Elwood, Illinois Police have arrested Faraz Namdari, of Chicago for driving his semi-truck over the graves of veterans at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery acording to the Herald News;
Disobeying the “No Truck” signs posted at the entrance to the cemetery off Route 53, the driver told police he was traveling Monday afternoon to a warehouse located at the nearby intermodal facility operated by CenterPoint Properties, according to a news release from Elwood initiative Safe Roads Illinois.
There is no motivation given in the article, but an earlier, more local source caught the police chief speculating about the driver’s motivations;
Hayes also told WJOL that he’s never seen anything like this in all his years in law enforcement, “I’ve got to tell you, this was very blatant, to the point were I felt this person was intentionally trying to degrade the grave sites of our fallen veterans and our national cemetery. If I were able prove that he’d receive more then citations.”
Your mileage may vary, but I think the Chief is on to something.
