HOUSTON, Texas (CNN) – A man in Houston, Texas got a very “special delivery” earlier this month. But it is not the kind that he, or anyone else, expected from UPS.
A sense of bewilderment came over Ben Lucas scanning surveillance video taken from cameras he installed outside his home.
What he saw was a UPS driver walking up to his gate. The gate was locked but instead of setting the package down, he chucks it over the fence. The package broke open and damaged hundreds of dollars worth of ammunition, chemicals and a machine used to clean guns. adding insult to injury; the ups driver then unzips his pants and pees on the side of Lucas’ house.
“So basically, I paid someone to come to my house and pee on it,” Lucas said.
Lucas first contacted UPS to send the company the video, but they didn’t want to see it.
“I just wanted them to hear me and maybe give me an email address where I could send them the video. They simply didn’t want to see it,” Lucas said.
After getting what he felt was a lukewarm response from the company, with no real apology, Lucas decided to post the video to social media. That finally prompted a stronger response from the company. In fact, while news crews were meeting with Lucas he got a call from a UPS divisional manager.
Lucas says he got an apology and an offer to send over a ‘we’re sorry’ gift. Lucas said he was also told that driver has been fired.
“That is what I kind of wanted. I just wanted someone to say he shouldn’t have done that and we will try to make sure that doesn’t happen again,” Lucas said.
UPS confirmed the driver was indeed fired. They added that he was not a full-time employee.
