Videos surface of men wearing Algonquin Township Highway Dept. uniforms firing guns, totaling car
Videos uploaded to Youtube show four men dressed in Algonquin Township uniforms shooting at a vehicle and destroying it, using Algonquin Township equipment on Algonquin Township property.
Links to the videos were emailed on Friday afternoon to the McHenry Times.
One eight-minute video begins with three men firing multiple rounds at a white vehicle several yards away.
At about the 33-second mark, a voice can be heard saying, “Who said don’t hit the fuel tank?”
Roughly 45 seconds into the video, a different man can be heard egging on the others after the shots stop for several seconds.
“Keep going,” he says, before one of the men moves closer to the vehicle and shoots at the steering wheel at close range three times.
Laughter can be heard as he retreats with a smile on his face.
The men then proceed to drive the bullet-riddled vehicle around the Township compound.
“I’m out of ammo,” one of them then says.
“Alright, I’m going to shoot this thing,” another says, to which his accomplice responds, “Let me get good filming, hold on.”
Around the 4:30 mark, one of the men drives up to the vehicle with a loader and proceeds to completely demolish the vehicle and the others laugh.
In a second video that appears to be taken at the same location, one on the men can be seen more clearly with the name “Brian” on his uniform. He, along with a second man dressed in an orange shirt, discuss what they describe as a "$20 challenge" as a third person videotapes the exchange.
After "inspecting" the ammunition and $20 bill, the man dressed in the orange shirt places the $20 bill over his genital region and places the butt of his rifle over the bill. While holding the gun in that position, he fires a shot straight ahead and buckles over in pain, as he and the other men laugh.
Incumbent Algonquin Township Highway Commissioner Bob Miller faced challenger Andrew Gasser in a primary election for the Republican nomination on Feb. 28.
