April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month.

Our first prime example of how not to drive in Minnesota comes from Chisago County, where the Sheriff's Office received a report Tuesday of "poor driving conduct."

Following up on the call, the responding Sergeant was shocked to find the guilty motorist driving with a pig on his lap!

The Chisago County Sheriff's Office posted a photo of the offender and his porky friend to Facebook:

With a touch of humor, the Chisago County Sheriff's Office admits that finding a pig on a lap was a first even for them! Though on a serious note, they also clarify that it does qualify as distracted driving.

April is Distracted Driving Awareness month, and Minnesota drivers can expect extra patrols as they enforce a MN Toward Zero Deaths initiative.

P.S. -- if you look close, you can spot an additional piglet in the photo!
