Caught on camera: Truck driver busts cop on his cellphone
By WSLS Staff
ILLINOIS (WSLS) - A truck driver on a highway in Illinois says he noticed a state police cruiser "speeding" past him and the officer inside was on his cell phone.
The driver said, to make matters worse, road were wet from rain.
The driver says he honked his horn at the passing cruiser. That's when the officer pulled him over, saying the driver would be cited for unlawful use of his horn.
The truck driver kept his camera rolling during the traffic stop, informing the officer he was being taped. In the video, the driver accuses the officer of speeding and being "above the law" several times.
The officer ultimately checked the driver's time logs and performed a routine inspection on the truck. The driver was not issued a citation for unlawful use of his horn.
