    Driver praised for ramming patrol car in Utah

    Driver praised for ramming patrol car in Utah

    WEST VALLEY CITY A Utah driver rammed a sheriff's patrol car on purpose and officers aren't even upset.

    West Valley City police say a man posted an ad asking for a massage. When he showed up at the appointed meeting place, instead of finding a woman police say a 21-year-old man hopped into the truck, flashed a gun and told the victim to drive.

    Salt Lake County Sheriff's Lt. Jason Johnson says the driver tried to stay calm but saw an opportunity to escape when he pulled up next to a sheriff's deputy.

    Johnson says the man hit the patrol car, jumped out of the truck and started yelling.

    Officers quickly arrested the gunman.

    Johnson says a little damage to a vehicle that can be repaired is better than anyone getting hurt.

    For those who might not know, they normally don't have those kind of massage parlors in Utah. Especially that close to SLC, I doubt a place like that would get much business. Hence why the victim chose to place the ad. Sounds pretty stupid to me on the victim's part, especially in Mormon conservative Utah. Now Nevada on the other hand......

    It doesn't appear that the collision was too violent, probably a fender bender. I'm glad that no one was hurt and that the dirtbag was taken into custody.


    Choose The Right. When you're doing whats right, then you have nothing to worry about.
