      A Tesla Model 3 owner is thanking the video recording capabilities of Sentry Mode after it captured a shocking act of vandalism against his electric car. As could be seen in footage from the security feature, a woman stealthily yet aggressively keyed the Model 3 as she was ushering her children inside a Dodge Journey SUV, resulting in deep scratches to the vehicle’s body panels.

      A short clip of the incident was shared on YouTube by Rafael “Teslatino“ Santoni, who noted in a conversation with Teslarati that while the incident definitely appeared premeditated, the Model 3 owner could not determine the lady’s motivation for the attack. The damage from the incident was quoted at $900 in repair costs by a third-party body shop.

      Fortunately for the Model 3 owner, the footage from Sentry Mode was able to capture the entire incident, and it featured a clear shot of the woman’s face. With her identity determined, the attack was promptly reported to the police, who later arrested the woman on vandalism charges. It remains to be seen if she will be required to pay for the damages she caused to the Model 3.

      Arrested for $900 in damage? And it's just a keyed car, too...not exactly serious crime. Aren't felony level damages usually over $1000? Seems heavy handed and possibly racist too...betcha a white lady wouldnt have been arrested.

      Aren't there some locales where video surveillance has to be posted or is even illegal?

      The only thing I can think of is if the car was recording on private property and that property had a no camera policy, particularly if it was a government property, the car owner could be guilty of a crime.

      Easy for you to say since it isn't your car.

      If that had been my car I would have keyed it myself like a man.

      That's so stupid. It should take thousands of dollars of damage to get yourself arrested. Why are we clogging up the jails with these people?

      What do you want, a slap on the wrist? A stern talking to? A forced apology? These are crimes, crimes deserve punishment regardless of your opinion. It just so happens that damaging somebody else's property on purpose counts as a crime.

      Were you born yesterday? Even your trollish nature must have its limits, no?

      All you have to do is cort-order them to reimburse the owner. The judicial system is out of control. What's next, arresting marijuana users? Oh wait.

      Crimes must be punished, unless they are white collar crimes that is.

      You're using your opinions on this matter to argue against the law, it dosent work that way. Feelings don't run the show. All of us have laws we hate or think are stupid, but can we just run around and ignore them and do what we want, hurting other people in the process then hope the cops/judge will let us go because of our little opinions?

      Sounds like you need to go vote. Or probably register to vote first.

      1. Her ass is huge. She should have keyed her own ham planet self.

      2. Tesla's mirror cameras offer better resolution and frame rate than any bank's security cameras.

      You would have a point if the car was heavily vandalized or worse. They should just compensate for the damage done and be on their way.

      What a jerk move. Instead of the woman paying for the damage, I'd request to have her make amends by doing community service.
