Cops: Enraged friend whacks windows of wrong car with bat

A Florida man wanted to take some revenge on a friend. So he took a baseball bat to the windows of his target’s car, authorities said.

Or at least what he thought was his friend’s car.

It wasn’t.

The victim heard smashing sounds and saw a car being whacked that was a similar model, and color as his, he told authorities.

Ryan T. Smith, 22, was arrested Tuesday in Manatee County and charged with felony criminal mischief, according to

Manatee deputies say Smith had a “personal vendetta” against his friend.
