A 20-year-old driver accused of beating his car at a Toronto Porsche dealership told employees he was having a "bad day" after a recent breakup.
Toronto police said the car drove through the large glass windows of the downtown building just before 11:00 PM. on Monday night.
The car crashed into one of the Porsches in the sales area, which in turn hit another of the luxury cars, according to the Toronto Const. Jenifferjit Sidhu. There were a total of four damaged Porsches.
The employees told CTV Toronto that the driver got out of the car, entered the dealership and wrote "Eve" on several cars that were not affected by the accident.
The name was supposed to be referring to the ex-girlfriend he recently broke up with, CTV Toronto reported. But police did not confirm what he wrote.
The driver, who was unharmed, was arrested and taken to the police station across the street from the luxury car dealership.
"It is alleged that the collision was really deliberate," Sidhu said. "There is no indication of drugs or alcohol."
The unidentified man from Toronto was charged with a dangerous operation of a vehicle, two counts of damages over $ 5,000 and a charge of $ 5,000 in damages.
Management for the concessionaire declined to comment.
On Tuesday, cleaning staff could be seen sweeping the sidewalk glass and the utility room.
The suspect is due in court on Wednesday.
