Harold Claffey's 2007 Chevrolet Impala sustained four sizable dents on the passenger side following a midday incident Wednesday which saw an unnamed male repeatedly kicking the vehicle. The suspect has since been arrested and charged with mischief.
Harold Claffey was eating lunch at a local restaurant Wednesday when an individual came inside and told those gathered that an individual was kicking a nearby grey car.
The vehicle in question happened to be owned by Caffey.
Upon inspection, the damage sustained on the passenger's side of the 2007 Chevrolet Impala was clearly evident in four spots – on the trunk, on the rear door and on both sides of the front wheel.
"I saw him calmly walking up Main Street and had a friend follow him," Caffey told the Times-Herald shortly before 4 p.m.
Caffey called the Moose Jaw Police Service (MJPS) and told them the direction the suspect was headed in after leaving the scene of the incident on Oxford Street.
MJPS located the suspect and arrested him in the A&W parking lot, just west of Main Street North.
The unnamed man was charged with mischief and is scheduled to make a court appearance at a later date.
However, Claffey is more concerned about the potential that his vehicle could be written off, plus another court battle he will have on his hands.
"I'm going to have to take him to small-claims court for the deductible on my insurance," said Claffey.
This incident is still under investigation.
