Don’t let the names fool you. There was absolutely, positively no love happening on Sunday night when a man by the name of “Truelove” propositioned then threatened to kill another man at Love’s Truck Stop in Fife, Washington, KOMO News reports.
47-year-old Robert Truelove allegedly approached a man and asked, “Do you want to go on a date?” When the man turned him down, Truelove became enraged.
Letting out an animalistic cry, he ripped off his shirt. Then he grabbed a large piece of metal and began waving it in the air as he advanced towards the victim whilst threatening to kill him.
The trucker, terrified, scrambled back to his vehicle, where he locked himself inside and called 9-1-1.
Officers arrived at the scene shortly thereafter. They found and arrested Truelove, who reportedly denied any wrongdoing.
Truelove has been charged with assault and felony harassment and was banned from ever returning to the truck stop.
The moral of the story? Truck stop hookups: Hot in theory. Scary in real life.
