FARGO MAN ARRESTED FOR CLEARING SNOW WITH FLAMETHROWER

Flamethrowing-Snow-Story

February 18, 2013: Fargo, ND – Local resident Todd Fox has been detained for “reckless endangerment” and “illegal use of high-powered fire-breathing weaponry” for attacking snow with his flamethrower. Fox reportedly became so fed up with the week-long blowing snow epidemic in his area that he decided to KILL IT WITH FIRE.

The neighborhood was treated with quite a show last night as Fox unleashed an inferno upon the mountainous snow palace that was his front yard. Neighbors to his immediate right and left noticed a bright orange cloud and could hear what they thought was “puff the magic dragon spewing mayhem all over hell,” which prompted one of them to notify police.

Fox stated that he was simply “fed up with battling the elements” and that he did not possess the willpower necessary to move “four billion tons of white bull shit.”

Police say that Fox surrendered his efforts immediately upon their arrival and that his front yard “looked like a hydrogen bomb had gone off.” They think he was just happy to be done with snow removal, even if it did mean a trip to jail.

    I like this guy. Gas and noise pollution from a snow blower/plow. Only Gas and a light show and no piles left over…what is the big problem? Ice? He has the solution if needed…no salt, or calcium chloride…

    Proof yet again that red necks are EVERYWHERE!! This is just too funny. I love it!

    Was this story only reported in the FM Observer (as per the link in the article above) or was it also carried in other well known news sites, like The Onion?

    That thing would be a lot of fun out in some deserted area- like say detroit.

    We get some heavy snow here in Illinois too; I know I’ve considered using napalm to clear the snow…

    Totally stupid. For one… no official sites reported this… and i also live in fargo and have not heard any of this. Fargo is big but not that big to where i wouldnt hear about it on local news. Fucking social network retards will believe anything.Go play outside and get some fresh air morons…

    Stupid neighbours!!! Wanna bet he won’t report a burglary next time he sees his neighbors house get torn apart? Would serve them right! Sticking their nose into business that didn’t concern them.

    To the guy in Fargo that says this is b.s. because he hadn’t heard about it and this a social media lie…this story was first rwported February of LAST year. Check facts before making ignorant comments.

  • Metro Detroit Gal

    I’ve lived in Metro Detroit all of my life and this would be a great tool to help eradicate the blight as the City seems to take forever on these types of projects. Our public image is horrible because of the actions and decisions of many of its leaders (i.e., Kilpatrick, Ferguson, M. Conyers, etc.) and citizens.

      LoL!! How has no one commented on this? A flaming inferno blazing right next door and it’s none of their business? I’m sorry, but I want to live to see the next day, not look like I’m trying to cosplay Brand.

      I think is was a great idea. Wish I had one. You’re right.. quick, less chemicals, less noise and he could make snow sculptures if he wanted to.

  • Noctis Wolf

    Well, he got rid of the snow, didn’t he? The town should be THANKING him. I’m not being sarcastic. Instead of him being arrested by police, he should be getting a thank you from the town. Now, with the snow melted, there won’t be all of that snow pilled up along the side of the street.

    Does every city have an ordnance against the “use of high-powered, fire-breathing weaponry”? And who determines when the use of such equipment is “illegal”?

        Obama has helped a lot. My confusion level rises.

        • origionalwinja

          If by help you mean screwed everyone, violated the constitution, and golfed more than any other president in history, then you would be correct. If that’s not what you mean, then you are confused and not paying attention.

          • Pat

            Ha, exactly and illegally released terrorist master minds in exchange for a defecting psychopath. Helped ISIS, yes.

            What, the Obama Care that forces Federal control over citizens, private sector, and states.
            Paying out the ass for ppl who can’t work for their benefits.

            Where does the money come from? You and I: if not taxes then through increased costs of goods and services.

            Helping my ass.

            Restricting our Constitution and promising catchy emotional promises like hope and change.

            What the hell does that even mean?

            Jobs? Full time positions are now as attainable as a unicorn for low middle class.
            What employer will give out more than 30 hours nowadays? That means multiple jobs.

            Stupid, and now this idea of mandated paid time off.

            It’s not the employer or governments job to provide you this. Go find a job that offers it. Free market. All you lib ass Obama junkies have your head so far up your hope and change asses.

            Obama, what a joke.

          • Kabooper

            So how did this become a rant about Obama, I suppose you comment on ALL posts about Obama??! Weird.

          • PoliticosSuck

            Yes, because the story’s all about Obama.
            Piss off with your fucktardian ranting…

          • sjc0116

            and apparently so is your response. hear of the 1st amendment?

            And just exactly how many years ago did you last look for a job, Pat?

          • sjc0116

            took my cousin 3 years to find a job and it was for 25 hrs a week at 1/2 the pay. he lives in in NY where jobs should plentiful.. they’re not.

    • moore

      ha ha

  • Snowed in

    I live in hamburg New York and in two days we got about 6 feet of snow. I’m sick of shoveling and think this is the best idea ever !!!

  • Matt

    Where can I buy a flamethrower?

  • nuncha

    that seems like temporary snow insanity and they should be glad he did it. Bravo!

  • Joseph

    People think its OK to use a flame thrower.. Thank god government and laws are in place to protect the sane.

    • Ted

      And your exactly what’s wrong in this country.

    • Brett Jennings

      to have a crime there has to be a person harmed. So who will be in court to say that they were harmed. Then did the police have the required warrent to even arrest him as required by law?

    • Gary Rogers

      It is OK to use them, or at least own them, in any state except California and Maryland. If you’re a pussy and don’t like having the right to own a flame thrower, one of the two states mentioned would probably welcome you with open arms.

  • Ray

    There might not be any charges if he set a black guy on fire

  • Ray

    In Fargo N.D. there might not be any charges if he set a black guy on fire

  • Millian

    SPITFIRE!!!

  • Julie McLain

    I dont see a problem here. If you’ve got it…use it! I wish I could.

  • PITC

    They do sell those commercially to specifically melt snow…this is nothing new..getting arrested is BS.

    Sounds Like a Great Idea to Me! Where Can we rent The Flame Throwers? :)

  • Danny Wade

    Complaining about snow in Fargo is like moving to Tunisia and bitching about the sand.

  • John

    MMM I believe it is actually legal to own a flame thrower.

    • Gary Rogers

      Except for California and Maryland.

  • karen

    At this point, it may just be worth the trip to jail…

  • Raini Way

    Gotta be one of Sgt. Andrew Carter’s descendants. It’s just gotta be. Someone ask this guy if he had a great grandfather in a POW camp in Bavaria during WWII.

    • LindengoneSalem

      You have your own thing going on. Maybe start a website devoted to it and see if anyone shows up.

  • Neil R. Ouellette

    The neighbor was pissed he didn’t do his driveway.

  • Rocker

    I always wanted to do it this way seems more sensible than shoveling

  • asdfsgdfhdh

    i need video for science reasons!

  • John Warren

    The specific heat of snow is so high, I doubt it would do much good. Just try to melt an ice cube with a blow torch and you’ll see.

    • sjc0116

      ok now.. do you know how many people just went to the garage to get theirs? :)

    And what law exactly did he break?? Sounds like If he wasnt burning the town down or burning someone his neighbors should have minded there own business.

    Way to GO Todd! Screw yer pansy neighbors! When you make bond and get back home, fry their sissified asses while their shovelin’ that stuff in their driveways!

  • jms

    What kind of a country do we now live in where it is actually illegal to go psycho apeshit with a flame thrower in your own front yard. I weep for our lost freedom.
