Cops Pull Over Driver with a 15-Foot Tree Lodged in Front Grille
Police in Illinois recently pulled over a woman who was driving with a large tree lodged in her car’s front grille.
The Roselle, Illinois police department released video of the incident on Facebook Monday as a reminder not to drink and drive.
In January, an officer spotted a car with a “15-foot tree embedded in the front grille,” on the opposite side of the road, Roselle Police said in a Facebook post. After pulling the driver over, the officer noticed that the airbags were deployed, “apparently from hitting the tree.”
According to police, the driver was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol.
Roselle police said they’ve received multiple requests to post the video from people who couldn’t believe it was true.
“Yes, it is true, and it happened! DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE,” the police department said in the post.
