Default Ram trucks making the news

It is bad news unfortunately

A Ram owner had his truck at the Dodge Service Department, it was left there waiting on some parts to come in from a warehouse.
He was called to let him know that the parts had come in.
Unfortunately, he was called a second time & was told that an arsonist had torched not only his Ram, but several other vehicles as well.

Police were involved in a high speed chase that was heading towards the Mexican Border.
When the Ram being chased was in a fairly open area, the police tossed out the spike strips.
The 2 right side tires blew out & the Ram continued going, the driver must not have been familiar with the area & he turned into a cul de sac.
Who knows why the driver kept going at the end, but it looked like he jumped the sidewalk curb & struck the wall on the backside of the sidewalk
It turns out the driver was from England & they said he will be deported.

I'd guess it's an unhappy customer... Maybe waiting for weeks for a radio repair or an update gone bad?
