JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A Region 8 teen found something besides gasoline in his gas tank Friday night.

Jonesboro Police are investigating after a teen's car was vandalized.

The 17-year-old said he was driving home when 2 black men and 1 white man stepped out in front of his vehicle.

When the man slammed on his breaks, the men who were walking flipped him off and cursed at him.

The victim continued to drive home.

Later that night, he went outside and found his car had sugar poured in the gas tank and all in the backseat.

There were also curse words scratched in the paint, and the glove box had been gone through.
