If Star-Lord and Rocket Racoon, from Marvel’s, hit movie Guardians of the Galaxy, had a Corvette, it would probably look like this one, maybe. And while the cosmic wrap on the car is out of this world, the story behind how it ended up in the custody of Evansville, Indiana, is just as bizarre.
A concerned citizen called 911 to report a Corvette, “looking like the galaxy,” was driving recklessly while swerving and speeding down Mogan Avenue at 4:00 in the morning. Of course, the Police were dispatched for this unusual call as they set out to find the so-called galaxy Corvette. Offices located the convertible C6 Corvette with a cosmic wrap at a stoplight on Boeke and Morgan Avenue. Surprisingly, the driver and the passenger were found sleeping in the running vehicle. The officers also uncovered a loaded firearm and narcotics. Here is the post from the Evansville police department via its Facebook page.
“Around 4:00 this morning, a concerned citizen called 911 to report a Corvette being driven recklessly, speeding and swerving down Morgan Avenue. The caller described the vehicle as “looking like a galaxy”. Third shift officers located this attention-grabber stopped for the light at Boeke and Morgan Avenue. Officers found the driver and his passenger sound asleep with the engine running–not acceptable in any galaxy. Upon waking them and investigating further, a loaded gun was found in addition to illegal narcotics and pills. These two dreamers found themselves transported and booked into the county jail as well. Fortunately, the ride ended where it did, not resulting in an accident–plus, the narcotics were not used. Thanks to the concerned citizen and patrol officers, working together to keep these two from becoming “morning stars” in a negative way. Their “galaxy” wasn’t registered either and was towed; a reminder that illegal conduct can be expensive–and does not pay.”
According to News 14 in Evansville, the two suspects were booked and taken to jail. However, they did not say if the pair was, in fact, Star-Lord and Rocket, but we will keep you posted.
