Tesla Sentry Mode leads to another vandalism arrest
The latest incident involved a keyed Model 3 in Colorado.
Tesla's Sentry Mode has led to another arrest after a Model 3 was keyed in a Colorado school parking lot.
Alan Tweedie posted a video on Facebook showing a woman drag a key across his car, scratching the paint nearly the entire length of the vehicle. The post quickly went viral, tallying more than a quarter-million views in less than a week.
The Broomfield Police Department have now announced the arrest of a 57-year-old woman accused of vandalizing the EV. She has been charged with Criminal Mischief, a Class 6 felony.
"We received hundreds of tips on the video of the woman caught keying a Tesla over the weekend," the department says. "We appreciate the community's help in solving this case."
The incident is not the first arrest tied to Tesla's surveillance technology and presumably won't be the last.
