Sons smash dad’s car with hammer after he refused to share his EuroMillions winning with them

Sons smash dad’s car with hammer after he refused to share his EuroMillions winning with them

What would you do if your father didn’t share his lottery winnings with you? Would you smash his brand-new car? That’s what two brothers did to their father when he won a 3.1-million-pound EuroMillions jackpot and kept it for himself. 

Alex Robertson was part of a 12-member bus driver association whose members split up 38 million pound in winnings in 2012. 

Reportedly, the Glasgow dad refused to share the money with his two sons, William and Alex Jr. giving them only 200 cigarettes instead. 

Alex Jr., 45, describes what happened next. 

“We ended up taking hammers to his two new 4×4 Shoguns. 

“We walked up his driveway at 11 o’ clock at night and put two claw hammers through the windows of the car.” 

“We then reported ourselves to the police.”

“This lottery win was the worst thing that ever happened to us… it ripped our families apart.”

Alex was planning to use the money to take his 78-year-old mother to see her twin sister in Australia, a trip he felt would be life-changing. 

But the winnings ended up being life-changing in an entirely different way. 

Apparently, William became so angry, he began harassing his father and sending his threatening texts. 

It got so bad that William ended up being charged with harassment. 

He was due to stand trial in Northampton, but the case was dropped when 77-year-old Alex Sr. decided against flying in from Spain to testify. 

The Robertson’s story doesn’t recount the first-time lottery winners that did more harm than good. 

In 2009, an Ayrshire man became angry after his association decided they didn’t want to give any of their $100,000 winnings to his wife even though he had picked the lucky numbers.
