The watching porn behind the wheel killed police officer

487

Kentucky man arrested after a car accident in which police officer died. According to official information, the suspect watched porn while driving, which prevented him from slowing down and provoked a collision.

The culprit of the accident was identified as Roger Burdette. Burdette was driving a truck for the Metro Sewer District when he slammed into the police cruiser belonging to Det. Deidre Mengedoht on Christmas Eve 2018, the police said.

The new documents allege there was “evidence that the defendant was using his phone to view a pornographic video at the time that (Burdette) was operating a semi-truck on the expressway and at the time that he crashed into and killed Detective Mengedoht.”

Burdette is charged with murder, wanton endangerment and aggravated DUI.

He’s due in court June 11 for a pre-trial conference, and the trial is scheduled to begin July 12. Prosecutors argue he was intoxicated on prescription pills when he got behind the wheel of the MSD truck, WKYT reports.
