THE COMMENT THAT WON THE INTERNET

First off, something’s wrong with this story.

It alleges truck driver drove across the country non-stop fueled by drugs.

Given the number of weigh stations how the hell was he able to fake his books without the computer systems not catching it?

But this comment wins the internet:

—-Bet he was white.

———-Probably, after all, truck driving IS A JOB

Massachusetts police on Tuesday arrested a truck driver who they say drove 3,000 miles without rest from Washington state while allegedly hopped up on a combination of crystal methamphetamine, LSD, and cocaine.

Gary Robbins, a truck driver from Homer, Alaska, was charged on Tuesday with driving while under the influence of drugs as well as ‘a laundry list’ of motor vehicle violations, the Deerfield Police Department said.

The speed at which he was driving is not known, but if he had maintained a speed of 60mph, his journey would have taken him 42 hours and 52 minutes.

Robbins was arrested after witnesses reported him allegedly behaving erratically at the Greenfield Road Circle K parking lot on Tuesday, according to The Recorder.

‘[A] Circle K employee noticed something was up, that wasn’t normal,’ a police spokesperson said. ‘He was running around the parking lot and was confrontational.’

Police said that Robbins threw his credit cards into the truck’s fuel tank and ‘locked himself out of the truck.’

Robbins was then said to have tried to climb into the cab through the space between the cab and the trailer, according to police.

Police said that Robbins was in the parking lot for a refuelling stop after he had finished delivering raspberry roots to the area.

When a police officer arrived, ‘he began speaking with (Robbins) and the driver was clearly acting combative and showing signs of drug use,’ Deerfield police said.

Robbins exhibited symptoms of drug use, including dilated pupils, according to authorities.

‘He was clearly a danger to himself and others,’ a police spokesperson said. ‘It appeared the driver didn’t rest, only used drugs, and he drove from Seattle, Wash., to Deerfield, with a destination on the East Coast.’

Police said that Robbins admitted to using drugs, though he refused to be transported to the hospital.

‘Officers had quite the struggle to get this truck driver to the Baystate Franklin Medical Center,’ police said.

Robbins had his driver license revoked and his truck impounded and sent for inspection.

He has also been summoned to appear in court.

    There was a time when doing something like this made you a hero. Did anyone question Charles Lindburgh after his non-stop flight? I think not? The man was a hero dammit.
