70 year-old Florida man busted for sitting on his sunroof while his car was going 100 MPH
An off-duty cop was driving on the interstate in Lakeland, Florida last week when he saw a white Cadillac zoom past him, with an old man sitting on the sunroof.
He took a video and called 911, and the Florida Highway Patrol came out and pulled over 70-year-old Leonard Olsen.
Apparently he’d put the car on cruise control at around 100 miles per hour, then decided to open up the sunroof and stand up instead of driving. He felt that it was fine because, quote, “The car drives itself and has a gigantic computer in it.”
And, quote, “I thought it would be a nice way to praise God for a minute.”
He was arrested on a misdemeanor reckless driving charge.
