Hard times can cause people to act in peculiar ways. On May 20, one man stopped his U-Haul truck on the Strip in front of Planet Hollywood and began unloading its contents onto the street. The incident, which lasted more than 10 minutes, was captured by numerous passersby and uploaded to YouTube, where it can be seen from a few different perspectives. According to some comments on the site, the man’s meltdown was triggered after he lost his home. Whatever the case, Metro officers took the man away, leaving someone else to clean up the considerable mess.
