Drugs may have been involved

The California Highway Patrol responded Thursday morning to a car fire in Truckee that the driver reportedly started to try to scare away bears. 

According to CHP Officer Carlos Perez, officers responded around 5:30 a.m. to reports of a car fire alongside Interstate 80 near the Farad exit. When officers arrived, they found that a man had lit a fire on the hood of his car in an attempt to “keep bears away,” Perez said.


  1. Backfired, the blaze attracted the bears.

  2. "It seemed like a good idea at the time."

  3. It would have been funny if while gathering wood for his fire he'd been bit by a rattlesnake.

  4. Yeah, but WHICH drugs?

    Sounds like a Hunter Thompson story.

  5. Give the guy some credit. The story said there were no bears. Good job!

    Reminds me of one of my favorite lines. Being paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you!!!
