Then, everything went to pot. Literally. A UPD officer was driving along Interstate 80 near 7200 West about 2:30 p.m. Monday when a rented Nissan Maxima in front of him pulled over the side of the road, its hazard lights on. “Our officer pulled over to see if he needed help, and in the process of talking with the driver became suspicious,” said UPD Lt.

Rich Christianson said the trooper was finishing a traffic stop about 6:15 a.m. in the emergency lane of southbound Interstate 15 near the 2100 North exit area in Lehi when he looked up to see a semi inches away from his face.
