Man upset over 'lemon' crashes into NH dealer cars

A Massachusetts man who crashed his newly-purchased minivan into six cars at the Portsmouth, N.H., car dealership lot because he couldn't get his money back says he knows what he did was wrong.

Forty-two-year-old David Cross of Salisbury, Mass., was charged with six felony counts of criminal mischief and one count of driving with a suspended license after he deliberately crashed his van into six cars at the Portsmouth Used Car Superstore in July.

In court Monday, Cross told the Portsmouth Herald ( that he was stressed out about money and that he made a bad decision.

But he also blames the dealership for not letting him return what he calls a "lemon." A dealership manager says Cross's wife purchased the van, a 2000 model, "as-is."
