Truck Driver Uses Sports Drink Bottle To Rig Broken Tail Light

Longmont police say they pulled over the man, a frequent oil company driver, while he was on his way to get his busted taillight fixed. The man was reportedly using a red-colored sports drink attached with duct-tape as his temporary replacement.

Cops let him go without a ticket, saying they saw him at a repair shop later that day. However, police officials warn that this type of "ingenuity" should never be a "permanent solution."
