Perhaps Carl Webb was expecting to hear that he had a broken taillight, or that he'd been speeding. Instead, the police officer who pulled him over on a Memphis interstate Thursday had this to say, per FOX13: "I'm not messing with you. There's a body on your trunk." It turns out Webb had driven 14 miles away from a barbeque festival without realizing that a man had fallen asleep on the 14-inch-wide trunk of his Ford Taurus. Webb says the officer had to wake the allegedly drunk man and put him in his cruiser after he nearly stumbled into traffic. (More strange stuff stories.)
