Mark Oberholtzer, owner of Mark-1 Plumbing in Texas City, traded his company’s former F-250 to Houston-based Ford dealership AutoNation Ford Gulf Freeway. Now, according to a Washington Post report, the truck is being used by an extremist group in Syria. After photos of the truck, which still contain the plumbing company’s logo and phone number, appeared on social media, Oberholtzer said he and his family have received nonstop threatening phone calls. Now, Oberholtzer is suing AutoNation Ford Gulf Freeway for misrepresenting its intentions to remove the logo, “causing Oberholtzer, his business and his family ‘severe harm.’” The Washington Post has more.
