Connecticut Driver Caught Speeding Blames an Oreo
SALISBURY, Conn. — Police say a man's excuse for speeding through a small Connecticut town takes the cake — or, at least, the cookie. A state trooper who stopped the 1993 BMW says its driver, 28-year-old Justin Vonkummer of Millerton, N.Y., blamed the driving problems on an errant Oreo. Police say Vonkummer told the trooper that an Oreo had just slipped from his fingers as he dunked it in a cup of milk, and that he was trying to fish it out.
