Hitchhiker gets a ride from authorities
A hitchhiker got a lift to his destination – in a cop car.
In the early morning of February 13, a Nelson Police officer was patrolling just west of Nelson and he came across a male hitchhiking. The hiker was heading from Calgary to Vancouver where he said he was scheduled to appear in criminal court.
Upon checking out the man’s story, officers learned the hitchhiker had a warrant out for his arrest and was taken into custody.
“Instead of hitch hiking to Vancouver the male was transported to Vancouver criminal court courtesy of the Province of British Columbia,” said a release issued to the Star.
