For want of a shoe, man kicks out cop car window

A man whose temper got the best of him kicked out a police car window when he couldn't find his shoe.

Police struggled with the man who was involved in a domestic violence incident shortly after midnight today in a neighborhood near El Camino Avenue and the Capital City freeway.

Finally able to get him into a police squad car, the man became irate because he only had one shoe, he told officers.

According to a police activity log he proceeded to kick out a patrol car window. He then apologized when he realized his missing shoe was on the floorboard of the car all the time, according to police.

The man was charged with vandalism to a police car.
