One guy going through a divorce is going to jail -- but probably as a folk hero!

64-year-old Rene Daniel of Saint-Emelie-de-l'Energie, Quebec, Canada was served with divorce papers by his wife last week. It clearly wasn't an amicable split and he had revenge on his mind.

So what did he do? He got on his tractor, filled it with manure, and drove over to her house and dumped some of it at her front door. He then dumped the rest of it in her hot tub!

By that point the police were on the way and Rene tried to make a getaway...on his tractor. But, at a whopping 10 miles-an-hour, the chase wasn't exactly "high speed".

The cops managed to stop him less than a mile away and of course he fought with the cops. He was eventually pepper-sprayed then arrested.

He's facing charges for mischief over $5,000, hit and run, assaulting a police officer, and obstructing police.
