SUPERIOR, Wis. - It's not unusual for a divorce to end in anger.
But a woman who lives in Superior, Wisconsin took things to a new level this week with a traffic-stopping gesture that was carried out at the expense of her ex-husband.
The angry former spouse put all her ex-mate's belongings out on the front lawn with signs reading "Free" and "X-Husband Sale."
As if that wasn't enough, she flatted the tires of the man's SUV and spray painted the truck with the word "Cheater" in block letters.
The spectacle triggered enough buzz that it became a must-see stop for motorists to check it out, and even stop for pictures. It created enough of a traffic hazard that Superior police decided to tow the GMC Yukon away.
Superior Police Sgt. William Lear told the newspaper there's no law against spray painting a vehicle in one's own yard.
"If it's a running vehicle and someone wants to paint their own car, they can do it," he said.
Neighbors tell the he Duluth News Tribune it all started Tuesday when the couple's divorce was finalized.
