A Chisago County Sheriff got quite the surprise during a routine traffic stop for distracted driving. The Sheriff Sgt James Foster was on the job when he saw a vehicle swerving on 35, “It was kind of shocking. He had this 250-pound pig on his lap. In fact, it was leaning against the steering wheel he was muscling the steering wheel to keep it in its lane,” Foster told the station.
The driver told Foster he was in the process of moving and didn’t want his pets to get cold in the back of the pickup truck. Foster let the driver and his porky passenger off the hook with a warning. He added that drivers who are worried about their pets shouldn’t let them sit on their lap while driving.
