Hooligans in Pickup Trucks Ruin $25K of Worth of Grass
Just because there isn’t a fence, it doesn’t mean you can make yourself at home.
Doing donuts around a wet and open field is a ton of fun, especially if it’s deep enough to present a challenge, but shallow enough to stay out of trouble. However, of all places to do that at, a bunch of morons decided to find the one patch of grass that actually serves a purpose by just being there. They hit a sod grass field.
Felix Guajardo is the sod farmer who was affected, and he said this has happened before. “My wife heard the screaming of the engines last night at 9:30, 10 pm,” Guajardo said to KRGV 5 News. In the span of about five minutes, the hooligans destroyed five acres of sod grass in total. That’s 60 palettes of grass, and the going rate per pallet is about $85 bucks, which amounts to about $25,000 dollars. That’s a lot of money, and a lot of grass to lose in one night.
“We spend a whole year to get it ready to harvest and then this happens, they ruin the crop,” the farmer said. “Once it’s ran over and used as entertainment, it’s impossible to recover it,” Guajardo said. If those who did this are caught, they could be charged with criminal mischief and even face jail time according to the Texas Penal Code.
