Shearn had parked his truck several spots away from the nearest vehicle, but now saw that it had moved — and crashed into a parked car. The cop had been called to investigate, only to find a smiling Elvis behind the wheel.
"I was so confused," Shearn said. "The officer looked at me and said, ‘I bet your dog, somehow, someway, knocked the truck into drive.’"
Turns out, Shearn had brought along some fat to season his grandparents' cast-iron skillet and had left it on the dashboard. Evidently, in an attempt to sneak a taste while Shearn was out of sight, Elvis set the truck on its collision course.
No one, not even the other car's driver, had the heart to get upset, though; their reaction was quite the opposite: "Nobody was mad at Elvis," Shearn said. "Everyone was just dying of laughter."
