A father grieving the loss of his 2-year-old daughter and her grandparents was so upset with the lenient sentence a judge handed to their killer that he picked up a chair and tossed it at her.

According to the New York Daily News, the driver in Roermond, southern Holland, was speeding at 75 mph in a 50 mph zone and ended up crashing into the car carrying the little girl and her family and killing them.

The judge gave the driver 120 hours of community service as punishment. As she read her decision, the furious father picked up a chair in the courtroom and threw it at her full force.

He was apprehended by court officers. A condition of the lenient sentence is that if the man does not complete his community service, he will have to serve 60 days in prison.
