4 year old behavior concerns

My 4 yr old daughter has been acting out lately.  In the past 2 weeks she has urinated on the carpet in her bedroom, urinated in a box next to the toilet, taken a rock and keyed my car, colored on the walls, and colored on other inappropriate items.  She is an incredibly well behaved and compliant child and getting in trouble absolutely devastates her, but it does not seem to change her behavior.  The urinating inappropriately has me very concerned. When I ask her why, she just says I dont know or because her brother told her to.  Which I do not believe her brother is telling her to do it, but he does laugh which I think encourages this behavior some. Please help.

Generally, when a well behaved child who has been developing normally displays such a marked change from basline it is due to some change or disruption in their environment. Once things settle down they return to baseline. Has there been any change of note in the environment?
