Trooper Pulls Up To Squad Car, Finds Passed Out Teen
April 13, 2010
SALEM, Ore. (AP) – An Oregon State Police trooper pulled up next to a parked Marion County sheriff’s patrol car late Saturday expecting to talk to the deputy. Instead he found an 18-year-old passed out over the steering wheel. State police said the Ford Mustang had been stolen from the deputy’s home.
The Statesman Journal reported the sheriff’s office wasn’t aware it was stolen until it got a call from troopers.
The 18-year-old was jailed and released the next day on $2,500 bail. The Ford Mustang, used in a traffic safety team, was not damaged.
