West Georgia mattress movers face charges

COLUMBUS, Ga. -- A man and woman were arrested for reckless conduct after police observed the woman driving with a mattress on her roof — and the man laying on top of the mattress, according to Columbus police.

The Ledger-Enquirer reports about 4 a.m. Wednesday, patrolling officers saw a Jeep driving on 2nd Avenue with an unsecured mattress on its roof.

After initiating a traffic stop, the officer reportedly asked the driver, Samantha Tate, why there was a man laying on her mattress, and no straps.

“Our ratchet straps broke,” she said, according to the report.
