When a cop pulled over an erratic driver, he found a 250-pound pig in the driver’s lap
Drivers are easily distracted behind the wheel, typically by their cell phones, their radio, or even their makeup. But, one officer in Minnesota found a driver’s attention hogged by something very bizarre.
When Sergeant Jason Foster responded to a tip last October that a car was driving erratically and could not stay in the lane, he pulled the car over. He was surprised to find the driver not distracted by his cell phone but by his 250-pound pet pig.
“It was kind of shocking,” Sgt. Foster told Fox 9. “He had this 250-pound pig on his lap. In fact, it was leaning against the steering wheel. He was muscling the steering wheel to keep it in its lane.”
