I guess a semi-truck or a tank would be a pretty bad too, but with an ice cream truck you’re constantly surrounded by children, making the scenario potentially wayyy more tragic. And yeah, this happened.
NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. – Police say a Tampa Bay-area ice cream man was driving his truck while drunk when he almost hit a child.
The Pasco County Sheriff’s Office reports that 49-year-old Ronald Clifford Purdy was pulled over Monday afternoon after someone called 911 to report his driving.
Deputies say Purdy staggered out of the ice cream truck in New Port Richey and gave his birthday when he was asked for his address. The deputies also reported finding two open bottles of whiskey.
Annnnd he’s going to jail for a long time.
