A man in Michigan, is extremely angry after officials demolished his home for no reason.

The incident unfolded in Pontiac on Thursday, after the man’s next door neighbor switched the address numbers on his home so that workers would not demolish his house, which was scheduled for demolition.

The man identified as Mike, said that he planned to rent out the home and is hoping that officials will pay him to rebuild it. Mike’s neighbors however, are happy that the wrong house was demolished.

Mike’s neighbors said that the home had broken windows and squatters lived inside.

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office said that they are investigating the alleged exchange of address numbers that led workers to demolish the wrong house.

The suspect’s evil plot did not work out as the demolition crew returned and demolished his house.
