Broomfield police will not release the suspected name until charges are presented. In this case, the officers estimated the damage at $ 2,000. Because of this, the woman could be charged with felony crime.
In an interview with CBS4's Conor McCue, the car's owner, Alan Tweedie, said that Tesla was vandalized Saturday morning when he parked at Legacy High School for his daughter's nearby football game.
"You can feel all the way down to metal, and you can see that it is scraped all the way through the paint," Tweedie said as he showed off the large rip and scattered most of the driver's side of the car.

Tweedie said he found home. That's when he decided to test the car's latest feature: nine motion-activated cameras found in several strategic locations.
"Then I found one where a woman clearly came around with a key in her hand, dug it right in the side, it went all the way up," Tweedie said. "Very angry, very purposeful, definitely trying to hide it."  Tweedie was shocked, he told CBS4 that he did not recognize the woman or know why she did, but said there was no way it was accidental.
He has since submitted a report to Broomfield police, but decided to take the matter into his own hands as well. His video for the key now has more than 100,000 views on Facebook.
"The really speaks to the level of anger of a crime like this that so many people are willing to spread it and share the word and try to help us find it because no one likes it, "Tweedie said." This is my car but the may be your next. ”
Without video, this type of crime would be difficult to investigate due to the usual lack of physical evidence, a Broomfield police spokesman said.
"Turn in, do the right thing," Tweedie said. "Be a better person than you were yesterday when you hid the side of my car."
If you recognize the woman in the video, Broomfield police ask you to call non-emergency dispatch at 303-438-6400 and ask for Officer Lundsford.
