UPDATE: PAINESVILLE, OH (WOIO) - A punk who cut the brake lines on several cars in the Metroparks was sentenced Tuesday afternoon.

23-year-old Gregory Black cut the lines and then followed his victims to see if they crashed. One of his victims was a pregnant woman with a child safety seat in her vehicle. Luckily, no one was seriously injured.

Black was only charged with four counts of misdemeanor criminal damaging until Judge Cicconetti read the background and victim impact statements.

"I got in my car and started to back out hit the brake pedal.....and had nothing." said one of Black's victims in court.

The judge sentenced Black to the max - 540 days behind bars.

Black said he regretted his actions but failed to apologize to his victims or reveal a motive.
