Some People Just Punch the Wall

John Paul Jones Jr. said he was angry and fed up. He had spent two days doing repairs on his Senoia, Ga., house. “I’ve been out of work for the past year and a half. Needed some work,” said Jones. “It didn’t pay anything, but hey, it kept me busy.” He said he had been frustrated about not being able to sell his house, and then a phone conversation with his wife made him so angry he took action. He got into his truck that was in the backyard and drove it to the front yard — through his living room. “The police came out here, I told them I needed air conditioning,” said Jones. “They said, ‘open a window.’ I told them it wasn’t enough. As you can see, I had a nice breeze.” While Jones’s truck suffered a broken light and some scratches, the truck is still running just fine, and Jones is not being charged with a crime since it was his own truck he drove through his own house.
