Drink responsibly, they said!
Wine tasting just got redefined by a man named Gabriel Moreno who thought it was a great idea to sip it directly out of a moving tanker on the national highway. As reported by CBS Sacramento, the incredible wine heist begins with the man indicating the tanker driver to stop by the side. The driver thought that he was being pointed to some mechanical failure only to find Gabriel emerge out of the car in his underwear and rush towards the tanker.
As the tanker driver pulled away from the side, another dashcam footage showed Gabriel hanging on to the truck and disappearing out of the driver's view behind the truck. The driver soon realized that he was losing fluid from his tanker and contacted highway patrol.
Gabriel had managed to unscrew the valve below the truck and gulped heartily as gallons of wine flowed out of it on the highway. Modesto CHP officer Tom Olsen told the news outlet: "I’ve listened to thousands and thousands of calls. This one’s up there in the top 10."
The trucking company, according to the news, reportedly lost over a 1,000 gallons of red wine to the highway, enough to fill around 5,000 bottles.
