Repaired damage cause by vandalism!

I walked up to my car this morning and noticed the rear window wiper was pointed down. I immediately reviewed my dash cam footage and identified the moron that damaged my (dirty) car. I filed a police report with the local precinct and then repaired the wiper myself. It was a simple fix but I was still irate this morning (and afternoon). How do I post links? I’d like to share the footage.

Was your car parked? It seems odd that this guy would pull up behind a parked car and mess with it.
The video appears to be in a traffic lane. Is that correct?

Based on watching the video, I'm guessing the guy did it because he was pissed that there was barely any room for him to get his car out and blamed you for it. You can see how he had to squeeze between the back of his car and the car behind him to get over to walk on the sidewalk.

Yes, my car was parked. I was parked by the sidewalk.

You are spot on with your assessment! When he’s arrested I will get the last laugh!

I get it now.
He barely had room to get out of the spot.
That could be because the OP's vehicle was too far back, or the car behind may have pulled too far forward.
Either way, it's NOT an excuse for vandalizing the OP's vehicle.
