Following the white rabbit
I am in Racine, WI, parked for the night. After checking in at the hotel across from the truck stop I went into the restaurant/bar for a grouper sandwich and a cold beer.
The sandwich was excellent, and the beer was as well. I stepped outside on the patio for an after meal smoke. I was about half way through my smoke when a truck driver called out to me and said that someone had hit my truck.
Ack!
I rushed across the street, totally forgetting the iPad sitting on the bar. Sure enough, some chucklehead had backed his trailer right into my grill. After giving the fellow some very choice words I grabbed the accident camera and shot several pics before letting him move his truck.
I got his license and insurance information and then called the Sheriff's department.
After getting all of the required accident information, the deputy then ran our licenses over the radio. A few minutes later a second cruiser pulled in. When I saw that I looked at the driver who had hit my truck and asked if he had a warrant. I was just kidding.
Turns out he did have a warrant as well as a suspended license. Bad day for him.
I called the insurance company and reported the incident to them and then returned to my beer. What a day!

Mason I have a similar story, as I used to do drive OTR.
I was down in Laredo Texas waiting on a load in a Pilot truck stop. I was passed out in the sleeper and some guy from Werner pulled out and took my pass mirror off.
I woke up of course and had to run to stop the guy who tried to leave. He was acting real funny and begged me to not report it. I called it in of course and sure enough he had a warrant. I'm lucky he didn't try something stupid because with the threat of going to jail people can get crazy.
Be safe

The worst thing about that whole situation is that he interrupted a perfectly good patio pipe and beer moment!!! He should be dragged through the streets and burned alive for his insolence!

Nah the smell of burning flesh would make smoking a pipe a bad experience, I say tie his feet up to the back of your bumper and take a drive down the highway.
