Hell hath no fury like.. well.. a Casey James Fury anxious. Fury became anxious and wanted to leave work and as a result he will likely never have to worry about work again. The 24 year old Fury was working as a sandblaster and painter on the nuclear submarine USS Miami while it was in drydock in Maine. When he became anxious on May 23, he set a fire which took 12 hours to extinguish and caused $400 million in damage. Fury, who was not caught right away, later set a second fire to the sub on June 16.
Now Fury faces life imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, and restitution. We hope small cells don’t make him anxious. And a warning to other folks wanting to leave work early- just leave, it’ll be much cheaper and easier.
