COAL CITY, IL – A police officer fell to the ground in a disoriented state after encountering an enigmatic cup containing a dangerous substance. 

The question on everyone’s mind: What exactly was hidden within that fateful cup?

Last Saturday, an unidentified officer conducted a routine traffic stop, only to discover an unassuming cup concealed within the vehicle. According to police, when the officer open the lid, he expose himself to an organic compound called HMTV. Instantly, the officer was engulfed by fumes emanating from the highly explosive material.

The harrowing encounter left the officer battling a burning sensation in his eyes and uncontrollable sinus reactions. Authorities suspect that the fumes played a role in his disorientation and subsequent fall. Thankfully, the officer’s injuries were not life-threatening, but the incident has raised significant concerns within the community.

The driver of the vehicle, Richard Saunders, a 47-year-old resident of Braceville, now finds himself facing serious charges. Saunders has been accused of aggravated battery of a police officer and unlawful possession of explosive material. 

Surprisingly, when questioned by the authorities, Saunders insisted that the cup contained nothing more than jewelry cleaner. In an additional twist, he was also charged with driving on a revoked license.

Saunders has since been released on bond.
