Landlord Paints "Deadbeat Tenants" On Garage

A North Carolina landlord fed up with tenants who refuse to pay their rent painted her criticism on the garage for all to see.

WBTV reports that landlord Vanessa McCants spray painted the words "deadbeat tenants" on a Charlotte house she rents to Shanae Jackson.

McCants says she hasn't been paid the $1300 monthly rent for two months. She's losing the home to foreclosure.

Jackson admits she's not paying the rent. She says she can't afford both the rent and moving expenses.

Jackson called police after painting over the critique on the side of the home's garage. Police refused to charge McCants because spray painting your own property is not a crime.
