Better safe than sorry

  • Sunday, December 1, 2013

A man was at a bowling alley with his young sons and while they bowled, the father ate and drank some alcohol. He struck up a conversation with another man and chatted. While all this was going on, a witness was watching closely, according to a police report. He grew concerned when the father left to drive, with his two young boys in his car, as well as offered a perfect stranger a ride too.

He called police to report this suspicious behavior.

He told officers the father appeared to have had at least eight glasses of wine.

He said he did not want him to drive his boys home. He found it odd that he would give a ride to a man he had only just met.

Police then spoke to the father who did not appear to be intoxicated. They ran his information as well and all came back clear. The bar tab provided by the bartender supported that.

But lo and behold, the stranger he offered to give a ride home to, turned out to be a registered sex offender, according to the police report. He was given a ride home by police.
