Man Gets Jail Time for Tearing Down Brother's Home with Forklift

ETNE, Norway, Jan. 26 (UPI) —
A Norwegian man was sentenced to 14 months in prison for demolishing his brother’s home with a forklift, official said.

The incident happened last summer in the village of Etne, TheLocal.no reported Friday.

Sturla Vik-Vestly, a lawyer for the victim, told TheLocal.no the man decided to demolish his older brother’s home after hearing rumors that he planned to knock down an older house on the family property that the younger brother believed he had a right to live in.

The older brother and his 16-year-old son were in the house when the suspect began tearing down walls with the forklift, Vik-Vestly said.

Along with the jail time, the younger brother has been ordered to pay $164,000 in damages to his older brother, and received a five-year driving ban for drunken driving while fleeing the scene.
