A 59-year-old Florida man is apparently not a fan of electronic scooters—or the people who ride them. Police in Fort Lauderdale released a video they say shows Randall Williams cutting the brake line of a Lime public scooter, reports Gizmodo. Police are investigating whether Williams is the same person who cut the brake lines of about 20 other scooters in the same neighborhood, reports NBC Miami. Williams, whose alleged vandalism was captured by a Ring security video, is charged with felony criminal mischief. (At least the damaged scooters weren't dumped in a river.)
