Police released photos Friday of the vehicle defaced with what appears to be permanent marker. Pictures show the front of the car marked with rambling scrawled messages such as “Tax Payer,” “Protect & Serve The Public,” “Angela Madison is the best,” “Love you” “Rapest”[sic] and “Kansas.”
“Unbelievably sad someone would vandalize Lt. Debra Clayton’s vehicle,” Orlando Police posted on its Twitter account.
