A traffic stop on Interstate 15 near Washington Avenue took a turn for the surreal last year.

In video released by the Nevada Highway Patrol, a trooper was speaking with a driver they stopped for speeding last June when a beer truck that was passing by lost its load and sent a wave of beer flying at them.

The troopers were hit with glass and sprayed with beer. No serious injuries were reported.

It turns out another vehicle had cut off the supply truck causing the crash.

The car that was pulled over had all the windows down and the interior was drenched with beer. As for the driver who had been stopped, troopers let that person go without a ticket.
