Open Post: Hosted By The Guy Who Hit A Cop Car While Watching “Saved By The Bell” While Driving

June 15, 2019 / Posted by:

God bless #Murica. 55-year-old Kevin Bacon, and not the actor as far as this Smoking Gun story knows, was allegedly watching clips from Saved By The Bell on his phone. Specifically an episode called “Screech’s Spaghetti Sauce.” While driving. And he hit a cop car. Wait, he really told the Thetford Police Department cops WHAT EPISODE he was watching? Did I type the #Murica hashtag yet? Someone check.

The officer whose car he sideswiped with his 2016 Chevrolet Spark on Thursday afternoon was reportedly helping a motorist on Vermont’s Interstate 91 when Mario Lopez’s 1990’s jheri curl obviously distracted Kevin.

After striking the police car, Bacon continued driving for a short distance, then stopped his vehicle before “fleeing the scene of the crash.” Bacon was apprehended about a mile from the crash scene.

The cop claims that Kevin Bacon didn’t even look up from his phone when he hit his car and just kept watchin’ and drivin’. He was arrested and charged with “gross negligent operation of a vehicle and leaving the scene of a crash.”

Kevin Bacon (you can’t help repeating the name) was also charged a fine for texting while driving and his court date is scheduled for July 31 if you want to drive to Vermont that day for some laughs.

Here’s the episode in question. Now that I’ve watched it, I understand. SBTB was a really good show and Dustin Diamond’s fake mustache is hypnotic.
