In Rathdrum, Idaho, Brett K. Anderson, 47, does not appear to have seriously thought out his criminal scheme. Anderson is accused of stealing 40 foot sections of irrigation pipe and then driving down the highway with the pipes sticking out the car windows. He proceeded to hit other cars with pipes before being pulled over by police.
Anderson allegedly stole the pipe section from a farm and was trying to bring them to a recycling facility with the pipe sticking out of his Silver Chevy Impala. He might hahve made it if it were not for his whacking cars along the way.
He is now facing changes possession of stolen property and possession of drug paraphernalia as well as petit theft and reckless driving. He hit at least three cars in his modern version of the Ben Hur chariot race.
What I fail to understand is how recycling center can just take such material from people seeking payment without proof of lawful ownership.
