Some Louisville, Ky., police officers got the surprise of their careers when they pulled over a car with expired license plates: a man bound in the trunk.
Shawn Bloemer, 22, could hear the officers from inside the cramped space.
“I heard a voice and I could tell from his inflection of what have you that he was an officer. He came back and asked about insurance and that’s when I started kicking and punching on the hood, yelling,” Bloemer said.
Bloemer, a clerk at a local Circle K convenience store, says he was captured after his late-night shift and locked in the trunk of his own car after he discovered three people -- Brittany Elder, Trent Blye, and Joseph Davis -- trying to steal his tires. Bloemer said Blye assaulted him, along with the others.
"He started to hit me, struck me in the head, punched me in the stomach a couple of times," Bloemer said. "They shoved me headfirst into the light post."
