Most people would stop driving their car when the brake failed, but not this Fred Flintstone-wanna be: he tried to use his feet instead.
Roseville Police arrested a 24-year-old man Wednesday who tried to use his feet to brake his moving car and failed, hitting four cars along the way.
The Fred Flintstone wannabe, a roofer from Warren, was driving on a suspended license and was cited for Reckless Driving in the incident, in which police said he was completely sober, just “overly tired.”
He “will face a judge in September, to explain his moronic decision making,” said Deputy Chief James Berlin in a statement.
