Would You Press Charges

I moved in to my current living situation approximately 4 months ago. There are 3 bedrooms in this home. The owner and her fiancee occupy one, I the other and a mother and her girls are in the third room. Before I moved in the occupants of the third room for the most part had vacated moving to a new boyfriends, however, have not entirely moved their belongings and coming and going in and out of the house as they please, including all hours. To add to that no rent has been paid by them in 5 months. Needless to say, her 18 year old coming and going at 3a, 7a and with boys overnight has not set well. This morning I confronted her about it. She flew into a rage and upon leaving kicked a dent in my new jaguar, which I have had for only two days. Previous to this the car was in perfect condition. Her mother has given me nothing but defensive replies. I maintain that no matter what the issue, no matter what the argument, no matter what our current friendship status is it gave her daughter no right to destroy someone's property. And that she needs to learn that behavior such as this is unacceptable. So I called the sheriff department and I will press charges. Would you have done the same?

I think pressing charges would be proper to discipline the culprit. That dent has now greatly depreciated the value of your car but, more important, people should learn not to destroy other people's property nor harm them. People like your neighbor are among the ills of society.
