So on friday night I was at a friends apartment having a good time with a bunch of friends. My car was parked on the side of the street about 4 feet from the end of one of the driveways. Clearly no room for anyone to park behind me... Well after I had been there for a couple hours or so a buddy of mine comes in and tells me that my car has been hit. I walk outside to find my trunk has been smashed in and one of the tailights is broken. (I'll put some pics up later once I get them loaded onto my computer.) My back bumper was barely hit, so whoever hit me is driving a truck or suv, that sits higher up. We asked around to everyone at the apartment but no one had any idea and there was alot of people who came and went that night. I only have liability on it so I knew my insurance didnt cover it. Well I was pissed, and tired (it was around 2 in the morning) so I went home, without calling the cops. My dad talked to my insurance agent the next day who said we really didnt need a police report cuz my insurance didnt cover it anyway. So I have to figure out who did it somehow...
Well today a couple of friends told me there was someone there who may have done it. She drives a dark green CRV, which is the same color of paint that is scratched into my bumper. She also came after I did, and left before I did... Sounds to me like she did it but I have yet to look at her car. If she did it, I'm pretty sure she'll admit it. So what should I do? Am I screwed without the police report? And I want to get every penny I can from this, anyone who does that kind of damage to a car and runs deserves what they got comin... Has anyone ever had any similar situations like this happen?
i'd call the cops asap and tell them what happened, although i don't know how well it'll hold up as it's not right at that time...

I would get a quick estimate for the car and then confront her about it (if her car is damaged). I would tell her to pay the bill, or you are going to go to the cop about her hit and run.
I would do this ASAP since she could have her vehicle fixed quickly.

dude you should have called the cops before you moved the car. I had this happen to me a few years ago. I didnt notice the damage until i got to work, called the cops and they said because i moved the car there was no way for them to tell if it actually happened the way i said it did.
File a report, tell them you have an idea of who did it, and they can match the paint. Narsis' situation was unfortunate, but I'm sure you still have a case. If nothing else, you could take her to small claims.
Best way to cheat on deadlifts...
Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial
