A 13-year-old boy was arrested for vandalizing his mother’s car.

The teenager of Dayton, Ohio, vandalized his mother’s car and broke the windshield after she took away his cellphone.

The mother said that she took away the phone from her son after he refused to clean his room around 6:00 p.m. on Friday.

After she took the phone, the mother said that the boy spat on her and hit his stepfather in the back with a big bottle.

The 13-year-old boy then went out of the house and jumped onto his mother’s white Honda Accord. He stomped on the roof and smashed the windshield, causing major damage to the car, according to the police report.

The teenager then ran away, saying that he would not return. However, he returned home a few hours later. The boy’s mother called police, and the boy was arrested. He was placed in a juvenile detention center.
