Man leaps from speeding car in pursuit of a puff


Drunk went out window after cigarette blew away Ark. police say

FOREMAN, Ark. - A leap of faith proved hazardous for a smoker in need of a cigarette fix after a night on the town.

Jeff Foran suffered trauma to his nose, eyes and chin after jumping from a car traveling 55-60 mph. Authorities said he was trying to retrieve a cigarette blown out of the passenger-side window.

Foran, 38, took the leap Saturday night, state police Trooper Jamie Gravier said.

The driver of the car, Jerry Glenn Nelson, said Foran had asked him earlier in the evening to be a designated driver after a night of drinking.

"Nelson said Foran was smoking a cigarette when it blew out the window and Foran jumped out the window to retrieve the cigarette. Nelson said he was driving between 55 and 60 mph when Foran jumped out," the trooper said.

“Foran did the right thing and asked his buddy to drive him home,” Gravier said. “It was obvious he was extremely intoxicated.”

Gravier added: “If anything could make him stop smoking, this should be it. The man is lucky to be alive.”

Watching how smokers can bare below freezing temps for a smoke, I've always admired their determination... Chat IconChat IconChat Icon

I don't think its so funny. The guy could have been killed. Yes, it was a total idiot move but he very well could have been completely intoxicated and had very little idea of what he was doing.

Yes he could have been killed. But when was the last time you were SOOO drunk that jumping out of car sounded like a good idea?
I have had my fair share of DRUNK nights but have never done anything this insane.

He was pretty much killing himself already being a smoker. Chat Icon

I do!!! I have had my share of nights out drinking like crazy. I have never done anything stupid like that, and none of my friends have either.
