Cyclist Jailed for Slashing Vehicles' Tires

Apr 16, 9:54 am ET

LONDON (Reuters) - A British cyclist who slashed almost 2,000 tires after a driver drenched him when driving through a puddle was sentenced to 16 months in prison Friday.
Ashley Carpenter, 37, used a sharpened screwdriver to puncture the tires of 548 parked cars, trucks and vans over a 10-day period in revenge for the "inconsiderate manner" of motorists.

Carpenter told police he began his campaign after one car nearly knocked him down and another drove through a puddle and drenched him.

Actually judging by the pictures in the other post on this same topic, it appears as though Asheley is a guy! Tonya's brother perhaps???
