Call it a bad case of FORK RAGE!
Sure there’s road rage, but this is ridiculous! A forty year-old Seattle man was sentenced to 14 years in prison for assaulting a co-worker with his forklift. The perpetrator had recently found out that his ex-girlfriend had started dating another man at work. Enraged with jealousy, he hopped in his forklift and drove it into the side of the new boyfriend’s truck.
After impact, the boyfriend jumped out of the truck and started to run away. The “angry ex” then proceeded to pull out a gun and shot at the boyfriend 6 times! Fortunately, no one was injured. However, the whole event probably caused the new boyfriend to seriously reconsider his new relationship.
