A 20-year-old Bracebridge man thought taking a forklift for a joyride would be a good idea.
OPP say the driver took the forklift off-road around 8:30 Sunday morning. Trees were damaged and overhead wires were pulled down.
Police caught up to the suspect driving the forklift along Highway 118 and arrested him.
He is now facing seven charges including theft, mischief and impaired driving.
