A Saudi man driving around with a dead child in the trunk of his car was pulled over in Tennessee — and he was allowed to drive off.

A Millersville police officer stopped the man because his car’s temporary tag was unreadable, local TV station KMOV reported. After producing a Saudi driver’s license, the driver admitted he had a dead baby in his trunk.

The driver said he was transporting the body for a proper Muslim burial and refused to allow the officer to look in the trunk, insisting it was against his religion, according to KMOV.

In a sign of how browbeaten police have become in today’s politically correct world, the officer actually let the man go.

Police officials later said at a press conference the driver, who was the child’s father, had a permit from the coroner that allowed him to transport the body.

The dead child was being taken to a private Muslim cemetery in Franklin, Millersville Police Chief David Hindman said, but he admitted that the officer erred in letting the man go without seeing the body and calling a supervisor.

Still, the officer will not be disciplined, Hindman said, adding that a language barrier became a significant factor in the mix-up.

“You have to understand this is a one in a million incident,” he said. “In my 30 years of law enforcement, I have never seen or heard of something like this happening.”
