That is some sound sleeper, what with the sirens going off all around them during the traffic stop.
You would have to be passed out not awaken to police sirens today with their deafening volume.
She was most definitely NOT asleep.
According to the story:
...officers activated lights and sirens and yelled at Mr. Polanco to pull over, but he sped up and continued driving, which escalated the officers level of alertness. He was a danger to other motorists on the road, Mr. Karasyk said. A reasonable person doesnt refuse to pull over in response to a police vehicle flashing lights and sirens. They actually had to box him in and pull him over.
I agree. I cannot believe that woman was still passed out drunk in the back seat with all that racket going on when they finally forced the guy to pull over.
