Man rams cars at dealership to show his displeasure

Man rams cars at dealership to show his displeasure


PORTSMOUTH — Believing he had been sold a lemon, a Massachusetts man turned his unwanted vehicle into a consumer complaint form Wednesday and rammed the cars parked at a city car dealer, police said.

David Cross, 41, of 21 North St., Salisbury, Mass., calmly walked up to Portsmouth police shortly before 1 a.m. Wednesday and told them about his antics, said police Sgt. Chris Roth.

"He wasn't happy with the service he got there so he figured he would take it out on them," Roth said. 

Police said Cross damaged several vehicles, including a Mustang, Dodge Caravan, Mercedes and Infinity, at Portsmouth Used Car Superstore, 2219 Lafayette Road.

"He did some pretty good damage," Roth said. "He had his license plates in his hand. He took them off his lemon and walked across the street with them."

Cross had purchased a 2000 Dodge Caravan from the dealership, Roth said.

He was charged with criminal mischief and released on bail after being booked.
