SCOTTSDALE, AZ - A Cave Creek man is in custody for allegedly breaking into one vehicle and slashing the tires of 21 others parked in downtown Scottsdale.
Scottsdale police say 23-year-old David Luellen has been booked into jail on suspicion of theft, burglary and criminal damage.
Police say officers were called to a bar about 2 a.m. Monday after an intoxicated person began arguing with the bartender and damaged property inside the bar as he left.
Officers searched for the suspect and found him at a parking garage in Scottsdale's entertainment district attempting to break into a parked vehicle.
According to a Scottsdale police report, Luellen admitted he broke into a car he thought belonged to the bartender he had argued with and slashed the tires, but wasn't sure he had the right vehicle so started slashing tires of other vehicles in the area.
