Be careful how you treat the guy who drives the bulldozer!

with one comment

An apparent disgruntled worker has been blamed for driving a bulldozer into a Houston auction house and causing $1.5 million in damage.

Officials with Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers are not sure why 52-year-old Lynn Benson of Houston was upset. The lot inspector operates the bulldozer as part of his regular duties.

Nobody was hurt Monday night after the auction business closed for the day and Benson allegedly went on his destructive spree. The building was heavily damaged, including a broken water main and destroyed office equipment.

Benson was being jailed Wednesday on a charge of criminal mischief

Operations vice president Frank Wilson says company officials want to help Benson, who was arrested at the scene.

I’d want to help him, too. He might get pissed-off, again!
