Drunk went out window after cigarette blew away, Ark. police say


Updated: 11:35 a.m. ET May 24, 2005FOREMAN, Ark. - A leap of faith proved hazardous for a smoker in need of a cigarette fix after a night on the town.

Jeff Foran suffered trauma to his nose, eyes and chin after jumping from a car traveling 55-60 mph. Authorities said he was trying to retrieve a cigarette blown out of the passenger-side window.

Foran, 38, took the leap Saturday night, state police Trooper Jamie Gravier said.

The driver of the car, Jerry Glenn Nelson, said Foran had asked him earlier in the evening to be a designated driver after a night of drinking.

"Nelson said Foran was smoking a cigarette when it blew out the window and Foran jumped out the window to retrieve the cigarette. Nelson said he was driving between 55 and 60 mph when Foran jumped out," the trooper said.

“Foran did the right thing and asked his buddy to drive him home,” Gravier said. “It was obvious he was extremely intoxicated.”

Gravier added: “If anything could make him stop smoking, this should be it. The man is lucky to be alive.”

could you imagine!??!

The heavy drinking, and the bonus head trauma must've made for a level 10 hangover the next day.

The windowsill was made of a slate like material (bet you can see where this is going). The kid got some urine on the windowsill and apparently his feet shot out from under him towards the open window, I think the window must broken away because the opening is not all that big (though maybe big enough for a thin 19 year old fit through) . The fall killed him.




That reminds me of a joke.

"Two kids in Norway were having a contest who could lean the furthest out of a window.

Suddenly, one of them won."

There's nothing worse than your last smoke prematurely flying out the window, and you're 20 miles from the nearest 7-11.
