Son Scratches New BMW at Dealership So His Dad Would Buy It For Him
A 22-year-old man in China was recently captured on camera purposely scratching a brand-new car at a dealership in China.
The surveillance footage, uploaded on Miaopai, was taken from inside a BMW showroom in Shangrao city in Jiangxi province, according to Shanghaiist.
In the clip, the unidentified man can be seen swiping at the rear door of a blue sedan with a key, resulting in an unsightly long scratch. As it turned out, the man did it on purpose to force his father to buy him the car.
Immediately after damaging the car, the man told an employee from the store that he was planning to buy the car. Still, the employee notified the police and when the officers arrived, the man explained that the car would be paid for by his father.
The man claimed his father had promised to buy a car for him as a reward for getting his license. Since his dad had not bought him one, he took the initiative to find a nice car and force his father to purchase it by damaging it a little.
While it might turn out the way he envisioned it in the end, with him keeping the car eventually, he did not foresee that he’d end up in jail for it.
Based on the report, there was no confirmation that the son actually got the car, although he was reportedly detained briefly for his actions.
