Two tires on Councilmember Peter Vallone Jr.'s car were slashed while it was parked in his driveway.

Some tire slashing isn’t leaving one Astoria politician deflated.

Councilmember Peter Vallone Jr. woke up on Wednesday to find that two wheels of his car parked in his driveway had been slashed. A worker at a tire shop confirmed to Vallone that the tires had been cut.

According to the elected official’s Facebook account, his home has cameras installed that may have caught the suspect in action.

“I’m fully cooperating with the NYPD and hopeful that whoever did this is apprehended,” said Vallone.

The crime did not stop the councilmember from heading off t0 Astoria’s P.S. 70 shortly after the discovery to celebrate fall career day with the school’s students.
