Police in a Chicago suburb have shared photos and video footage of an unforgettable DUI stop.
The Roselle Police Department posted two incredible images of a car, still being driven, with a 15-foot tree embedded in the front grille!
A few weeks ago, a Roselle police officer saw a car driving southbound on Roselle Road with a 15-foot tree embedded in the front grill of the car. After stopping the driver, he also noticed the airbags had been deployed (apparently from hitting the tree). After an investigation, the Roselle officer arrested the driver for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol.
The post started getting shared like gangbusters, and the pics were so amazing that some wondered if they were authentic. In response, RPD followed up with a video of the car being driven and the monster hood ornament still attached:
Since we are new to Facebook, we were not quite sure what to expect from our post. We have received requests to post the video from this call. Some just didn’t believe it was true, so we have attached a short video of this call.The first portion of the video is in slow-motion and shows the car traveling in the opposite direction; the second portion shows the officer trying to stop the car and then as he approaches the driver. Yes, it is true and it happened! DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE!
