*Can you say “spoiled rotten?” Or maybe “he crazy” is a more accurate description of a 22-year-old “man” who pushed a brand-new BMW into a river.
We’re sure you’re scratching your head and asking yourself WHY? It’s because he didn’t like the car he received as a birthday gift. According to the Times of India, the man wanted a Jaguar instead.
The report said that a man named Akash was so pissed off upon being gifted a BMW 3 Series two months ago that he reportedly drove the vehicle to a river in Haryana, India, then deliberately pushed the luxury car into the river and watched the strong currents carry it downstream.
“Akash was demanding for a Jaguar car from his father, but when his father failed to buy one, he threw away his BMW in a fit of anger,” a local police official said. “His family had sold the Innova they had received from his in-laws to buy him the BMW.”
Fortunately, the young man has an excuse for his totally irrational action. Police say his parents claim the man has an undisclosed mental issue.
“I wanted to give my son a birthday present,” he told a reporter. “We could only afford to give him a BMW, while he kept on insisting that he be given a Jaguar. He said the [BMW] was too small but we thought he will be okay. We never imagined he would do anything like this.”
On the other hand, Akash’s father seems to have a problem dealing with reality. He is disputing the facts; he says his son’s car ended up in the waterway after Akash made a defensive swerve to avoid hitting an antelope.
Video from the scene shows the car floating above a pile of tall grass as locals, divers and an earthmover try to pry the submerged car out of the water. Officials don’t plan on making any arrests since no complaints were filed.
