One of the men responsible for toppling an, “ancient boulder in Utah’s Goblin Valley State Park,” was found to have filed a personal injury lawsuit just a few weeks prior to the incident. In that lawsuit, he claimed he suffered from, “serious, permanent and debilitating injuries.”

Video of Glenn Taylor shoving the huge rock off a slender pedestal where it rested for millions of years went viral online and attracted media scrutiny.

“Someone with a bad back who’s disabled, who can’t enjoy life, to me, doesn’t step up and push a rock that big off the base,” the defendant in Taylor’s lawsuit, Alan MacDonald, told Salt Lake City television station KTVX.

When, “CNN affiliate KUTV noted that Taylor didn’t look particularly debilitated in the video, he replied, ‘You didn’t see how hard I pushed.'”
