A man who was angry that his boss fired him from his job as a tow truck driver, took his boss’ truck and drove it into a river, police in New Jersey said.
Bayonne Police said that 55-year-old John J. Schneider, stored his boat at the auto body shop of his employer until he was fired.
The owner of the auto body shop, 60-year-old Leon Lewinson, told Schneider to move the boat off the property. Lewinson allowed Schneider to use his truck and a trailer to tow the boat off his property.
Lewinson said that he and a mechanic followed Schneide, in order to help him unload the boat.
When Schneider reached the river where he was supposed to dock his boat, he drove straight into the water as his horrified boss watched.
Schneider was able to get out of the truck unharmed. He started screaming profanities and pulled down his pants to reveal his behind.
Lewinson called police, who arrested Schneider on charges of criminal mischief and defiant trespass. The truck and the trailer were completely destroyed, while the boat was impounded by police.
