NJ man charged with vandalizing ex’s car after Trump win
PHILADELPHIA — Police in this city say a New Jersey man vandalized property, including his ex-girlfriend's car, with pro-Donald Trump graffiti in the hours after the Republican was declared the winner of the presidential election.
William Tucker, 58, of Lawnside, is charged with four counts of criminal mischief.
Police say Tucker spray-painted racist and pro-Trump messages on his ex-girlfriend's car, two other vehicles and a home. Both he and the woman are black.
Surveillance video captured a man spray-painting the hood of a parked car around 5 a.m. on Nov. 9. Police say the woman and her daughter identified him as Tucker.
A man who answered a phone number listed for Tucker and identified himself as a friend told The Philadelphia Inquirer that he had no idea why Tucker might have vandalized any property.
