Man Calls 911 After 'Dared' to Jump Onto Moving Semi

Associated Press

June 21, 2010

SABINA, Ohio — Police say a man called 911 from the back of a moving tractor-trailer after he jumped onto the truck on a dare from friends, then traveled about 10 miles on an Ohio highway. In the call early Friday, 24-year-old Brandon Farmer tells a Fayette County dispatcher that it was a stupid idea and that he’s “holding on for dear life” on U.S. route 22 near Sabina, about 50 miles southwest of Columbus.

The Washington Court House man says he jumped onto the semitrailer as “kind of a joke” when it was stopped at a red light.

A Sabina police officer pulled over the truck and spotted Farmer still clinging to the back. The driver was unaware of the extra cargo onboard.

Sheriff Vernon Stanforth says Farmer had been drinking at the time and was charged with disorderly conduct.

    If he happens to do it again, I hope he makes sure he ducks his head before going under an overpass. LOL Alcohol makes many people stupid.

    More importantly, can he do it again? "Come on, what's the worst that could happen?"
