested after smashing windows at a car lot with a sledgehammer last week, and it was all caught on camera.

Police say suspect Antonio Donahue shattered the windows of 23 vehicles. Officers say his overnight rampage was prompted by his anger after his wife’s car was repossessed.

Surveillance video shows the suspect casually walking through the lot smashing window after window with a small sledgehammer. Some cars were left with the entire rear windows shattered, while others had giant holes.

Police say video shows Donahue go across the street to get a hot dog and a drink before returning to smash even more windows. He then tried to remove the rims from his wife’s repossessed car before police arrived.

He now faces charges of criminal attempt felony: theft of property $1,000-$10,000 and vandalism over $500.
