There are some great places off the highway in South Beloit, Illinois for truckers to stop and unwind. Need food? How bout a drink? Nice shower? Drinks? Maybe a nice little snoooozze? OR get hammered! Anyway, S. Beloit has it all. South Beloit Police Dept

Ladies and gentlemen allow me to introduce you to Laura Meredik. South Beloit Police received a call about a drunk truck driver at the Flying J. Upon arriving, what they encountered was truly "something else."

Laura was hammered and not having this whole "law and order" thing. She argued and fought with the cops....like attempting to punch the officers as they tried to remove her from her truck. WTH.

Realizing that wasn't going to end well, the lovely Laura attempted to PUT THE SEMI IN GEAR AND DRIVE AWAY. There was a "tussle," and the intoxicated truck driver and an officer fell to the ground. Luckily the officer was not seriously injured.

Seriously. the bs our officers go through...no two days are the same. LOL.

Eventually, they got Laura into custody and she's being held in the Winnebago County Jail. After it's all said and done, and all the White Claws were empty, Laura was charged with:

  • Commercial Motor Vehicle DUI
  • Aggravated battery to a law enforcement officer X 2
  • Criminal damage to government property
  • Resisting arrest
  • Drinking all the White Claws

Truck drivers lead a VERY dangerous lifestyle out on the road...imagine one THIS drunk behind to wheel? No thank you, ma'am. Sober up and go back to where you came from...quietly.
