Criminals do the dumbest things. (double feature)
By, Officer Mac.
I got sent to take a report for a stolen vehicle the other night, no
biggie, routine report. Only problem is my victim was lying through his
teeth. He claimed to have gone to a party, although he couldn't remember
the address where he went, and left the party after he had gotten trashed
with a guy he had just met. only knew his first name, and let this person
drive his car. He said this person drove by a new housing development
and for no apparent reason, pulled a gun and forced him out of the car,
and then drove off. Now, the rest of the story.
I was contacted prior to arriving at this tard's house by an officer working
multiple hit and run call. Seems someone in a car that, miracle of miracles,
had the same license plate number and description as my victims car, had
hit several vehicles, and a couple concrete mailboxes and fled the scene.
He was however, kind enough to leave the front bumper complete with license
plate on scene.
I kept this info to myself for the first part of the interview, I didn't
have to talk to my victim much, It seemed his mommy did most of his talking
for him because he was to sloppy drunk to answer for himself. Mom even
answered when I asked dad questions, wow.
A much longer story short, I sweated him about the flaws in his story
and after he filled out the stolen vehicle affidavit, I promised him that
I would be back to hook him up for the false report and the hit and runs
should his story be BS, which I told him that I was sure his was.
The next morning, complete with Mom, Dad, half his family and the pastor
of his church in tow, he came to the sector where I work and turned himself
in, fessing up to the hit and runs and the fake car jacking. He has said
in the interview that he wanted to go into the Army, wonder if they'll
want him now ?
A speed indeed....

I got sent to try and catch up with a citizen who was following a drunk
driver. First off, let me just say this: If you are determined to follow
a drunk driver till the police catch up..... don't chase this person at
excessive speeds! Now off the soap box and on with the story.
I'm coming North bound on the street they were supposed to be on, when
the vehicle that was indicated on my call screen to be the Drunk's ride
passed me going south bound at about 78 mph in a 40 mph zone. Naturally
I turned and got after him : Chase On !!
We went round and round on back streets for about 5 minutes, he either
got dizzy, sick or both and stopped in the middle of the street. Door
flies open and out he comes to flee on foot, at least till his seat belt
I saw it and I still cannot explain how his foot became tangled in his
seatbelt..... but it did and down he goes face first onto the blacktop.
one in custody. After it was all said and done, 18 years old and blew
a .219 and a .220 !! Legal limit is .08........ I don't figure the ounce
and a half of weed he had on him helped his sobriety any either. After
his little performance on tape in the intox room at the jail, this one
will never see trial if his lawyer is smart.
