  • To the guy I stopped tonight

    Because you seem like the type who would come on here and ask the following stupid questions, please let me go ahead and explain AGAIN:

    1. No, I do not have to 'flick' my lights as I'm passing you before turning around and stopping you for failure to dim. That is stupid. It would also mean I violated the statute by having MY high beams activated within 500 feet of an oncoming vehicle.

    2. 'But they are in (xxxx)'s lap' is not a good excuse for having three kids under the age of three riding outside of car seats on a highway.

    3. Yes, I can still stop you and write you a ticket (or tickets, in this case) even though you traveled that extra 20 yards to be outside of the city before pulling over. I have chased people to three counties away and arrested them. If you don't believe me, I will be back tomorrow at 7pm and we can play again.

    Thank you and feel free to have it explained again in court next month.

      I get the same, except I'm on the state border, so people will drive across the state line thinking I can't follow.

      If I'm in active pursuit, I can follow and still issue citation or arrest. The problem you do run into, you are not violating offenses in another state, so you can deal with that P.D. after I'm done. Guess you should have just stopped.

      I can also sit with my headlights off, it is NOT entrapment.

        I had a full blown chase.....................lights and siren 80mph for 10 miles one night.

        He got 100 feet over the county line (I was a sheriff's deputy) and pulled over.

        As I had him proned out at gunpoint waiting for backup ...................he was screaming that I couldn't do that because I was in the wrong county.

        It was a long 30 mile drive back to the jail for him that night...................with me laughing my head off the whole way. (long before in car cameras)

          We had a burglar pull that. Crossed over the state line, he should have stopped before. Got charged with the burglary in the one state, and charged with transporting stolen property over state lines here.

            He should have yelled, "Ollie Ollie Oxen Free!" *shaking my head* They always forget to do that!

              Did you have your hat on?

              (Hope he doesn't find out about the hat defense if you didn't)

                Chalk it up to another "unhappy" customer.

                Good job!
                This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

                  . . . . or the one who thinks he is free and clear because he pulled into his driveway and ran into his house.

                  Used to have a Lieutenant who's favorite saying (one of 'em) was "I've written many a ticket on the violator's coffee table."

                  Do not stop - do not pass go.

                    Chased a guy once through the city to his driveway. The last thing I heard him say at the end of his driveway before an old Sgt took him to the ground like a linebacker tackling a half witted running back was, "Ha ha, you can't get me, I made it to my driveway." The next thing he said after getting the wind knocked out of him was, "God, you didn't have to do that! I wasn't resisting." Nope not anymore he wasn't. Was the fastest I ever saw that Sgt move.
                    Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented immigrant" is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist"

                      LOL, I had the same thing happen to me. I guess the guy thought his "castle" was like a foreign embassy.

                        Per Cajunguy; . . . "or the one who thinks he is free and clear because he pulled into his driveway and ran into his house." About 2300 hrs. one night we had the same thing with an 18 yr old. Running 60+ in a residential area. He drove over the curb into his parents yard, bailed out, ran up the front porch steps into the house with us right behind. He tried to run upstaires. We got him by an ankle and he was trying to hold onto the banisters. We employed alittle carotid restraint and walked him back outside. The last we saw dad, he was standing on the front porch yelling "I'm calling my attorney!. Our Sergeant just showed up and standing at the bottom of the steps said to my cover and I "I bet that will be the most expensive phone call that guy ever makes." You got to love those Sergeants with a sense of humor.

                          Regarding the jurisdictional thing.

                          Believe it or not, OP... I was at a call for a local municipality in my county, and some clown looks at me says I was there illegally and didn't have jurisdiction. I go, "look at the patch... it says XXXX county, not PART OF XXX county!!!"

                          so he calls 911.... sigh.

                            Love that. We chase them into Minnesota all the time. They end up charged with fleeing in both states. Its great to see the look on their face when they find out they just doubled the pain.

                              I had a crack adult company specialist steal a kid's bike and run into a church to claim sanctuary. I can only figure the last hotel room she was in had a special on Manuel Noriega and she thought we'd try to blast her out with rock music instead of walking in and cuffing her up.
                              I miss you, Dave.
