The Blaine Police Department says charges are likely after an elderly couple reported that a purple-haired Instacart delivery driver destroyed their food, apparently over their support for the police.

Instacart is a grocery delivery service that allows users to shop remotely, enjoying delivery from Uber-esque contracted drivers. An elderly couple in Blaine, Minnesota, tried to order some food using the service, but reportedly ended up with goods that were smashed on the ground by a leftist who left a note asking them to “find another slave.”

“Fuck the police racist pigs,” the note added. This outburst was apparently brought on by a sign in the couple’s yard that reads “thank you Blaine P.D.”

Now, police say that the delivery “driver has been identified and the investigation continues with charges likely in the near future.”

Instacart also appears to be conducting its own investigation and the elderly couple has received a full refund for their order.
