PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philadelphia police say a New Jersey man vandalized property, including his ex-girlfriend’s car, with pro-Donald Trump graffiti in the hours after the Republican was declared the winner of the presidential election.

Fifty-eight-year-old William Tucker, of Lawnside, New Jersey, is charged with four counts of criminal mischief.

Police say Tucker spray-painted racist and pro-Trump messages on his ex-girlfriend’s car, two other vehicles and a home. Both he and the woman are black.

Surveillance video captured a man spray-painting the hood of a parked car around 5 a.m. on Nov. 9. Police say the woman and her daughter identified him as Tucker.

A man who answered a phone number listed for Tucker and identified himself as a friend told The Philadelphia Inquirer that he had no idea why Tucker might have vandalized any property.
