CHARLOTTE, North Carolina – Retired Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis turned to social media on Tuesday to find people who apparently broke into his garage, stole and destroyed his expensive McLaren.
“What’s going on with the IG family, so I need your help,” Davis wrote on Instagram. “If any of you recognize any of these idiots, you’ve decided it’s a good idea to walk into my house and go through all my cars and even steal and ruin my McLaren. I offer a cash prize for anyone who can help. identifies who these guys are! More videos coming later. “
As of Tuesday morning, it was unclear whether Davis had filed a police report under his name. Mecklenburg County Police officials said they were aware of the alleged burglary, but the incident took place in Union County, outside their jurisdiction.
Pictures of the McLaren 720S show a fault in the left rear of the supercar. The cheapest McLaren 720S starts at $ 299,000, according to Edmunds.com.
As promised, Davis posted more videos and photos of his ruined McLaren. The videos also include a nearly cut-out of Davis in uniform in his № 58 Panthers uniform.
Davis retired as a Carolina player in March after spending his last season in the NFL with the Washington football team and former Panthers coach Ron Rivera. Davis spent the first 14 of his 16 seasons with the Panthers, was a leading player in the team’s career and the first player in NFL history to successfully return from three ACL operations on the same knee.
In 2014, Davis won the Walter Peyton Award for Man of the Year for his outreach through his Dream Protection Foundation, which focuses on improving the quality of life of disadvantaged children.
