77-year-old Thomas A. Grooms is charged with vandalism after he caused $1,455.95 in damages to a stranger’s vehicle in a storage confrontation in 2020. The victim, Lauren Craven, was driving on Brightwood Ave when Grooms suddenly stepped out of his vehicle along the roadway and motioned for her to stop or slow down. Feeling uncomfortable, she says she slowed and moved to the right to create distance from Grooms. Grooms reportedly moved aggressively toward her vehicle, striking it until it was damaged, as recorded on the victim’s dash cam. She didn’t immediately want to prosecute, believing in good faith he would pay for the vandalism. When the issue remained unresolved, she sought the vandalism charge. He was booked on the warrant this week.
