A 22-year-old man-child drove his brand new BMW 3 series sedan into a river because he was upset it was not a Jaguar.
Local authorities in Yamunanagar, India said the incident happened Aug. 10 in the Western Yamuna Canal, according to the report.
The luxury car was a birthday gift from his parents, which they purchased after selling another car in order to purchase it, the Times of India reported.
“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 told the outlet. “His family had sold the Innova they had received from his in-laws to buy him the BMW.”
Police claimed that the parents said their son suffers from undisclosed mental health issues, according to the Times. Officials reportedly don’t plan to make an arrest, as no complaints were filed.
“Sources said that after pushing the car into the canal, Akash made a video and forwarded it to his parents,” the newspaper reported.
After the report went public, his father attempted to clarify saying that his son really tried to avoid an antelope and that’s how the car ended up in the river. It sounds to us like the dad is trying to clean things up for insurance purposes.
