PETERSBURG, Ky. -- A Kentucky homeowner calls it "instant karma" after a misbehaving driver tried to run over a nine-foot snowman he built outside his home.

The towering triple stack of snowballs in northern Kentucky has a lot of character.

Cody Lutz said it was built to honor new snow experiences to his fiancé and his soon-to-be sister-in-law who just moved to Petersburg.

"We were playing in the snow. She's from Mississippi so this is the most snow she's ever seen in her entire life," Lutz said. "I'm from Buffalo so this is no big deal. I love the snow."

Lutz loves it so much that he took snowman building to the extreme, using a massive tree stump as the base for their top hat-topped, 9-foot-tall creation.

"I went to work on Monday and I came home to this Monday night, which is the irony is pretty funny."

Someone saw the soon-to-be Lutz family's creation and tried to fracture Frosty with the front end of their truck.

But they quickly realized their mistake when the plowed-away snow showed Frosty's roots.

"Instant karma, it's hilarious," Lutz said. "What goes around comes around in good ways and bad ways, so I guess everyone learns a valuable lesson here from Frosty."

There may be a couple lessons in here, believe in karma and smile through the tough times.

Frosty sure is.

"I think he got the last laugh for sure," Lutz said.
