The debt so upset the 47-year-old that he began demolishing the existing building instead, according to police.

The man also destroyed the garage that had gas tanks, so the police cordoned off the place for some time. No one was injured, but about fifty passers-by watched the events.
Soon the offender surrendered to the police. A man can not only lose the amount owed to him, but will also have to pay a fine, since the destruction of buildings is severely punished by German law.
