Lagos – Most people find it difficult to talk themselves out of getting a traffic fine, but a man in Illinois, USA, took it a step further and called 911 claiming that there was a shooting close to him, Huffington Post reports.
Jose Navarro, Jr, was pulled over the police and while he was at the traffic stop he called 911 and reported hearing eight gunshots and that a man was shot and lying close to him. Navarro hoped that it would cause the police that pulled him over to leave and go and inspect the more serious cause.
