A police story.

My husband sent this to me. I hope you enjoy it!


WYOMING STATE POLICE - GOTTA LOVE 'EM
!IN MOST OF THE NORTHERN STATES, THERE IS A POLICY OF CHECKING ON ANYSTALLEDVEHICLE ON THE HIGHWAY WHEN THE TEMPERATURES DROP DOWN TO THE SINGLEDIGITS OR BELOW.
ABOUT 3 A.M. ONE VERY COLD MORNING IN MARCH 2004, A STATE POLICEOFFICER RESPONDED TO A CALL: THERE WAS A CAR OFF THE SHOULDER OF THE ROAD ONTHEOUTSKIRTS OF CASPER. HE LOCATED THE CAR, STUCK IN DEEP SNOW AND WITH THE ENGINE STILL RUNNING. PULLING IN BEHIND THE CAR WITH HIS EMERGENCY LIGHTS ON, THE OFFICER WALKED TO THE DRIVER'S DOOR TO FIND AN OLDER MAN PASSED OUT BEHIND THE WHEEL WITH A NEARLY EMPTY VODKA BOTTLE ON THE SEAT BESIDE HIM.THE DRIVER CAME AWAKE WHEN THE OFFICER TAPPED ON THE WINDOW. SEEING THE ROTATING LIGHTS IN HIS REAR VIEW MIRROR AND THE STATE POLICEMAN STANDING NEXT TO HIS CAR, THE MAN PANICKED, JERKED THE GEARSHIFT INTO " DRIVE" AND HIT THE GAS. THE CAR'S SPEEDOMOTER WAS SHOWING 20-30-40 AND THEN 50 MPH, BUT IT WAS STILL STUCK IN THE SNOW, WHEELS SPINNING. THE POLICEMAN, HAVING A SENSE OF HUMOR, BEGAN RUNNING IN PLACE NEXT TO THE SPEEDING, BUT STILL STATIONARY, CAR. THE DRIVER WAS TOTALLY FREAKED THINKING THE OFFICER WAS ACTUALLY KEEPING UP WITH HIM.THIS GOES ON FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS WHEN THE PATROL MAN YELLED AT THEM ANORDERING HIM TO "PULL OVER!" THE MAN OBEYED, TURNED HIS WHEEL AND STOPPED THE ENGINE. NEEDLESS TO SAY, THE MAN FROM CASPER WAS ARRESTED AND IS PROBABLY STILL SHAKING HIS HEAD OVER THE STATE PATROLMAN WHO COULD RUN 50 MILES PERHOUR. WHO SAYS POLICEMAN DON'T HAVE A SENSE OF HUMOR?

Sorry about the all caps. I am not feeling well so I will have to edit even more than what I did. In the mean time I hope you will forgive me for the Yelling.. :)

Sometimes a good police story is all about the yelling ;)

The "yelling" was actually easy reading. Couldn't you just picture this as you read it? I could.

I could picture that in my head, I was surprised that the man didn't even notice that he sat stuck in the snow. I just think that is the weirdest thing in the world.
