A man dressed in woman’s clothing repeatedly crashed his car into a Detroit area lingerie store on Saturday in a bizarre act of revenge.

According to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, Jeremy Paul McIntosh, 27, was angry at the store for refusing to give him a job.

Wearing “facial makeup, lipstick, blue Capri pants, red flip-flops, a flowery blouse and a matching flowery women’s bra,” according to Oakland County UnderSheriff Michael McCabe, McIntosh was arrested on Saturday for ramming his vehicle into the Intimate Ideas lingerie store in Commerce Township, 25 miles northwest of Detroit.

Damage to the store is estimated at around $3,000 (£1,510).

According to the Detroit Free Press, McIntosh entered the store around 9:00 p.m. on Saturday and told a store employee he was going to run his car into the building.

The employee told police McIntosh said he was upset because he had applied for a position at the store in January and was turned down.

After speaking to the employee, McIntosh returned to his vehicle and began crashing it into the side of the store.

Police say McIntosh hit the building about seven times, according to the Detroit Free Press, and completely totalled his car.

McIntosh told police officers he committed the crime because he’s homeless and had nowhere to go but prison.

He is currently being held in the Oakland County Jail on charges of malicious destruction of property and reckless driving.

McIntosh is still seeking a lawyer to represent him, according to McCabe.

No one was injured in the incident.
