Man picks fight with parking deck arm, police would like to personally congratulate him

Greenville police are hoping the public can help identify the man who damaged a downtown parking deck arm Monday night.

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – Greenville police would like to meet a man who won a fight with a downtown parking deck arm Monday night.

Police say they aren’t sure what the 4th Street parking deck arm did to make the man want to pick a fight with it last night, but did say the man did win the preliminary round of the bout by running through it.

Police say they are hoping that the parking deck arm will win in the end with a little help from the public in identifying the man in the pictures so they can personally congratulate him.

Police said the vandalism happened on Monday.

“We’d like to find the little guy to help repair the arm and to give him a hug because obviously, he was having a bad day,” said police on Tuesday. “‘Tis the season of love, after all.”

This is not the first time the arm has lowered itself in defeat, last April a woman wearing mom jeans challenged the parking deck arm and also emerged victorious, as the arm is not physically able to fight back.

Police remind potential criminals that there are hundreds of cameras throughout Greenville, not to mention those people who capture stunts like these and post them online.
