Man Threw Refrigerator Off A Cliff, Police Made Him Carry It Back Up
A man thought it would be funny to throw a refrigerator down the mountain and mock recycling. He didn't laugh that much when the police found him and made him drag it back up.
This man thought he was being funny when he made a video in which he can be seen throwing a refrigerator off a cliff. In the footage he posted online he can be heard saying 'Let's go recycle it' and 'Let's see how many flips it can do', while the refrigerator goes down the ravine.
In the video that went viral online, you could see the man unloading the fridge from a white van along with its license plate. This made it easy for the local police AUGC Guardia Civil to track him down and punish him. The Guardia Civil made him drag the fridge up the hill and properly dispose of it.
The man was also fined and lost his job at the electronic equipment company where he worked. The firm he worked for is now also under investigation and faces possible sanctions of up to €300,000. According to AUGC 'The investigation is still open because the Civil Guard discovered that the company could also be committing a crime against nature.' After a Guardia Civil's inspection of the company, there were found 50 washing machines and 20 fridges left in a courtyard of a warehouse amid vegetation.
The man told the online news site El Espanol that he regrets what he's done. "I really regret what I've done because it's meant I've lost my job and has aggravated the problems I have with anxiety. All I want now is for this to go away and the effect it's having on my family, my girlfriend and me. I don't want people to have this image of me, as though I were a murderer."
