A Florida man is accused of fighting dirty by using a tractor to dump dirt on a white Cadillac his girlfriend was driving.
Hunter Mills, 20, Of Crestview was charged with felony criminal mischief on Thursday, according to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Department.
He invited his girlfriend to a spot to talk, fittingly located on a road called Phil Dirt Drive, according to an arrest report obtained by Oxygen.com.
“She arrived in a white 2010 Cadillac belonging to someone else,” the sheriff’s department stated. “ After she refused to answer a question, the defendant used a front-end loader and dumped a bucket full of dirt on the roof of the driver side half of the car. She was not injured, but the window was open, causing dirt to fill up the air vents, center console, and power windows.”
The arrest report claimed Mills “maliciously damaged” the vehicle.
The victim, who was inside the car during the incident, has not been identified.
The person who actually owns the car came to the site and assessed the damage. He claims the dirt caused about $8,000 worth of damage, according to the arrest report. The owner of the car has not been identified.
"Post-miranda, the defendant admitted to using the front-end loader to dump dirt on the victim's vehicle," the arrest report states. "The defendant stated he did this in an attempt to get [name redacted] to leave him alone."
It’s not clear if Mills has a lawyer who can speak on his behalf at this time. He was booked into jail and and released Thursday on $1,000 bond.
