A motorist in the United States got the shock of a lifetime when he was pulled over by police because a man was passed out on the boot of his car.

According to local media reports, the drunk man had fallen asleep on the boot of Carl Webb's car while it was parked.


Webb and his wife had been at BBQ Fest in downtown Memphis, and returned to the car to drive home. Unfortunately, the couple did not notice the man on the car boot and proceeded to drive 14 miles down the interstate before they were pulled over by police.

Webb was surprised by the police stop, and when officers questioned him about the man's presence on the car he had no idea what they were talking about.

Police eventually managed to wake the drunk man before they detained him.
