On-Star helps police nab teenage vandal

  • Boynton Beach (FL) – GM’s On-Star system usually helps motorists, but it was the undoing of a Florida teen vandal.  Police in Boynton Beach Florida tracked down a 17-year-old driver who damaged a soccer field by doing donuts on the grass.

    The teen was driving a 2007 GMC Denali and performed several donuts on the Saint Joseph’s School soccer field on November 21 2007.  On-Star received a collision notification and spoke to the teen driver.  Since On-Star conversations and GPS locations are recorded, it was a simple matter for the police to do a little detective work to catch the driver.

    Police estimate the damage at $24,800 and have charged the teen with reckless driving and criminal mischief.
