63-year-old Jeffrey Caouette lives in Elk River area, and recently split up with his girlfriend.
And he got arrested this week for throwing thousands of SCREWS on the road near her house . . . because he wanted to prevent her from driving to see the new guy she's dating.
It's not clear if she ever got a flat tire because of it. But roughly 150 OTHER people did. And it wasn't an isolated incident.
He did it every other day for TWO MONTHS. And in August alone, he purchased over 12,000 sheetrock screws.
Several people who live in the area had to replace all four of their tires after they drove over them. And a few had to replace their tires multiple times.
He's facing a felony charge for damage to property over $1,000. And it sounds like they'll be tacking on more charges as well. (Fox9)
