Boulder, Colorado (The Weekly Vice) -- Alexander Kabelis, a 31-year-old Boulder man was arrested after slashing dozens of car tires. Told police he was angry over mother, having braces, loosing license and radiation.
According to Boulder police, an officer spotted Kabelis squatting down behind a police cruiser at the Community Police Center around 7 pm Thursday night. After noticing the tire had been slashed, the officer took Kabelis into custody - recovering a knife from his pocket.
Knowing the jig was up, Kabelis reportedly went on a venting spree - railing on police about all the things he was angry about.
Investigators say he admitted to slashing the tires of 46 cars since late April - nine of which were police and Sheriff's Office vehicles.
"He said he was frustrated with the relationship with his mother," said Boulder Police spokeswoman Sarah Huntley. "He said he was angry with losing his license a couple of years ago."
Huntley reportedly went on to complain about everything else that had been wrong in his life, including radiation poisoning from a nearby production facility, braces he wore as a teen and once getting "buzzed" by a passing police car. The list of complaints, he explained, were the reason behind his decision to slash tires.
After getting an earful, Boulder police added two more reasons for Kabelis to be angry. They charged him with criminal mischief and carrying a concealed weapon.
