  • So I'm responding to a call for a flipped car....

    at the local drag strip last night, when I turn the corner at the entrance and my light bar falls off my patrol car!!

    I look over and there it is hanging down the passenger side of the car by only the power cable, lights still rotating mind you, as I drive through the crowded raceway people laughing the whole way.

    Quite possibly one of the most embarrassing moments I've found on the job so far, I figured I had to share.

    Tell you what you have some balls. I would have kept that one to myself. What did the Sarge say?

        Oh it was quite priceless. I called him on the radio and said he had to meet me there, my sgt is in charge of all dept vehicles just so happens. He asked me if I was ok so I said "well sarge, my lightbar just fell off". I had several guys from the surrounding towns call me up to inquire about my newly aquired "stealth car" after that.

        Edit: When he got there we threw it back on the top and tied it down with a bungee cord to get back to the station. lmao

          Yeah especially make sure you check the screw that holds the mounting bracket on tight.

            I hope that no one caught it on tape......
            All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion and desire.

              Couple of years ago we had a mini tornado/down drafts, well a couple of our guys are rolling around making sure everyone is getting out of the way, both cars have lights on so the cams are rolling. We my buddy in the lead car takes a turn north on our main drag and bam a tree limb comes down just enough to send his lightbar to the pavement, second car got it on cam. Was greaaat! Luckily for my boy he had enough extra lights on his car (take homes) that he was allowed to roll in a "modified slick top" for a few weeks.

                Knowing my luck I'm quite sure someone did.

                      That must have been a great install job or a crappy light bar.
                      Had one dome flip off bar once and shatter on road when a seal let go.

                        Well being that the vehicle I was driving was 10 years old and the install lasted that long I guess it's not THAT bad. The screw on the bracket that held it on backed out from what it looked like. Thank GOD we're getting new vehicles in the next month (hopefully).

                          Reminds me of a Jeff Foxworthy Joke, You might be a redneck COP if you gotta use BUNGEE Cords to hold down that darn light bar...
                          I got nothing for now

                              Seriously, you sure they weren't laughing at your police car, and not just the light bar?

                              Hey ZGX- What city is that car in your picture from?
