“Have you guys had anything to drink tonight?”
Within mere seconds of asking that question, a cop found himself coated in a deluge of beer. Talk about ironic.
According to Fox News Insider, Nevada Highway Patrol trooper Travis Smaka had just pulled over a car near Las Vegas for speeding, when the above events occurred and were captured on the patrol car’s dash cam.
A nearby truck carrying over 1,000 pounds of beer lost control on the interstate, possibly due to a car cutting it off in traffic. Its brakes locked and the beer went flying off of the vehicle, spilling all over the highway, including on the police, and into the pulled-over vehicle.
Tons of beer bottles and cans shattered and caused the spillage of beer, which the trooper recalled as a “tidal wave of beer” in an interview with KSNV.
Fortunately, nobody appeared to be hurt as a result of the incident, and the driver, who wasn’t drinking, was let off with a warning after his car was pelted with numerous beer bottles and cans.
The entire scene is something straight out of a cop comedy movie. There’s no way you could think of a more ironic scene than this one.
Officer Smaka definitely has a hilarious story he can tell for ages to come.
