BMW allegedly vandalized by Ramsey Charles Sheard

BMW allegedly vandalized by Ramsey Charles Sheard

After a spate of damage caused to more than 20 cars was reported this past weekend in the normally quiet Pinellas County, Florida, local police were able to apprehend the alleged perpetrator yesterday after following a trail of paint directly to his house.

One of the cars was this BMW 7-Series, which was doused in paint. Others had their tires slashed and one was even set on fire.

The alleged perpetrator was 21-year old Ramsey Charles Sheard, who police arrested after they found a trail of paint leading from a vandalized car in the driveway of one of Sheard’s neighbors directly to his house. There they found empty paint cans and paint residue on some of Sheard’s clothing.

According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, Sheard later admitted to causing the damage, stating that he had been drinking and taking Xanax, a treatment for anxiety disorders, just prior to heading out on his vandalism streak.

We can confirm that he was not dressed as a ninja, although that would be slightly amusing given the recent ninja-related car vandalism.

  1. The customary murder-suicide triggering of anti-depressants didn't happen this time: lucky it was only paint.

  2. what a tool

  3. It's always the fault of something else...I'm sure it can't be a total lack of respect...Anytime one of these losers get's caught the only thing they are sorry about is getting caught. Fortunately most are stupid and get caught. Unfortunately the punishment is so menial he will most likely do it again...Sickening, the decay of our society. What happened to honor, self respect and dignity? I pity those in life who give up, blame everyone else for their problems and serve no purpose but to destroy the lives and property of others...

  4. I agree with Chuck. As soon as this guy got caught he blamed it on the alcohol and the pills, when really it is his fault. Why do we always come up with excuses when we cant excuse our behavior?

  5. this is very uncool.

  6. Ramsey is a good friend of mine!! So all of you need to shut your mouths and quit talking about something you nothing about! Get a life and quit talking smack. man you guys must have no lives. Sit here in your little caht room and talk smack, to make yourselves feel better about your flaws. This is like a chat room for gradeschoolers.
