Spoilt Son Damages BMW To Force Father To Buy It

Crime / Comments

Kid deliberately keys BMW in the hope his daddy would buy it for him.

We all dream about owning our first car after passing our driving test. In China, a 22-year old man desperately wanted his first car to be a BMW after getting his license. He recently visited a BMW dealership in the Jiangxi city of Shangrao and showed interest in buying a blue sedan. But the spoilt son thought he had a cunning plan to force his father to buy the car for him.

Surveillance footage shows the man deliberately scratching the brand-new sedan with a set of keys, leaving a prominent scratch along the side of the rear door. The footage is grainy, but it appears to be a new BMW 3 Series with a stretched wheelbase, which is very popular in China.

When staff challenged him, he told them he was planning to buy it. Unsurprisingly, this didn't stop them from calling the police for deliberately damaging the car. When officers arrived, the man claimed the car would be paid for by his father.

It turns out his father had promised to buy his son a fancy new car as a reward for him getting his license. Since his dad hadn't delivered his promise, the impatient man found the car he wanted and deliberately damaged it, hoping this would force his father to buy it for him. Because that's how you show gratitude.

"He's like a little kid asking for a gift from his parents. He believed if he damaged the car, his father would buy it for him," Chen Junnan, a local police officer told Pear Video. Ultimately, his plan backfired badly as Shanghaiist reports the man did some jail time for his act of vandalism. It's not clear, however, if the father still bought the BMW 3 Series for his son or just paid for the damage to be repaired.
