`go ballistic’

When you `go ballistic’ you become very angry. When you go ballistic, you lose your cool easily. You become extremely angry about something.

For example:  “when Raju heard that Ganesh was not ready with the report, he went ballistic.”  * “There are times when Amrit goes ballistic for no reason at all.” * “Everyone was shocked when Saurabh went ballistic during the meeting.”
