A city contractor in New Orleans was the victim of a vicious vandalism attack after he discovered that his $200,000 Lamborghini was set ablaze. Although police didn’t officially make the connection, it is believed that the vehicle was torched because the contractor was hired to remove a series of statues related to the Confederacy.

HuffPost Black Voices reports:

The man hired by the city of New Orleans to remove four Confederate statues has had his 2014 Lamborghini Huracan set on fire and reduced to rubble.

According to authorities in Baton Rouge, the St. George Fire Department found the $200,000 vehicle ablaze early Tuesday morning behind David Mahler’s company, H&O Investments, LLC. The city announced a few days ago it had hired Mahler to remove the monuments, which symbolize Confederate history.

The car’s tire rims and seat frames are the only things suggesting that it had once been a luxury ride.

“This is just a possession and can always be replaced, but someone has something to say to us,” Mahler’s wife wrote on Facebook Tuesday.

Last month, the city council ruled in a landslide vote to remove the statues with New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu suggesting moving the items to a public viewing area at a later time.

Mahler and his employees have since backed away from the project for their own safety.
