February 19p 2011 Titus scores vs. Illini Central BOB GASAWAY Photo Lie and then stupidly brag about it By Mike Lakin Chief Lynn Freer was parked on Morgan at Wash- ington observing traffic on the city square. He could hear vehicles with loud exhaust circling the square. He couldn't tell which vehi- cles were in violation. A black pick-up passed the Christian Church entrance, and with several youths parked along the church, the driver of the black pick-up put "the vehicle in neutral and accelerated the motor causing the exhaust to become extremely loud. The "show" took place in front of the Chief's squad car. The stop was made. When asked for license and proof of insurance, only the insurance was provided. The driver stated he did not have his wallet or license on him. Asked for his name, the driver provided a name and date of birth. Told of the reason for the stop, the driver stated he understood and figured "it was coming". The name provided came back with a valid driver's license. The driver was issued a cita- tion "Mufflers, prevention of noise". The driver was allowed to drive away. And now for the Rest of the Story After the driver was allowed to leave the traffic stop, he went back up to the square and stated to .several youths that he had lied about his name and got away with just a citation. Got away... really? Chief Freer was told about what was said. Chief Freer talked to the individual whose name was given. Check. It wasn't him. Given a name of someone that was a "possible", Chief Freer went to his house. Check. It wasn't him. lie was given another name. A Lincoln resident. Boy was that kid surprised to see Chief Freer at his door. It was "Liar, liar, pants on fire" for the one who gave the false name. The kid was informed he was going to be charged with obstruction of justice and driving with no valid license. The kid said he "was just scared to death" when he was pulled over. He had been arrested prior to his trip to Mt. Pulaski for driving without a license and obstruction justice. The kid's court file just doubled in size. Chief Freer told him he'd be in touch with his mother. Mt. Pulaski Times Caleb Dean & Colby Robert Cyrulik are the twin sons of Zachary Dane Cyrulik and Christy Lynn Hicks of Maroa.
