(Newser) – South Carolina's Timothy Trammell is accused of causing hundreds of dollars of damage to his ex-girlfriend's car in an act of revenge. He's not accused of being a champion speller. The Smoking Gun reports a sheriff's deputy says he saw Trammell, 36, last Friday spray-painting the word "cheeter" on a car outside the convenience store where his former girlfriend works. After briefly trying to flee, Trammell allegedly admitted to tagging his ex-girlfriend's car with the misspelled accusation "to get back at her." During his arrest, Trammell was reportedly found in possession of marijuana, assorted other drugs, and a fake $100 bill printed with the message "For motion picture use only," according to FOX Carolina. He's been charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, and vandalism.
