A truck driver got revenge against his boss by spilling merchandise from his trailer on a highway after being fired.

The truck driver opened the back door of his semi-trailer and drove off, causing a large amount of corn to spill on a highway in Nebraska.

The Gage County Sheriff’s Office were called to the scene and pulled over the driver.

Police learned that Darren Walp, 36, of Crum Lynne, Pennsylvania, exchanged some text messages with his boss, before receiving a text message, saying that he was fired.

Walp became angry and decided to take revenge by getting rid of the truckload of corn that he was transporting from Reynolds, Nebraska, to Hanover, Kansas.

Police said that approximately 1,000 bushels of corn, which is worth nearly $3,100 was spilled on the highway.
