Reminds Me Of Cow Tipping
I always wanted to do this, but some guys beat me to it.
From the San Fran Chronicle: San Francisco police are investigating an unusual crime spree after four people who live in and around Bernal Heights awakened Monday morning to find their Smart microcars had been rolled over by groups of vandals.
The first vehicle was found on its roof on the 200 block of Anderson Street around 1 a.m. Within minutes, another Smart car was rolled near Andersen and Ogden streets.
The third tipping happened a short time later near Bowdoin and Sweeny streets, while a fourth was discovered near Prospect and Coso avenues, said Officer Gordon Shyy, a police spokesman.
Shyy said the suspects were described as seven people in hooded sweatshirts.
All four cars had body damage and broken windows. Investigators were looking into whether the incidents represented a campaign against the tiny vehicles, which weigh just under 2,000 pounds, or were simply acts of vandalism.
Though car tipping has been uncommon in the Bay Area, there have been cases in other American cities as well as Canada and the Netherlands, where hooligans dumped at least one car into the canals of Amsterdam. http://www.sfgate.com/crime/article/4-Smart-microcars-tipped-over-around-Bernal-5383973.php#photo-6132034
