Repo man accused of ramming into BMW, smashing it with crowbar
HAMILTON, Ohio —
A Hamilton man was arrested after witnesses said he hit and smashed a 2004 BMW.
Forest Park police arrested Agron Destani, 41, on two charges of aggravated menacing.
Andrew Brewster told WLWT he bought the car from Destani in April at Destani’s dealership Ardi Auto Imports on Route 4 in Hamilton. Brewster admitted he had been a few payments behind, but recently sent Destani a $300 payment.
Brewster said he was in the Forest Park Kroger parking lot Saturday, July 1, when Destani slammed his black tow truck into the front driver’s side of the car.
“The front fender was damaged, front bumper was damaged, the headlight housing was damaged, the rims were tore up,” Brewster said.
Brewster and his passenger, Mitchell Hill, said Destani then got out of the tow truck and smashed the front windshield with a metal pole.
“He gets out the tow truck and he swings this crowbar type of thing at the windshield and it literally cracked the windshield,” Hill said.
“I’ve never seen nothing like that in my life so I was like, just go to the police station, just go to the police.”
Brewster said he drove across the street to the Forest Park Police Department and flagged down an officer.
“I just let them handle it from there and it escalated with him, he got into it with a couple sergeants there and they ended up arresting him,” Brewster said.
WLWT reached out to Destani at his home and dealership. Destani’s wife and brother said they were waiting to talk with a lawyer before commenting on the incident.
Destani is scheduled in court July 27.
