Thankfully, Truck Nuts have proven to be more fad than fashion, but that hasn't stopped a few truck owners from donning the hitch-mounted clock weights. Those who continue to hold their Truck Nuts near and dear should keep in mind that South Carolina law enforcement is having none of it.
The Smoking Gun reports that one Joe Cervantes-Rodriquez recently spent a night in jail thanks to his flesh-colored pickup balls. A Spartanburg County Sherrif's Office deputy spotted the Truck Nuts during a patrol and decided to pull over the driver.

For the Truck Nuts, Cervantes-Rodriquez was given a warning citation; for not having a driver's license he spent the night in jail-an experience that would likely have been avoided were it not for the "obscene object" that triggered the traffic stop, which was described as being the size of a softball and anatomically correct.

Cervantes-Rodriquez was released from jail after posting a $237.50 bond. We'd guess that he's since removed the Truck Nuts.

      I saw a lifted F350 with around 40" tires and dual semi truck style exhaust out the back, all blacked out and a ginormous pair of black testicles (about the size of soccer balls) hanging off the back...It was pretty hilarious! But I'm an adult and I wouldn't want my kids seeing that kind of stuff.

      And in other news, in North Carolina, two trucks with trucknuts are not allowed to marry.

      So from here on out we are going to make male dogs, cats, and farm animals wear pants? These prude Christians shouldn't be allowed to enact so much legislation... "land of the free" my ass when you don't even have the freedom for a gag as stupid and harmless as this.

        If I had to choose between "prude Christians" enacting laws or say, someone like you, I think I'll side with the other. At least they will have my wife and children protected from having to look at images of a mans ********* in the way to school, church, etc... Just because they chose to drive or ride a bus. Get a life. Better yet, move to a country that doesn't care about decency--and see where it got them. I hope you aren't registered to vote

          And let me guess, you're not a prude bible beater yourself. Who else would need to protect their wife and children from harmless pieces of plastic... My life is not involved with worrying about harmless things of no consequence, and yes I will continue to vote and try to keep your superstitious beliefs out of our government and legal system..

      looks to me that the guy was just a victim of racial profiling, it is a fact that many inmigrants drive without a valid driver license,so the cop used this as a excuse to pull him over.

        Racial profiling; invalid driver's license. Hello dipshit! They should all be pulled over and arrested for driving illegally, regardless of whatever excuse these cops find to pull them over. Don't wanna make yourself obvious? Take the damn testicles off your truck. In fact, take off all the tacky chrome **** you guys plaster all over your cars and trucks while you're at it.

      Hey, Autobloggers, I think we should all work together on spreading a rumour -- Truck Nuts are a way of advertising you're gay! Just equate it to tapping your foot in a bathroom stall, or something (which is also illegal)...... Of course, real gay men wouldn't be caught doing this (there are a thousand better ways to meet other gays), so the problem will clear itself up in a couple of years.

      You know the mentally handicaped individual who has these on his truck? His vote for President counts just as much as yours. And he's allowed to own as many guns as he wants. It's this realization that makes me saddest of all.

      Only a corrupt know-it-all pig would pull over people for this 'act'. There is nothing engorged and nothing sexual about the plastic balls so I don't understand the obscenity allegations. Why waste time, wait, I get it. Cops arrest these folks so real criminals can rob and burgle with impunity. Congratulations S Carolina, once again home of the stupidest humans on earth!

      While I hate these things as much as the next guy, having to spend a night in jail because of them is far beyond excessive. It seems like law enforcement's answer to everything now-a-days is arrest.

        He didn't spend the night in jail because of the nutz, he spent the night in jail for not having a driver's license.
