I can already picture this guy in my head saying:

“That daggum PO-lice is always coming after me.”

Considering I live in BFE South Carolina, I’ve had my share of “just when you thought you’ve seen it all” moments.

From people driving their lawn mowers to the gas station and dollar store, to a guy walking a whole horse down the busiest road in my hometown, nothing really surprises me anymore…

Until I see videos like this.

This one is straight out of Knox County, Indiana, where a man from Vincennes was arrested for OWI (operating while intoxicated) while driving a Power Wheels Jeep down the side of the road.

And if the name “Power Wheels Jeep” doesn’t ring a bell, no, it’s not a vehicle brand. It’s a toy brand that you would buy for your Toddler at Walmart.

According to WTHR 13, the 51-year-old man was pulled over by Indiana State Police for obvious reasons, where he was found to be under the influence of marijuana and meth.

You can hear  the state trooper tell the man in the video:

“You know you can’t just drive these things down the road, right?”

The officer had the man conduct some field sobriety tests, which he obviously failed, and he was taken into custody.

I think the funniest part of the whole story is that the trooper had to call for a tow truck to come pick up the toy Jeep.

While in the patrol car, the man hilariously says:

“I’ve been riding these Power Wheels for the last nine months and you’re the only one that’s taken me to jail. May even get famous for that because no one else has done it.”

Welp, buddy. Your goal was achieved.

The man was charged with OWI with a prior conviction, which is a felony, and he was sentenced to 360 days of supervised probation and had his license suspended.
