Wheelchair road rage

This guy has issues:
A disabled man used his 4mph electric wheelchair to smash up a Transit van because two workmen had parked it outside his house, a court heard.

Kurt Baron, 40, caused £2,000 of damage to the vehicle's bodywork and narrowly missed a mother pushing a pram, forcing her and the baby into the road.

He also deliberately crashed into barriers round a manhole where the two Electricity North West engineers were working before threatening them with a claw hammer, Burnley Crown Court heard.

Baron, who is wheelchair bound after breaking his back in a fall from a tree, admitted possessing an offensive weapon and criminal damage, but avoided jail.

The prosecution said his wheelchair rampage happened on October 30 last year after he had a row with a blind friend in his house in Nelson, Lancashire.
He takes out his rage on himself too:
The court heard Baron had stabbed himself in the leg with a 12 inch knife while in his house and he told the court 'Over the last five months, a lot has changed. All I want is a normal life.'
Glad that I'm a mellow guy and not like Kurt Baron!

Of course, if I had tantrums, Mrs. AOW would put me in my place. You don't want to know how - and neither do I.

If you even tried to carry on like this guy the Mrs. would kick your ass.

I assume alcohol was involved.
