Remember last summer’s car surfing in the Crystal Lake Walmart parking lot?

Police discovered that twenty year old Austin Watts of 1969 Governor’s Lane, Hoffman Estates, IL had fallen from the roof area of a moving vehicle and struck his head on the pavement in the parking lot.

Watts had been riding on the rooftops of two vehicles before he fell from a vehicle driven by Stephen D. Gallagher (19), of 1806 Hemlock Place, Schaumburg, IL.

The Daily Herald reports that Gallagher plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving and got six  months in the McHenry County Jail.
