A UPS driver has been fired after getting caught throwing a package over a gate and urinating against a house, according to reports. A Houston homeowner posted the security video on social media and contacted UPS.
UPS officials have apologized to Ben Lucas, the homeowner, for the Jan. 8 incident. Lucas said Tuesday that he checked his surveillance video after finding that the parcel was broken open and some of the items inside damaged, including ammunition and a gun-cleaning device.
The video shows the delivery man hurling the package over a gate, then unzipping his pants and relieving himself on the property.
The company says the seasonal employee was fired because his behavior was unacceptable and his actions violated decency and delivery care.
