Driver dumps corn on highway after being fired via text

A truck driver allegedly emptied 1,000 bushels of corn on a highway after being told to leave via text.

Darren Walp, 36, from Pennysylavia was driving a Peterbilt truck full of corn to Kansas for B&T Livingston Trucking LLC, when he received a text from someone in the company, telling him to “pack your stuff ASAP and you can leave.”

Deciding he had no reason to finish his mission of delivering corn, just 45 minutes later, Walp stopped the truck, got out and opened both doors, letting the corn pour across the highway.

The Lincoln Journal reports that Walp then took off with corn still spilling out of the truck for a quarter of a mile, in Nebraska.

Walp was arrested and charged with criminal mischief and depositing materials on a roadway or ditch in the incident, which happened in August.

The publication reveals that he has been released from jail.
