SPOKANE, Wash. – Spokane County Sheriff's says a 56-year-old man was so incensed at a $70 repair bill he was owed, he rammed his truck into a Spokane church.
The Spokesman-Review reports that Mark Heitman, a parishioner of the Country Crossroads Church, was arrested on Tuesday after he slammed his truck into the church building and ransacked the inside.
The Sheriff's Office says the tirade was apparently over a $70 repair bill the church owned Heitman for electrical work he had done. Heitman allegedly smashed nearly window, television, computer and light fixture inside the church.
Pastor Dan Eubank says there was thousands of dollars in damage.
Eubank tells the paper he tried to pay Heitman with a check, but Heitman wouldn't take it and he became enraged he couldn't get the payment in cash.
Heitman was booked into the Spokane County Jail for investigation of second-degree burglary and malicious mischief.
