Arizona man sentenced for shooting his car

Authorities say a man shot his Camaro because it wouldn't start

Associated Press

KINGMAN, Ariz. — A western Arizona man has received a three-month sentence after authorities say he shot his Camaro because it wouldn't start and then refused to come out of his home.

The Kingman Daily Miner reports Lauriano Lawrence Lovato went out to his car April 13, and when it wouldn't start, he fired two rounds through the windshield and into the dashboard.

Neighbors called police, and Lovato was eventually arrested after a lengthy standoff.
