Woman Arrested For Stomping On Car (Video)

Police arrested a woman for angrily stomping on a car in the parking lot of an Alabama furniture store on May 1 (video below).

"I prayed about it first, and I slept on it, and I decided it wasn't a good idea," said the woman, 24-year-old Barbara Emily Lowery, WBMA reports. "Then I saw a shovel."

An unknown individual contacted authorities who promptly arrested Lowery and charged her with disorderly conduct. If the car's owner decides to press charges, she may also face criminal mischief charges.

While police say they do not know why Lowery lashed out, an anonymous source told said was a love triangle gone wrong.

Lowery chose to keep her reasons secret. She and the vehicle's owner, Nick Myrick, are allegedly old friends.

"Well I’m not trying to give his personal business out like that," she told WBMA. "I already knew going into it that I would have to face some consequences, and you know it kind of sucks, but like I said I prayed about it and stuff, and I did it anyway." 

Witness Scott Sams uploaded video of the angry Lowery stomping on the car in the parking lot in Cullman, Alabama, onto social media, where it quickly went viral. More than 100,000 people have watched the video.

"I was actually holding a baby in Subway and saw this woman swinging a shovel and then she went to stomping on it and screaming and hollering," said Sams, The Cullman Times reports. "That's when I went out and started shooting the video. I didn't know what else she might do."

In response to the incident, Sams bought Myrick a new windshield. Myrick was working at the time when the vehicle was vandalized. Sams owns a local car repair business.

"We’re blessed and we do our best to try and help people when we can,” Sams said. "He was at work trying to make a living and that happens to him when he’s trying to make money so we’re just trying to do our part to help him out."

Myrick responded with gratitude.

"The car was originally my granddad's and he had given it to my dad, who passed away last July," Myrick said. "Then my granddad passed away just a few weeks ago. The car means a lot to me. That's really cool what Mr. Sams is doing to replace the windshield."
