terrible! American man cut off 20 shared electric scooter brake lines and has been arrested
According to US media reports on October 3, Florida police reported on Tuesday that a 59-year-old man cut off the brake line of 20 electric scooters in Fort Lauderdale.
The man, now Randall Thomas Williams, has been arrested and faces felony charges.
As of now, there have been no casualties in the incident, and shared electric scooters in the area have been deactivated to prevent injury to users.
The video shows: The arrested man Williams is doing his hand on the electric scooter.
Local police said that at the scene of the crime, they saw that Randall Thomas Williams was working on the brakes of an electric scooter, and he seemed ready to do the same for other electric scooters.
Police officers found 20 electric scooters with brake lines cut in the area, most of which occurred on Saturdays and Sundays. It can be confirmed that the total value of the damaged 20 electric scooters is about 1,400 US dollars (about 10,000 yuan).
More than 140 electric scooters have been damaged in the city since April.
The police said that Williams has been listed as a suspect in these cases. Most of these vandalism occurred within two blocks of William's home, and electric scooters were damaged in the same way.
No casualties have been found in this deliberate case, but one police officer pointed out that these electric scooters can reach a speed of about 27 kilometers per hour. "If there is no brake, it may cause huge physical damage to passengers. Or a fatal accident."
In order to ensure the safety of passengers, the electric scooter company to which the damaged vehicle belongs has been removed from the shared electric scooter in the area. A representative of the company also said that they geographically located the area to prevent passengers from renting electric scooters that could be damaged.
