A man backed a Uhaul truck into a steel pole in front of Badcock Home Furniture and More Tuesday afternoon, and then allegedly drove off, according to a report from the LaGrange Police Department.

The report says the man was backing up after picking up his items when he hit a steel pole, “bending the pole into one of the decorative columns and damaging all.” The store manager said the man then drove off. He called the man’s dad, who said he would tell his son to return to the store, but he did not do so.
