NY teen bashes Lamborghini: ‘I thought it would be cool to hit a car with a bat’
A New York teen admitted to vandalizing a 2004 Lamborghini Gallardo with a baseball bat during a snowstorm, police said.
Justin Lorelli was arrested on felony charges in connection with the Jan. 24 videotaped incident, which authorities said caused $17,540.62 in damage to the luxury sports car, reported the Staten Island Advance.
“I thought it would be cool to hit a car with a bat,” the 17-year-old Lorelli admitted, according to police.
Two other suspects have not yet been identified in the case.
Lorelli admitted he was “being stupid” when he struck the sports car parked around the block from his home in Great Kills, police said.
The car’s owner, 27-year-old Brad Millman, said he hoped the teen would get jail time and pay for the damage he caused.
Millman said he bought the car about three years ago as a reminder of his father, Benjamin Millman, a carpenter who was killed in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
“I personally always loved Lamborghinis as a kid, and so did he. We were always into monster trucks and cars, and going to the track,” Millman said. “I bought the one that I could afford.”
“He used to joke around with me, I’ll get you one when you’re older,” he said.
