When police in suburban Philadelphia pulled an ice cream truck over on the highway, suspecting the driver was drunk, they couldn’t have imagined it would result in such a bizarre crime report.
Officers claimed the driver, Yassir Hassman, was clearly drunk. But what they found next surprised them.
According to theNew York Daily News, police found “several” boxes of wine in the truck and three full water bottles of urine — one of which was in his ice cream freezer.
Hassan, 46, was spotted by police in his Jack & Jill ice cream truck, weaving back and forth across lanes in southbound traffic. “The truck smelled like a giant carton of rum raisin,” the Daily News noted.
