HOP HEAD (Illinois license) - still at it
On November 19, 2008, I wrote about a dangerous driver, in a Lexus with Illinois license plate HOP HEAD. Now, who gets a plate like that? You can read that article here: http://woodstockadvocate.blogspot.com/2008/11/does-roadway-come-with-lexus.html
Six months later a reader found my November article and posted a comment to it. Because that comment wouldn’t be immediately visible to current readers, I wrote about that comment in a new article on May 9, 2009. You can read the second article here: http://woodstockadvocate.blogspot.com/2009/05/hop-head-spotted-again.html
The owner of that license plate is apparently still at it. Last week I was contacted by a man whose motorcycle was damaged in a hit-and-run driver in Michigan. Witnesses tried to stop the driver of the car with Illinois license HOP HEAD.
On June 15, 2016, a comment was posted to the May 9, 2009, article about that hit-and-run. The vehicle was found and impounded by the Chikaming Township, Mich. Police. Chikaming Township is near the southwest corner of Michigan.
“Here is [sic] is years later, but this menace is still a danger on the loose and on the streets. My motorcycle was parked on the street in Sawyer, Michigan on Friday, June 10, 2016, when a newer Lexus ES350 Sedan, white, knocked it over and took off. Witnesses reported the same Illinois "Hop Head" license plate on the suspect car, which was spotted a couple of hours later and towed as evidence by the local Chikaming Township police. We'll see if maybe justice will be served this time.”
Anybody know this guy? His picture is included with the November 19, 2008 article.
