Police say man purposely drove boat into home

In Charlotte, N.C., authorities say a dispute over a contractor’s handiwork led him to back his trailered boat up a homeowner’s driveway and ram it into his garage.

The home owner reportedly paid the contractor $1,690 for deck and garage repairs, which were not done properly and he wanted his money back.

The result was an interesting Sunday evening in a quiet neighborhood.

"I heard the noise so I looked and I saw him kind of pulling out of the driveway some more, the boat sideways," said one neighbor.
