True Cop Stories


The woman in question, a cute blonde as it happens, was pulled over for
speeding by a California Highway Patrol motorcycle officer. When he
walked up to her window and opened his ticket book she said: "I bet
you're going to sell me a ticket to the Highway Patrolman's Ball."  He
replied, "No, highway patrolmen don't have balls."  There followed a
moment of silence while she smiled and he realized what he'd said.  He
then closed his book, got back on his motorcycle and left.  She was
laughing too hard to start her car for several minutes.

A motorist was unknowingly caught in an automated speed trap that
measured his speed using radar and photographed his car.  He later
received in the mail a ticket for $40, and a photo of his car. Instead
of payment, he sent the police department a photograph of $40. Several
days later, he received a letter from the police department that
contained another picture-of handcuffs.

A man goes to a party and has too much to drink.  His friends plead with
him to let them take him home.  He says no - he only lives a mile away.
About five blocks from the party the police pull him over for weaving
and ask him to get out of the car and walk the line. Just as he starts,
the police radio blares out a notice of a robbery taking place in a
house just a block away.  The police tell the party animal to stay put,
they will be right back - and they run down the street to the robbery. 
The guy waits and waits and finally decides to drive home.  When he gets
there, he tells his wife he is going to bed, and to tell anyone who
might come looking for him that he has the flu and has been in bed all
day.  A few hours later the police knock on the door.

They ask if Mr. X lives there and his wife says yes.  They ask to see
him and she replies that he is in bed with the flu and has been so all
day. The police have his driver's license.  They ask to see his car and
she asks why.  They insist on seeing his car, so she takes them to the
garage and opens the door where they find: the police car, lights still
flashing.

A police officer had a perfect hiding place for watching for speeders. 
But one day, everyone was under the speed limit, the officer found the
problem:  a 10 year old boy was standing on the side of the road with a
huge hand painted sign which said "RADAR TRAP AHEAD." A little more
investigative work led the officer to the boy's accomplice, another boy
about 100 yards beyond the radar trap  with a sign reading "TIPS" and a
bucket at his feet, full of cash.
