Buffalo Teen Who Claims Car Was Vandalized with Hate Speech Lied
A Buffalo teenager, who claimed his car was vandalized with hate speech graffiti, has been charged with insurance fraud.
Clifton Eutsey, who is 18-years-old, claimed that his vehicle was vandalized with hate speech, lied about the incident. According to WKBW, the teen destroyed his own property. He is now facing a third degree insurance fraud charge. He allegedly vandalized his vehicle in north Buffalo on October 15, 2020.

After a picture of the vehicle went viral, many people were commenting that he did the damage to his 2004 BMW himself. Eutesy told WKBW,
"Who would do that to their own vehicle? Who does that? Nobody does that to their own car. How are you going to get around now if you do that to your car?"
It's not clear how the District attorney determined that Eutesy created the graffiti himself. He was arrested after he left a vehicle running unattended on Erskine Ave. He had two loaded handguns in the vehicle.
