Police in Michigan say a man who damaged a parked police cruiser while taking selfies on the unoccupied vehicle is remorseful but still could face charges.
The Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety says he approached the car about 3:40 a.m. on Aug. 9 in downtown and took photos in front of the vehicle, kneeling on the hood and lying on the windshield. Police say he then climbed onto the roof of the cruiser before leaving.
An officer returned to the car and found the damage. The suspect's actions were recorded by the vehicle's dash camera. He was last seen skateboarding away.

Police say the 21-year-old from Kalamazoo contacted them Friday after investigators released an image of him from the video and said he didn't intend to damage the car.
