Written By:

A Texas plumber called Mark Oberholtzer is suing a Ford dealership after a pickup truck he traded ended up in Terrorist hands in Syria.

Oberholtzer, owner of Mark-1 Plumbing in Texas City,Texas is suing AutoNation Ford Gulf Freeway, the Houston, Texas dealership where he traded in his Ford F-250 pickup truck.

According to the lawsuit filed by Oberholtzer, AutoNation stopped him from removing his company decals from the side of his truck with the salesperson claiming that it would blemish the paint.

Following the posting of the tweet which showed a picture of his former truck with intact decals in the hands of a Syrian terrorist group called Jaish al-Muhajireen wal-Ansar (or, the "Muhaijireen Brigade"), Oberholtzer claims his office received over 1,000 phone calls from around the country just two days after the tweet was posted, and that he has been forced to buy a handgun for his own safety.
