I'm glad the article clarified it was during a parking dispute twice during the first sentence. I might have forgotten.

Great headline!
2002-09-06 04:16:34 PM  
Bummer. I was hoping for a picture.

Double bummer. I was hoping for more damage. $6K? That's only a fender and a couple of door panels. A pancaked car would have been way cooler.
2002-09-06 05:52:03 PM  
No kidding. Go for the gusto.

Flatten that SOB.

Man, that would've been sweet.
2002-09-06 06:31:43 PM  
I like the steamroller guy's mentality.
I can relate.
2002-09-06 06:32:52 PM  
I'm *bigger* and I've got more insurance...
2002-09-06 06:32:52 PM  
that RULES
2002-09-06 06:34:35 PM  
hmmm, during a parking , who would have thought that?
2002-09-06 06:34:56 PM  
"It's K-K-K-Ken- he's C-Coming to K-Kill me!
Here at delta house we have a saying:
"don't get mad.....get even!"
gotta love that one- but justice truly isn't done without
a picture!
2002-09-06 06:35:04 PM  
Wow, so Frantz didn't surrender.

So, whattaya think. Frantz is currently unemployed?
2002-09-06 06:35:07 PM  
There's a pic to show up sometime soon on the net... I hope
2002-09-06 06:36:20 PM  
Very dissapointing. No pic and little damage. I guess that's why there's no pic.
2002-09-06 06:36:30 PM  
haha i like his 'his lexus drove into me' defense.
I'm just going to start punching like this, and if you get hit in the face, its not my fault.
2002-09-06 06:37:03 PM  
Nice Fish Called Wanda reference
2002-09-06 06:37:50 PM  
What is up with dudes in their 50s? I have more run-ins with these baby boomer assholes than with people my own age or younger.

I'd hit it!
2002-09-06 06:40:52 PM  
I heard the dude was a hermaphrodite.
2002-09-06 06:41:17 PM  
Kudos !!!
2002-09-06 06:41:56 PM  
i'd drive it... maybe, but i like my steamroller too much ha ha ha ha
2002-09-06 06:42:44 PM  
during a parking dispute, causing thousands of dollars in damages during a parking dispute

I love the well educated and well-spoken.
2002-09-06 06:43:02 PM  
Should we start a defense fund for the heroic construction worker?
2002-09-06 06:43:16 PM  
This has to be in the top ten of every guy's list of things that he would like to do with vehicles. I know it's in mine. Right up there with taking a huge truck and smashing every little pipsqueak who nosed his stupid little yuppie car onto a busy boulevard hoping to get someone to stop and let him in.
2002-09-06 06:43:38 PM  

Now only if he flattened that thing. Damn, I could use one of these here in Silicon Valley to deal with the SUV's.
2002-09-06 06:44:56 PM  
I have found my calling ... "accident reconstructionist"
2002-09-06 06:45:59 PM  
Lexus drivers tend to be full of themselves but have no imagination. Boring lookalike cars. Is it a Camry or an Accord or a Hyundai? Who can tell until you read the badges. Without the L on the back, you would only know the car was from a Japanese or Korean company. Rolling drek.
2002-09-06 06:46:18 PM  
Oh frigging great. Now the liberals are going to start calling for steamroller control. I can hear them now saying "If it saves just one Lexus".
2002-09-06 06:46:27 PM  
Frantz said he got on his roller and was going down the road when Hay's car drove into him.

Trooper Shawn Noonan, an accident reconstructionist assigned to the Fern Ridge barracks, said based on his expertise and the damage to the Lexus, it's impossible to believe the Lexus hit the roller.

What a beautiful piece of deduction: You mean not even a Lexus can't drive sideways, pushing itself up onto two wheels when it runs into solid objects like steamrollers??
2002-09-06 06:46:58 PM  
Don't mess with the steam roller guy.

I can almost hear a new budweiser song.
2002-09-06 06:47:17 PM  
not even a lexus CAN I meant to say...d'oh
2002-09-06 06:51:31 PM  
"simple assault"? those things look hard to drive to me.
2002-09-06 06:52:16 PM  
I'll stick to my VW Microbus, thanks.

German engineering > korean? Japanese? what the hell is that kia rip-off anyway?
2002-09-06 06:53:10 PM  
Steamrollers don't crush cars...people do.
2002-09-06 06:54:25 PM  
I agree with the steamroller dude. If some asshat in a Lexus pissed me off, and I had access to one, I'd use it, too.
2002-09-06 06:54:57 PM  
I use a steamroller every night.

Made it out of a wooden bat.

It's basically like being cracked in the head with a bat...same facial expression afterwards.

Just long enough for the smoke to cool off...


OH...the CONSTRUCTION steamroller!!!
2002-09-06 06:56:28 PM  
Millions of children run over a car every year in a steamroller. These accidents don't have to happen. Write your legislator today and ask him to support the new bill to increase the wait time before you can buy a steamroller.
2002-09-06 06:58:25 PM  
I envy the driver of the steamroller.

I once bought a bong at a rummage sale...I was only a kid...thought it was a pencil holder.

No wait, that was an epsiode of The Simpsons.


(smacking lips and drooling)
2002-09-06 07:03:19 PM  
funniest headline in a while.
2002-09-06 07:05:30 PM  
If your gonna lie, say the asshat in the Lexas pulled in front of, not something that implies the car drove sideways.
2002-09-06 07:05:54 PM  
I'd like to try that on cars
2002-09-06 07:06:59 PM  
unfetchable my ass...

2002-09-06 07:07:49 PM  
That's a nice sir,

but you're a total asshat.

Grey Poupon syrup?
2002-09-06 07:09:29 PM  

That's a nice car sir,

but you're a total asshat.

Grey Poupon syrup?
2002-09-06 07:10:45 PM  
That's one way to iron out your differences.
2002-09-06 07:15:31 PM  
Nice sidebar. Spread Eagle Realty? Hm. My mind must be on the upcoming weekend...
2002-09-06 07:15:56 PM

2002-09-06 07:16:12 PM

loss of job: $40,0000 /yr
Satisfaction : PRICELESS

This man is a hero, he needs to get a Congressional Medal of Bad A$$ or the civilian equivalent. I farking hate realtors. They're right up there with lawyers in terms of people who are too damn lazy and/or stupid to work hard, get a real job, and earn their own money. Instead they leech off of the rest of us and the comings and goings of our daily lives and have the nerve to think they're something special or that they actually have a "profession". I'm just disappointed that the guy didn't make it all the way across the car with the little bastard in it.

I can see how the argument went now:
(a$$clown realtor drives up directly blocking construction driveway clearly in use).
Frantz: "Hey buddy you gotta move this car!"
Hay: "Fark you you farking Gorilla I don't have to move shiat! I'll make more money just opening the door to sell this house then you'll make all year! Hahaha! Oh yeah, and I'm 10x smarter than you even though I have a little dick!"

Our hero, Frantz, then proceeds to smack the little pricks car. The end.

A construction worker was charged with aggravated assault after he allegedly crushed a 1999 Lexus with a pavement roller DURING A PARKING DISPUTE, causing thousands of dollars in damages DURING A PARKING DISPUTE Aug. 27.

Wow, who wrote this article? Redudancy galore.
2002-09-06 07:39:18 PM  
Death_Zero the answer is farker: Dept of Redundancy Dept.
