Default Matt, Hans, me...Anyone else joining the ranks?

Well, last night I headed out to a hick bar in the middle of nowhere with a couple friends around 11PM. Had to park about a mile away since there was such a large crowd.
Long story short, when we were headed back to the car @ 2:15 AM after helping the bar staff clean up (there had been 2 bands playing outside at opposite ends of the parking lot so the lot and whole property were TRASH) we saw a big line of flashing lights, from approx. 7 or 8 squad cars, and they looked to be somewhere near MY CAR!!!!!!!!!!
Get closer, probably 60-70 ft away from my car, but right where the first County Sheriff unit was and one of them asks my friend if he was "McCoy?"
I stopped dead in my tracks knowing something was wrong and I still couldn't even see my car. After 2-3 seconds I respond "I'm McCoy!" He then ask'* if I've got the green Bonneville and right then I just knew something was awry.
He then told my friends to wait by the squad car as he and another officer take me back to check my car out.
We get to my car and all I see is glass everywhere. I was SOOOO friggin P.O. I could hardly even look at the car. I caught a glimpse of a Buick Regal, owned by another friend of mine (first name also Martin) and notice it'* drivers door mirror and drivers door glass gone.
I look back at my car, getting more and more ticked by the moment. I hear one officers radio announe something like "At least 7 vehicles are showing fresh damage...enough to immobilize them".
I see my car, windshield nothing but spiderweb, and slightly concave right where I'd be looking out from the drivers seat. I get closer and by now I'm really up to my forehead with an ever darkening red shade.
I take a walk around the car with an officer to verify all fresh damage. Luckily it only appears to be the windshield.
They then had me head back to the first squad car where my friends are. Told them what I'd seen, and that my blood pressure was going back to somewhat normal after hearing the severity of the damage to other vehicles (trucks with large dents in the cabs and box, broken windows, dented car doors, mirrors broken, tails broken, headlights shattered).
I then had a friend walk back to my car with me to get some of the personal belongings before the car was towed. So when we got the car he started looking at the damage and he'* like "Wow! They must have used a bat or something like that....the A-pillar has a dent in it."
GREAT!!!!! I look at it and it sure does appear to have a dent in it, but it doesn't appear to be too bad. I'm wondering if that'* fixable or if they will have to replace the A-pillar. I kinda leaning towards them fixing it as it looks like they might be able to easy fix.
Anyhow, I'll be going to where the car is today and I'll shoot some pics.
Should be fixed this week as I have Full Coverage with $0 deductable on Glass and Comprehensive with a $500 deductable on Collision.
Now if only they can catch the bastard(*) who did this.

WTF!?!

Now I'm GLAD I came home last night instead of heading out with you.

God only knows what would happened to my car.

I'd do the same thing to the person who did that to my car. At least I'd feel like doing it. I hope everything works out with the car, and they find the person(*) responsible.

I don't live in the best neighborhood. It'* not horrible, but not my ideal place to live. Someone threw a rock through my brother'* window already. I'm hoping one day I don't go outside to see damage to my car.
