Man’s apparent wrath turns destructive in Mountlake Terrace

MOUNTLAKE TERRACE — A Mountlake Terrace apartment complex parking lot turned into a wrecking yard March 8 when a man in a rage smashed his pickup into four cars, police said.

He destroyed his truck and two cars and caused damage to two more vehicles, Mountlake Terrace police Sgt. Doug Hansen said.

The man, 32, reportedly was upset about a fight he’d had with his girlfriend, Hansen said.

He was injured during the incident and was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. The man is expected to recover.

The sound of spinning tires was heard just before 10 p.m. at the Terrace Heights Apartments in the 21500 block of 48th Avenue West, Hansen said.

Police believe the man was able to generate considerable speed to cause the amount of damage. No skid marks were found.

The man likely will have to face more than angry neighbors when he’s released from the hospital.

“I’m sure there will be some consequences,” Hansen said.

Detectives are investigating the man for first-degree malicious mischief.
