TEXAS CITY, Texas, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- A Texas plumber was surprised when he got a flood of calls and threats after a truck from his company was seen being used by Islamic militants on Twitter.
The truck was see outfitted with anti-aircraft weaponry operated by members of the group Ansar al-Deen Front. The truck bore the logo and telephone number of Texas plumbing company Mark 1 owned by Mark Oberholtzer. Since the picture has gone up their office phone has been ringing off the hook with some callers turning "ugly."
AutoNation, the dealer who sold the vehicle, refused to disclose the details of the sale. Oberholtzer left the decal on the truck with the expectation they would remove it.
"They were supposed to have done it and it looks like they didn't do it," Oberholtzer told the Galveston Daily News. "How it ended up in Syria, I'll never know."
The company has retained a lawyer to pursue legal action and compel Twitter to remove the photo.
