Utah’s rock formations were “rearranged” last weekend by a trio of men, Boy Scout Leaders no less, who went on an infantile boulder bender in Goblin Valley State Park last weekend and then had the mental fortitude to capture their antics on video for all to see.
The video, seen here, landed the brawny bing-bas in trouble with Utah park authorities after the group took it upon themselves to topple a boulder that was resting precariously on a narrow perch. Officials say that the particular rock formation the men took aim at drew tourists because of its odd shape, and pointed out that it was over 170 million years old, which dates back to the Jurassic period.
MSN Now reported today that one of the men in the video, Glenn Taylor, “filed a lawsuit just last month claiming he'd suffered a ‘debilitating’ injury resulting in ‘great pain and suffering, disability, impairment, loss of joy of life’ from a 2009 auto accident in which a teenage girl rear-ended a string of cars,” says MSN.
If you haven’t clicked over yet to the video, go ahead. Watch Taylor muscle the rock over, and then decide how debilitating his injuries are.
Among those watching the viral YouTube video of the big boys laughing it up was Alan Macdonald, whose daughter was the one who rear-ended several cars four years ago, one of which was driven by Taylor. No one went to the hospital, Macdonald said, and although he was shocked at what appeared to be a frivolous lawsuit, he was even more shocked after watching the video.
Macdonald thinks Taylor doesn't look debilitated at all, and it’s hard to disagree.
“He's climbing over other rocks,” says Macdonald. “Then he lines up, gets leverage and pushes that big old rock several times before he finally pushes it over. Then he turns and twists and high fives and yucks it up and flexes his muscles; he just doesn't look like a terribly disabled person to me.”
Taylor's attorney said just because Glenn is "recovering" from his back injury doesn't mean he hasn't suffered, and said Taylor's medical bills are still mounting.
