A FUMING chip shop boss has told how she got revenge after a bitter parking row boiled over.
Harleen Sohal was livid after local resident Sharon Myers parked her red Suzuki Swift outside her HK Fish Bar in Scunthorpe, Lincs.
The 32-year-old grabbed a black marker and scrawled "Do Not Park Here" across the car's windscreen, bonnet, driver's door and window.
Her fury also extended to a second car nearby which was daubed with the words "Do not park here looser (sic)".
However, her revenge came back to bite her.
CCTV footage captured Halreen in the act and was immediately handed to cops who launched a criminal damage probe.

But unrepentant Harleen yesterday insisted: "She's aware it's my space. I've got the lease.
"She doesn't even live here. She lives across the road.
"I did write on the car, I'm not denying it. You can wipe it off, simple. I didn't scratch it or touch her car.
"She's just made it into a big issue.

"If she's going to park on my land next to a sign saying park at your own risk, why is she causing an issue?
"I don't know what to do. I'm at my wits' end.
"I understand it's not right but for how long will it go on?"
She claims Sharon responded by leaving a note on her car which read: "Stay away from my car, you wet wipe."
The feud showed no signs of cooling as mum-of-five Sharon, 53, accused Harleen of regularly blocking her in when she parks in the space.
The takeaway driver said: "It's a public space. You can park five or six cars there.
"I'm nervous about leaving my car there now because you don't know what she's going to do.
"Hopefully after this we can find out exactly who owns the land.
"The law is the law and its criminal damage and you can't get away with that.
"I want people to be aware it's a criminal offence and this person isn't allowed to go around damaging vehicles because people are parked there."
A sign next to the space reads: "Private car park. No public right of way. All vehicles parked at their user's risk."
Sharon, of Scunthorpe, said: "I was absolutely fuming when I checked the CCTV.
"She's taken the law into her own hands and gone on a rampage."
Humberside Police said: "Officers are investigating reports of criminal damage after a car is believed to have been graffitied on Wednesday.
