A man was arrested and charged with vandalism after slashing the tires of several cars because he was denied a beer, police in Massachusetts said.

The man slashed the tires on seven vehicles in the parking lot of a pub located on Route 9 on Sunday.

Todd W. Fike, 46, of Framingham, was arrested on Tuesday night.

The man was described as standing 6 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 300 to 350 pounds, with short pants that revealed a prosthetic leg. He was driving a vehicle resembling an ice cream truck.

Witnesses said that the man walked into Owen O’Leary‚Äôs Restaurant & Pub around 9:30 p.m. on Sunday, and was refused a drink by a bartender because he looked drunk. Fike went outside and began slashing the tires of the cars.

Fike has been charged with seven felony counts of malicious destruction of property, driving to endanger and disorderly conduct.
