  • Alcohol and Bulldozer...

    http://www.wral.com/news/local/story/6284025/

    Goldsboro, N.C. — A Wayne County man was arrested Saturday after police said he drove a bulldozer through the mobile home he shared with two roommates.

    Michael Earl Ricks, 47, of 381 Slick Rock Road in Goldsboro, is charged with damage to real property.

    Mary McDuffie and Christy Hughes, Ricks' roommates, said they had been arguing with Ricks. The women said Ricks had been drinking for several hours and got upset when they threatened to kick him out.

    “I knew he was going to do something stupid, but I didn’t think he was going to get a bulldozer and plow my house down,” McDuffie said.

    In the middle of the argument, they said Ricks left the home and got a bulldozer from his nearby employer, Best Sand and Gravel, Inc.

    McDuffie was on the phone with the 911 dispatcher as the bulldozer hit the mobile home.

    "He slams first into the front of the trailer after we got out," McDuffie said.

    Both women got out safely, but said after Ricks ripped the mobile home apart, he chased them down the road to their landlord's home.

    "He was beeping the horn...and coming right at us," McDuffie said.

    Ricks was arrested at the scene. He was being held under a $1,500 bond at the Wayne County jail on Monday.

    The women are now staying with their landlord.

    In the 911 call, McDuffie said she had given Ricks a place to stay after he was released from prison.

    Ricks has been convicted of armed robbery, common law robbery and writing worthless checks, according to State Department of Correction records

    When are people going to learn that alcohol, heavy equipment, convicted robbers, and trailer homes just don't mix? Think of the manpower we'd save if we didn't have to deal with drunken bulldozer drivers running over things intentionally while beeping the horn.

    On a side note, bulldozers have horns?

      Yep, some bulldozers have horns. I dated a crazy girl once who bull dozed my trailer because after we broke up, my trailer was a foot and a half on her property line, so she dozed my trailer back to my property line

          Best. Post. Ever.

          I called my dad, a heavy equipment operator, as I knew he'd enjoy this topic. He confirmed that his 'dozer does, in fact, have a horn. It is currently plugged with mud, though, and is not working.
