With the holiday season in full swing, at least one UPS driver is going to make it on the “naughty list” after being caught on camera haphazardly tossing packages that were to be delivered in Connecticut.

The delivery driver was spotted on a home security camera, shot putting a package toward the front door of a Plantsville home, in a video that has since gone viral since being posted online by ABC7 NY and on social media by the homeowner.

In the video, the hooded driver can be seen taking a package from the truck and throwing it overhand at the house before turning around and getting back into his truck.

The package reportedly contained clothing, a coffee mug, and several holiday ornaments, though nothing was broken after it hit the garage door of the home.

UPS has said it is investigating the incident. In a statement, UPS said that employees “receive regular training on the company's methods and procedures to safely transport and deliver packages."
