OMAHA, Neb. — Imagine doing some work outside when a man with a hammer approaches you and threatens you. A local concrete company experienced just that in Omaha this past weekend. And it was all caught on camera.

The viral video shows a man harassing Jackson's Complete Concrete employees.

"The guy was just upset. He just didn't want us there," employee Kerry Jackson said.

The event happened this past weekend when the man stepped out of his home with a pocket knife and a hammer, and started damaging vehicles and the concrete work. The man stepped into, and eventually fell into, the concrete that the employees were laying out.

"It slowed us up to where we had to rework the concrete all over again. We had already smoothed it up and everything and then he decided to walk through it," Jackson said.

The company was there to fix part of the road. In the end the truck that was parked on the resident's property had nothing to do with the concrete company.

"Come to find out it was his neighbor's truck," Jackson said.

The man is now facing legal trouble. The Douglas County Sheriff's Office says the man is charged with criminal mischief and he will have to pay a hefty fine.

Kerry Jackson is just happy that the man didn't take his frustrations out any further.

"Thank god that it went calmly like it did and didn't escalate worse. That he didn't go after any of the guys with the hammer," he said.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office also adds that the initial truck on the man's lawn was technically still on county property, not on the man's personal property. The attack may have been racially motivated.
