SENOIA, GA – Sometimes accidents happen. Like the guy who didn’t plan to crash his truck through a fence and into someone’s house while he was running from deputies in Louisiana. People were in the house at the time, but everyone came out okay, even the driver.

But sometimes a man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do.

Senoia , Georgia’s, very own John Paul Jones, Jr., says he drove his pickup truck from the backdoor of his house through the front door because he was angry and fed up. "I don't know, it was just one of those spur of the moment crazy things."

It’s a good thing he’s a contractor, because he did his own repairs.

"Been out of work for the past year and a half. Needed some work. Why not? It don't pay, but hey, it kept me busy."

Jones says he was mad after he and his wife got into it on the telephone, and then one thing led to another.

"I'm just saying, don't dare me, because I will do it."

Cops didn’t charge him with anything because it’s not against the law in Georgia to drive a truck through a house, as long as it’s your truck and your house.
