A group of teenage thugs that went around town body slamming hoods of cars as part of the growing “Put ’em in a coffin” trend, instead got a lesson in instant karma.
A friend filmed the teens as they walked through town at night, stopping at random cars and jumping onto the hoods. The teens rotated their bodies mid-jump, and then slammed themselves down on the hood of the vehicles.
You are supposed to cross your arms to maximize your impact on the hood — and thus maximize the damage to the car, according to those who describe this vandalism technique, which is popular on Vine.
The teens in this neighborhood had carried out a spate of such vandalism in recent weeks, causing “hundreds of thousands” in damages, according to police.
The “youth” with the camera kept uttering words his friends should have listened to (“Dumb nigga sh*t“) and avoid the bad fate that awaited them. No such luck.
As they roamed the street smashing hoods, a black Impala pulled up with tinted windows and its lights on. The two main “slammers” pretended that they were going to body slam the Impala before skipping over it and moving on. It never occurred to them who might be inside that darkened vehicle.
They soon found out.
They choose the two cars parked behind the Impala, and barely made it past them before it whipped around off camera, and two police officers got out and began chasing them. The teens were apprehended and arrested immediately.
Reddit ridiculed the teens after video of the incident was posted online.
“What I don’t get is how they didn’t realize that was a cop car…. I mean a blacked out Impala pulls up quickly and parks next to you right after your large group of friends did some illegal s**t,” Redditor IRaceCars said. “Yet they don’t get out of the car and are staring you down. So the best course of action is to play around like you’re going to jump on their car, then proceed to jump on the car directly behind theirs.”
“This is one of the dumbest trends I’ve seen on vine. Its called ‘put em’ in a coffin’. In case you want to see more stupid people jumping on things,” Reddit commenter JumpSalty said.
