Woman Accused of Vandalizing Car -- With Dog

Truth be told, there are more effective ways of vandalizing a car -- via a can of spray paint or a chisel to name a couple. But employing man's best friend as a means of inflicting damage upon a vehicle -- now that earns some style points.

On Sunday evening, a pair of San Francisco police officers headed to the intersection of Kelloch and Velasco to investigate allegations of automobile vandalism. Instead they got a shaggy dog story of sorts.

A woman told police officers that, yes, she was responsible for the gouges on a car -- but it wasn't her intention. She claims a large dog was menacing her small pooch, and as the big dog drew nearer, she placed her dog atop a nearby car and began shouting for help.

While her move kept her lapdog from being victimized, it did result in damage to the car of the sort that anyone owning a dog and hardwood floors can attest to.

Charges were not filed as this is evidently a matter that's between the car owner, the dog owner, and her little dog, too.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
