Police looking for men who tipped over Smart cars in San Francisco

April 07, 2014|By A Times Staff Writer

San Francisco police are investigating after witnesses reported that a group of men tipped over three Smart cars late Sunday or early Monday.

“I thought it looked like they were up to no good and then sure enough they walk up to this Smart car right here, all huddle around it, and then life it up and set it on its hind legs,” resident Brandon Michael told CBS San Francisco.

The pint-sized, two-door coupes were either set on their hind quarters or tipped completely over.

The feat of upending a car listed at roughly 1,800 pounds may take more muscle than merely pushing over a snoozing cow, but the vandals also appeared to know what they were doing, according to one witness.

In an interview with NBC Bay Area, Michael described the surreal image of a car sitting upright on the street, saying they looked like "dachshunds sitting up on their hind legs."

There were no immediate reports of estimated damage as San Francisco police launched an investigation.
