Tesla cameras capture woman repeatedly grabbing car in parking lot in Louisiana
A Tesla dashcam recorded the moment an elderly Louisiana woman grabbed the car, causing nearly $ 8,000 in damage after an argument over a parking spot.
In the clip, Tesla owner Amanda Aubin is seen parking in an empty spot in Baton Rouge, while being followed by a red vehicle.
A woman in a pink shirt with half her face covered with a black mask, then stops and gets out of her red car after parking Aubin.
The same woman then walks past Aubin’s Tesla and uses a wrench to scratch the vehicle.
A minute later, the woman walks around the car again and deliberately leaves more damage on the door before walking away.
The woman is shown entering the vehicle door a total of three times.

The wife and Tesla owner were targeting the same parking spot a few minutes before the incident, but the Tesla owner secured the space.
The incident happened shortly before 10 a.m. on September 22.
Aubin said WAFB that a few minutes earlier she and the woman were aiming for the same parking spot, however, Aubin was able to secure the spot first.
“You know, we both signaled, and I got there first, looks like. And I just parked, and she pulled over to another place. So I was like, okay, no problem, ”Aubin said at the point of sale.
Aubin had an appointment and parked his Tesla outside the Baton Rouge clinic. When she returned just 45 minutes later, she found the scratches on her car door.
It’s petty and childish. I mean, it’s from a grown woman. I’m a grown woman. It’s ridiculous. I mean, she could have left me a note, if she was so mad at me, ”Aubin said.
Aubin’s vehicle was left with several scratches and “fairly deep cuts”. She said the repair was $ 7,650 and she has since filed a report with police.

“Creating someone’s car is crazy. The fact that I didn’t think, she knew, that she was being recorded. But it’s all handed over to the cops, ”she told WAFB.
Aubin’s Tesla was in “sentry mode,” a security feature that monitors suspicious activity when the car is parked.
Tesla’s come with front, rear, and left-and-right door cameras that alert owners when a threat is perceived.
When a suspicious movement is detected, the car reacts according to the severity of the threat.
If this is considered a “significant threat,” the car’s cameras will record activity, the alarm system will activate, and the owner will receive an alert from the Tesla app, according to the company’s website.
In July, Tesla’s Sentry Mode recorded an angry driver of a red Volkswagen vandalizing the high-tech car in Florida.
The dark-haired, bespectacled man driving a red Volkswagen unknowingly looked directly into the Tesla’s security camera when he slammed his car door multiple times into a woman’s Tesla.
Then he saw the side of the Tesla scratched with something sharp as it was parked in a parking lot in Altamonte Springs.
Tesla owner Melissa Mel posted the video on her Facebook page and said: “I’m trying to publicize this guy’s face for committing a criminal act against my car on July 4th while I was in the job.”
“It shouldn’t be a ‘thing’ to damage someone’s car,” she said.
This incident and others like it were recorded and posted on the Wham Baam Teslacam Twitter page, which has nearly 8.00 followers.
