However, she ran up and started hitting the car with her hands and attempted to open the back door.
When she couldn’t open the locked door she grabbed the back wiper and pulled it off before the victim drove away.
The incident was captured on CCTV and reported to police.
Taylor told police the victim had repeatedly taunted her in the past and those taunts were what she was thinking of when she saw the victim.
No compensation was sought for the damage.
