SEATTLE -- Traditional cow tipping is bad enough, and now it may have an ugly spin off. Last week, three smart cars owned by ride share company Car2Go were found tipped on their sides in Seattle.

“Technically, yeah it is cow tipping, but I’m hoping that it doesn't catch on,” says Car2Go customer Daniel Martin.

Police in Denver are investigating five smart car tipping incidents. At least two of them belonging to the ride share service Car2Go.

But -- a spokesperson for the company says they have 750 smart cars on the road in Seattle and more than 75,000 members in the city alone.

The company insists smart car tipping is not a trend but still, they're working closely with authorities.

Well, okay. We'll mooooove on.
