A man who takes wine from a speeding truck

A California man reportedly climbed under a truck with wine and drank alcohol while the vehicle was driving on the freeway.

Gabriel Moreno, 39, was driving north on Highway 99 on Tuesday afternoon when he was transporting red wine in a Cherokee Freight Lines truck, The Modesto Bee reported.

California patrol Thomas Olsen told the newspaper that Moreno had caught the driver’s attention and indicated that something was wrong with the car.

When the truck pulled over on the side of the highway, Olsen said Moreno got out of his car in his underwear and ran to the back of the trailer.

The driver was out on the highway while Moreno opened the valve to drink wine in the car tank, Olsen said.

Olsen added that the driver could not see it, but noticed that the size of the dashboard indicated that the truck was taking off. He stepped back and found that Moreno was drinking wine.

Moreno “jumped down and stood under the belly of the truck and just enjoyed the wine,” Olson told the Modesto bee. “He lay on the floor making snow angels. Basically, while the wine flowed on him.”

Moreno was released Wednesday after a warrant for the coronavirus pandemic. However, according to the Stanislav County Sheriff’s Office, he was arrested again a few minutes later.

Ceres police tried to arrest Moreno, who allegedly tried to steal a truck from a landscape company, but an officer intervened and warned the authorities.

“Moreno was worried about his initial release and was not happy that he had not yet received a sandwich as part of the standard [Public Safety Center] food,” the sheriff’s office said. “To get a return visit to the prison, where he hopes to finally be able to enjoy his sandwich, Moreno tries to steal the company crew’s landscape truck.

The department added, “We congratulate our neighbors on mutual prosperity, congratulate our partners for the efforts of the CHP & Ceres police, and remind everyone that public security is a team effort. Moreno returned to prison on charges of misusing cars.”

However, car theft also qualifies for zero guarantees under the California Justice Council mandate to relieve the crowd in prison during a pandemic, a sheriff’s spokesman told Modesto Bee, causing Moreno to be released again on Thursday freed.

Cherokee Freight Lines, CHP and Stanislav Sheriff’s District were asked to comment.
