SALT LAKE CITY, UT (KUTV/CNN) - An angry teen stole a forklift and took it on a rampage before being apprehended at gunpoint.

Some teen girls captured the Thursday night commotion on video. Cars and a motorcycle were among the casualties.   

The boy was reportedly angered in a store and found the keys to a forklift parked nearby at a construction site, and let his frustration out on property.

He dodged some vehicles, picked up a portable bathroom and rammed the machine into buildings, KUTV reports.  

The teen was booked into juvenile detention after police arrived and took him into custody.
