Cop Pulling D.A.R.E. Trailer Charged with DUI

Scott and Tina Robbins called 911 after hearing a crash in the street outside their home in Salem, Indiana. A truck had hit a tree so hard that the vehicle appeared to be wrapped around it. The truck was driven by John Newcomb, a Seymour, Indiana police officer.
"He was sitting on the wall out of the vehicle, holding his head," said Mrs. Robbins. But that wasn't the only thing that stood out to the Robbins, it was the trailer Newcomb was pulling.

"It said DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) and Seymour Police Department- which made me think he was a police officer," said Mr. Robbins.

Not only a police officer, but according to the Seymour Police Department website, he is the School Resource Officer, responsible for seven schools, acting as a mentor and providing students with a role model. It even states that he conducts lectures on narcotics and alcohol and their effects on driving.

"He's not setting a good example for kids that see this," said Mr. Robbins.

Newcomb said he crashed because a dog in the vehicle distracted him. He was taken to the Washington County Jail. -via Fark

I didn't do a damn thiing. We get accused for eating kid's homework, farting and now forcing a cop to get caught driving drunk. Next time there is a cat in your garbage or a man standing over your bed with a gun pointed at your head, you handle them.

i was following a trailer the other day, and i noticed the tail lights/signals were not hooked up to the pickup truck doing the pulling. illegal, and also annoying since i was constantly late in noticing it was slowing or stopping. once the truck turned, i noticed it was our local fire department's mobile safety/education unit. oye.
