Remember this guy? Dude who toppled goblin rock in Utah is looking more like a troll.
Well, good news. He’s getting his. And I for one (I’m sure there are many others) have a big-ass smile on.
Glenn Taylor, who pushed over the rock, and the cameraman, David Hall, face charges of criminal mischief and are accused of intentionally damaging, defacing and destroying property, according to the charging document.
The men likely wouldn’t have been charged if not for the Internet — specifically, the video Hall shot inside the sparse state park and posted to YouTube, then linked up on Facebook.
So, there you go, more proof that your arrogance and ego can get you into trouble. Recall that the mens’ “excuse” was that the precarious nature of the rock formation was a dangerous situation. It was NOT their responsibility or anywhere in their realm of expertise to make that call let alone take matters into their own hands.
He was also kicked out of the Boy Scouts and called on the carpet for a personal legal issue where he claimed he was “disabled” in a car crash.
The moral of this story is, don’t pull this shit. But if you do, please video it and post it to social media so everyone can see your true nature and you can reap the rewards of your actions.
There are apt names for people like this. We all know them so please abstain from repeating them in the comments. Thanks.
