Police say a Pennsylvania man caused more than $14,000 damage to several other vehicles when he took a dare to do a "doughnut" with his pickup truck in a bar parking lot. Police say 35-year-old Brett Whitmire's truck kicked up damaging stones as it spun in a tight circle in the parking lot of the Beer Garden in Washington Township on Aug. 18.
