Eagles fan defaces vehicles supporting rival NFL teams

The fierce rivalries in the National Football League's NFC East spilled over into a Stafford County commuter lot Thursday, police said.

Sheriff's spokesman Bill Kennedy said a deputy went to the lot on Mine Road in North Stafford in response to a reported vandalism. A man told police that he returned to the lot about 5:10 p.m. and found the word "Eagles" painted on the left side of his vehicle.

The victim had a New York Giants sticker on his vehicle, Kennedy said. The Philadelphia Eagles are in the same division as the Giants, along with the Washington Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys.

While the deputy was speaking to that victim, a woman walked up and reported that "Eagles" was also painted on her vehicle.

The word was painted over a Redskins helmet on her passenger-side door.

A third vehicle had the same vandalism, Kennedy said. That vehicle had a Redskins logo on the back windshield, and the paint was on the side.

Anyone with information about the incidents is asked to call the Stafford Sheriff's Office at 658-4400 or Crime Solvers at 659-2020.
