Here’s a story that will rejuvenate your Christmas spirit!
On Thursday morning on westbound Interstate 74 near State Road 39, Master Trooper Don Farris stopped a white 2014 Dodge van for a minor traffic violation.
The driver was identified as Christopher T. Hansen of Indianapolis, IN.
After issuing Hansen a warning, Hansen asked Trooper Farris if he wanted to look at his reindeer passenger in the rear of the van.
Farris took a look and sure enough, it was an adult reindeer.
Hansen explained that he has a business, Silly Safaris Shows Inc. of Indianapolis, IN and he was on his way to Attica, IN in Fountain County to put on a show at an elementary school.
Officials say pictures were taken and pleasantries were exchanged, all reminding folks of the spirit of Christmas, and that you never know what might transpire during a traffic stop along our highways.
