19-year-old California teen Jerimiah Hartline has been arrested and accused of stealing a 3 axle tractor truck on Saturday. Hartline was then alleged to have sped off down the California Highway in the huge vehicle, clipping various other cars before jackknifing it and flipping it onto its side blocking all 4 lanes!

Hartline claimed that he had to take the vehicle and drive in such an erratic manner because he was being chased by zombies. Now young Jeremiah has either been reading the book of most implausible excuses ever that should never be given to a police officer if don’t want to serve jail time or he was high as a kite and actually believed that some brain-eating undead was hot on his tail (or shuffling slowly after him)!

We believe it to be the later, because California Highway Patrol officer Nathan Baer told reporters that Hartline was “arrested at the crash scene and appeared to be in an altered state, claiming he was being chased by zombies.”

We’re not sure exactly when Hartline started seeing the zombies, but his whole crazy adventure started at Riverside County weigh station where it is alleged that he pilfered the big rig that had a cargo of strawberries. Meh, perishables – they aren’t going to do you much good in a zombie apocalypse!

Everyone who knows anything about zombie survival also knows that a vehicle like that is totally useless in a zombie apocalypse because it’s not nearly nimble enough! But hey, maybe the sight of blood-soaked, undead brain-munchers breathing their stinky rotten corpse breath down his neck caused Hartline to panic and take the first available form of transportation.
Anyways, so our unhero then takes off down Interstate 15, causing various different crashes and injuring 7 people (2 seriously) before landing the vehicle on its side, sprawling it out across the entire highway.

It seemed that the zombies were still chasing Hartline, because he fled the vehicle and attempted to steal a van. Zombies or no zombies, this van driver wasn’t having any of Hartline’s crap and detained the teenage until police arrived on the scene and arrested him.

He was treated at a hospital and booked into a French Valley jail, we do not know if the zombies followed him to the jailhouse.

This people, is why taking acid and watching The Walking Dead is not advisable.
