People Driving On This Man's Lawn Driving Him Nuts - He's Getting Revenge

Around the world, people regularly feel powerless against neighborhood bullies who deliberately disrupt the lives of locals. The disruption can come in many forms and includes: inconsiderate music playing, dangerous behavior on the street and trespassing or the destruction of property. One man from the quiet town of Pevely in Illinois decided to enact his own brand of justice after his front lawn was repeatedly churned up and damaged by ‘hooning’ car drivers. However, the man would later come to regret his actions after he was issued a fine by Pevely police officers.

After waking up numerous times to find his front lawn torn up by tire tracks, the unnamed man built several booby traps to place in the front lawn. The booby traps in question were thin wooden boards, painted brown for camouflage and spiked with long, sharp nails. In a statement to KMOV, a St. Louis television station, the Pevely Chief of Police, Ron Weeks, said the booby traps “were painted black and they were buried in the ground, and it made it very difficult to see.” It is believed that the police were alerted to the dangerous traps after concerned neighbors saw the disgruntled man placing them in his yard.

After the police collected and removed the traps, the unnamed man was issued a fine. Police also informed him that a portion of the damaged front lawn actually belonged to the Pevely Local Council. The controversial story has gained huge traction online and opinions have been split about whether the man’s actions were justified.

One online commentator has spoken out in support of the man’s right to defend his property, saying: “He should have done it without telling anyone. I don’t think the town has a right to stop him and certainly not to fine him. he should get a lawyer and sue the town for big money just to make a point that he has a right to protect his property. The town should at the very least fix his lawn and put up a nice fence to keep these a**holes off his lawn.”

However, other people have pointed out that the traps pose a risk to innocent walkers and even children running around the neighborhood barefoot with one person emphasizing that “Big rocks painted green would do the job and be safe.” It remains to be seen if the highly publicized story has made the inconsiderate drivers rethink their actions.
