Yeah, he really taught that boss a lesson. Not!

Nope, I've never been that stupid.

While I would never do such a thing, and agree it’s stupid. I still find it very funny

Really? Was there anyone in the car when the idiot crushed it?

This is a great example of why there should be a mental stability check on potential drivers.

I feel like that would remove probably 30% of current drivers

I seen this on Facebook and thought wow just wow... I can't say that I have ever had one of those days. While I have been very angry at times I am thankful I keep a cool mindset and think things through. I completely understand being upset about not getting paid but yea this guy is seriously off his rocker haha.

Considering the article says Chicago area, white Volvo and a Ferrari it appears to be that the boss was "Russian Mob" associated so it might have led to his frustration but what a stupid decision. Like Packrat said, his action could have also injured or killed someone. His final decision with this company was the worst choice he could have made. Now the real fun starts with his vacation in jail, his resume will also not be so pretty.

That's an excellent observation navypoppop. We cant imagine the limits that people have been pushed to by the greed, deception & outright lawless action of those mobsters. Not excusing or condoning his response but I'll give you an example.

Venezuelan father of 2 had to leave his beloved country due to economic situation there. Why is it bad there greed, deception & lawlessness. He struggles & gets his CDL in FL. Mind you he could barely speak a lick of English. How he passed his pretrip is mind boggling. He signs on as a lease OP with one of these Rusdian mobsters but they're only paying per mile. I think he said it was .58 cents per mile.

I told him they were fleecing him & explained how but I told him to learn the language then make his move. He had 3 trucks back in Venezuela. Things people have to endure to feed a family.

Again, I'm not saying this person decision to "payback" his boss was a well thought out, intelligent move. Just looking at it from their perspective.

The real crime here appears to be that guy’s choice of Ferrari; of all the Ferraris out there, he chose that one? What is that, a hatchback? That thing needed to be crushed.

Its their SUV which they call "Purosangue", which means thoroughbred. Starts around $350K
