The photograph of the woman that accompanies the story isn't identified. Or is she associated with the ad below her photo? Important.

Is this a real news article? At what unsafe speed were they traveling at what time early in the morning? Was the unlicensed driver pimping and pandering while driving??.... a 36 year old woman? what evidence? Are the passengers of a stopped or followed to a parking lot car subject to interrogation to determine she is on probation???
I am questioning the article And police procedure.

@Chris, if you click on her photo, the woman is identified as Tollner. I agree that sometimes the juxtaposition of stories and ads is jarring but I assume random, and probably different on different days or for different viewers. There must be some ad software by now that would prevent inappropriate pairings, like on major news sites where I'll see a Disneyland ad next to a measles vaccine story.

Other sources indicate the time of morning as around 1 am. Seems half the drivers stopped by police at that hour are not carrying a valid license. I wonder what the statistic actually is.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
