Many reasons for tire slashing

A guy arrested for slashing the tires of nearly 50 cars in Boulder, Colorado has an assortment of reasons for the spree: his mother, radiation and the braces he wore when he was a kid.

Police say they spotted the guy crouched behind a police SUV.

They went to investigate and found that a tire was leaking air.

Police say the man told them he was frustrated by his relationship with his mother.

He also blamed radiation from a former nuclear weapons plant in Colorado.

And, if those two reasons weren't enough, he said his desire to slash tires was because he had braces in the 1990s.
