Ever see a poorly parked vehicle and think "hm, I wanna smudge mascara all over it?" No? A pissed off teen just outside St. Louis recently did just that. Carlie Hertel didn't like the way a white Infiniti was parked at her local Jewish Community Center and took action, smudging mascara all over the windows. The makeup misdemeanor cost the 18-year-old $3,000. Think of all the products she could have purchased at Sephora!

Hertel left a cute note on the car's owner that included, "How about you park your car like a normal person. Left you some presents in your gay car!" We're pretty sure cars don't have sexual preferences. Kids these days. In a weird twist only appropriate for this hate crime, her mugshot features mascara-laden tears.
