Police Believe Woman Charged With Keying Cars Misspelled Whore

| by Jordan Smith

A 20-year-old woman from Stamford, Connecticut, is facing two charges of first degree criminal mischief after allegedly keying her ex-boyfriend’s car and another belonging to a female friend on Aug 7.

Shannon Csapilla is accused of vandalizing the vehicles after suspecting that her ex was involved with the other woman, the Danbury News Times reported. Police said that the two cars had their tires punctured and scratches were made in the paintwork in the early morning.

The word “wore” was scratched on the woman’s car. It was only when police worked out that an “h” was missing that they realized the purpose of the vandalism.

Csapilla sent harassing text messages to her ex-boyfriend, and even told him during one conversation that she was responsible for the damage, according to the Danbury News Times.

But Csapilla denied any involvement in the incident to the police when they took her in for questioning early last week. After leaving the station, she posted a picture of the Stamford police station on Snapchat with the comment, “Stamford police have nothing on me.”

“Unbeknownst to her, we did have enough and we obtained two arrest warrants from a judge and took her into custody at her home yesterday,” said Lieutenant Diedrich Hohn on Friday.

Csapilla did not remain in custody for long, posting $10,000 bond later on Thursday.

However, she has been prohibited from contacting her ex or her friend until the case has been resolved.

“At least the boys were nice enough to buy me dinner in there,” she wrote later in a post on Twitter, including images of food and a police car.

Details on when Csapilla is to appear in court were not available.

This isn't the first case of its kind. In 2011, a man misspelled the word "slut" while vandalizing his ex-girlfriend's car, ABC News reported at the time. Instead, he scratched the word "sult" into the hood of the woman's car.

The suspect, 34-year-old Adam Hall, was charged by police after they asked him to write "You are a slut" on a piece of a paper. When he again misspelled the word, writing "You are a sult" instead, police reportedly knew they had the right guy.
