He really, really wanted to drive away.
According to the Bangor Daily News, Michael Harman, 48, of Millinocket, Maine was none too happy with getting a boot placed on his pickup truck. So he tried to drive away anyway.
In an effort to scofflaw three unpaid parking tickets, Harman damaged a $500 “Denver Boot” device that he will be responsible for replacing.
He also didn’t get away. Police arrived, and the truck was seriously damaged in the failed attempt to reenact a famous scene from The Simpsons.
Homer also damaged the family car, if you’ll remember, but he got away.
