HR Strange But True!
January 06, 2003

A man upset at his former employer is accused of crashing his vehicle into the employer's building in Crystal River, Fla., according to the St. Petersburg Times.

The man, 44-year-old Scott George Houts, drove his 1988 Lincoln through the exterior wall of American Spaceframe Fabricators Inc., the Times reports, citing a police report. The car came to a stop inside, causing several thousand dollars in damage, the report said.

From tire tracks in a grassy area near the parking lot, a deputy from the Citrus County Sheriff's Office surmised that Houts had backed his car into the grass and deliberately drove straight toward the business, according to the report.

The report went on to describe what else the deputy found: an intoxicated Houts, lying on the ground in the parking lot with minor injuries. He told the deputy he had deliberately targeted the business - and proved it by handing the deputy a note, written before the incident, that indicated Houts' anger toward the business's owners as well as a plan to run his vehicle into the building.
