Have you ever seen many cops at Taco Bell? Not in my experience, unless they're chasing criminals for this column. And that's how a cop ended up getting his car stuck on a boulder.
Naperville police have launched an internal investigation into a bizarre incident, in which a police officer managed to get his squad car stuck atop a decorative boulder in the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant.
No one was injured during the incident. It occurred about noon Monday at the Taco Bell restaurant at 2775 Aurora Ave. on Naperville's far west side.
Sgt. Bill Davis, the police department's public information officer, said the officer behind the wheel of the squad car at the time "was attempting to turn around in the lot to check on a vehicle when he over-steered, and drove over the curb and the rock."
The squad car, No. 188, came to rest almost precisely atop the boulder's peak.
