Going out, tying one off and hitching a ride home is one thing is one thing, but passing out drunk on the back of a car and taking a stroll on the interstate, that’s just crazy.
According to WFTV, Memphis man Carl Webb and his wife had parked their car in downtown Memphis to attend Barbecue Fest. Upon returning to the car, they opened the doors and hopped in. Neither of them noticed an adult man unknowingly hitching a ride on the rear end of the vehicle.
“We came down the aisle, walked right to the car, opened it up on both sides then we got in the car,” Webb said.
Thankfully, a Memphis police officer noticed the man on the back of the car and was able to bring it to Webb’s attention.
“The officer came up and he said, ‘Mister, are you aware there’s a body on your trunk?’, and that did not register,” Webb went on. “He goes, ‘Mister, I’m not messing with you. There’s a body on your trunk.’ So I got out. We walked around and sure enough, there he was, still hanging on, still unconscious, just lying there.”
Webb had driven 14 miles with the man passed out on the rear of his car. The officer woke the man up, but he was so intoxicated he nearly stumbled into traffic.
The unidentified man was hauled off into a police cruiser, but whether or not he was charged with anything has not yet been determined.
