Considering that it had been 52 years since Cleveland’s last major sports championship, the celebration that followed the Cavaliers’ 2016 NBA Finals win over Golden State was a peaceful one. But there was one casualty: a police cruiser parked near Quicken Loans Arena.

During the championship parade in downtown Cleveland, a few fans stomped on the hood and roof of the vehicle, and the city declared the car a total loss.
