CHICAGO — A truck driver driving through Illinois last week claims he caught a police officer speeding while talking on his cell phone. He honked at the officer, who responded by pulling him over, he says.
In a video the trucker posted to YouTube, the officer at first argues with the trucker, saying he is allowed to be on the phone and that he wasn’t speeding. He then says he’s going to give the trucker a ticket for using his horn illegally.
When the trucker informs him he was being recorded, the officer went back to his cruiser with the driver’s information, comes back and says the trucker isn’t getting a ticket.
According to the video, the officer also allegedly gave the trucker a violation-free truck inspection and admits he wasn’t paying attention to how fast he was going.AlertMe
