Idiot With Suspended License Runs Into Cop While Texting And Driving

Don't text while you're driving. Especially don't text while driving if your license has been suspended. And especially don't slam into a police car if you're texting while driving and your license has been suspended.

Police in Virginia say this act netted 25-year-old Alexander Bacon a litany of charges, including texting while driving, reckless driving, driving on a suspended operator's license, and failing to yield to an emergency vehicle.

WUSA9 News reports that Bacon's Ford swerved off a Manassas road and slammed into a stopped police car, as well as a car whose driver the officer was speaking to. The officer was injured, but not seriously, they report.

I hope the text message was worth it.
