A vandal with a bone to pick spray-painted “Mike is a cheater” on an SUV parked in Northeast D.C.
The driver found the huge message on the hood and both sides of the car. The side mirrors were snapped off. The front and back windshields were smashed. Even the license plates were coated with black spray paint.
But it wasn’t Mike’s car.
Veteran Nedra Brantley said she discovered the damage to her red Mitsubishi Outlander Sport on Sunday morning, on 18th Street NE.

"I screamed. I'm surprised nobody in the neighborhood heard me, because I screamed so, so loud, because I didn't expect this would happen," Brantley said Tuesday alongside her car.
She said she has no idea who Mike is and wants police to find the vandal after an apparent case of mistaken identity.
Brantley is working with her insurance company and waiting for a break in the case.
