Fargo, ND resident Todd Fox has been detained for trying to attack snow...with a flamethrower. Bad. Ass.

He was arrested on charges of “reckless endangerment” and “illegal use of high-powered fire-breathing weaponry” after he became so fed up with the week-long snowstorm in his area that he decided to, you know, casually kill it with fire.

Todd's neighbors witnessed quite the show as he unleashed a fiery hell upon the unsuspecting mountain of snow in his yard. People in the surrounding residences noticed a bright orange cloud and heard what they thought was “puff the magic dragon spewing mayhem all over hell.” Boy, we bet they were surprised when it turned out to be none other than Todd trying to melt the neighborhood. This prompted them to call the police.

Todd said 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 bullshit."

When police arrived, Todd's front yard "looked like a hydrogen bomb went off," but he surrendered immediately. We think he was just happy there's no snow in jail.
