People who could have avoided being arrested if they weren’t dumb
It seems like common sense, but I’ll just throw this out there: If you’re speaking to a police officer, and everything is totally chill, don’t say/do anything that will force that police officer to arrest you.
You think that would be common sense, but as these stories demonstrate, some folks didn’t get the memo.
Noise complaint call from a house, which 99% of the time is a warning. Loud guy is super drunk and says “my music couldn’t have been that bad I just drove home.” Person who made the complaint says, yeah he just got home and turned on the loud music, I saw him drive up.
Guilty verdict for second offense DUI at the jury trial for the loud guy. He was super confused when I started doing a field sobriety test on a noise complaint call.
Not LEO, but have a great story.
Officer is off duty and taking wife to get ice cream. Walks up to window, kid sees guy and recognizes him as a cop.
“Shit, I knew you guys would show up at some point.”
Cop had no idea what kid was taking about, but played along.
“You really should have known. Will this go easy? What can you tell me? The more you’re honest, the better it could be for you.”
Kid proceeds to spill guts about being a driver for a B&E that happened recently.
Cop calls in for a cruiser, arrests the kid, and never got his ice cream.
Not a cop, but… saw a guy get escorted off a bus for playing his music device too loudly and I guess having his feet up on a seat. Woudn’t respond to the driver. When the police had him off of the bus, he went with them calmly. There were three cops. They were talking to him, and suddenly he takes a swing at one of them.
That was one fast take-down…
Obligatory not an officer, but I was on a ride along with a State Trooper. He pulled this girl over and after running her info she had a warrant so she needed to be taken in. She didn’t want to leave her dog and car on the side of the road so she asked to see if her boyfriend could come pick her car up. 20 mins later the boyfriend was there. Trooper ran his license to make sure he was good to drive. He had a warrant also, so he went to jail too.
This was a kid I went to school with. He is a whack job and always has been. He was expelled from my middle school for writing bomb threats.
A couple years ago (he was 19 I think), a member of his family found a gun that he had and turned it into the police. All he had to do was either ignore it and lose his gun or go in and prove that he had paper work to back it up. Instead he chose to go in and claim to be a homeland security agent (with a fake badge to back it up). Police searched his home and found an arsenal of weapons and explosives.
I had a guy falsify his information because he thought he had a warrant. The guy whose information he gave me had a felony warrant. After I slap on the cuffs he tells me he lied and gives me his real information. He did not have a warrant. He did go to jail for falsification though.
I was a Park Ranger and we used to have a bunch of kids who liked to sit on a hill and smoke weed. Now they walked in and out and were just goofy kids and basically behaved so I left them be until Travis came along. Travis had a joint in his hand as I walked up, he was told to toss it in the drain.
Travis takes a big ole hit and exhaled in my face. I still let it go but began to simmer, he pinches the cherry and trys to pocket the joint. That was it Travis gets clipped, dumbass had an ounce in his sock and several blunts in his pocket. Stupid.
An ex-roommate of mine decided to stop off in a town she wasn’t familiar with on her way home from work to smoke some pot with some friends she’d met recently. After staying just long enough to smoke a bunch, she drove down the road, not paying attention, and swerved right in front of a cop.
I’ve since visited this town, and it very much has a vibe of pulls you over “Hi, do you need directions?” I’d bet that’s what the cop was thinking when he pulled her over. She managed to escalate this to refusing to take a breathalyzer, to yelling at the cop for harassing her, to pinching the guy when he cuffed her.
I was on a lease with this person, and didn’t want to be responsible for her part of the rent, so I drove out and bailed her out after midnight on a weekday so that she could go to work the next day. Bail, of course, started off as $40, for a traffic violation, and escalated to several hundred when it turned out she had technically assaulted an officer.
And the next day she goes to work with a bad attitude, gets fired, and GOES BACK TO THE SAME TOWN, AND GETS PULLED OVER AGAIN.
Not a police officer but years ago a guy called the cops and asked how much trouble he would get in if he was caught growing marijuana. 2 hours later an officer shows up to his house and arrests him for growing marijuana…
While riding with a police officer on duty I saw a guy blow a red light. I told the officer, but he said he couldn’t give him a ticket since he didn’t see it happen. I mentioned that the guy had no tail lights as well – so he begrudgingly stopped the truck. When we walked up to the window the officer asked, “do you know why I stopped you?” to which the guy responded with “yea, cause I blew that red light.”
The officer looked at me and shook his head then asked, “why did you blow that red light?” “Because the brakes are bad in this truck and I couldn’t stop that fast.” The guy ended up having a warrant and had weed in his truck. The officer, who I rode with often, asked me to write out the tickets (he’d sign them) while he did the arrest paperwork. I wrote him for no tailights and for unsafe equipment (the brakes.)
The officer asked why I didn’t write him for running the red light – I said, “because you said you didn’t see it.” He was like, yea well, he admitted it – that’s enough for me. Moral of the story if you have a warrant or weed in your truck don’t drive around with bad breaks, no tailights and running stop lights.
I’m not a officer, but my uncle told me a story about his first arrest. So some guy is speeding and my uncle tails him and then pulls the lights on, he did have a tail light out aswell. The guy completely halts, and my uncle goes up to him. the guy just acts normal and my uncle tells him about his light and the speeding. The dude says ”I was speeding to get my light fixed.”
My uncle just brushes this off, and when leaving, the glove compartment just flies open and there is tons of drugs and a pistol in there. Turns out the dude was a pusher for a gang and he was speeding cause he was late to a deal, ESU got to the meet-up and arrested them all.
Had a neighbor drunkenly break into someone’s house, cops were called but not by the homeowner. Homeowner just wants him gone and cops comply telling drunk dude to just go home or they’ll take him home. No questions asked and no charges needed to be given.
Drunk guy turns out to be an angry drunk and takes out a knife from his pants and tries to attack the cops, falls flat on his face and is then cuffed by the cops.
Instead of going home drunk, he is taken to jail drunk.
Not an officer, but a guy I used to work with was a real dickhead, and amongst many other things, once left me stranded at a job site almost 2 hours from home with no way to get back. One night he got pulled over for speeding well over the limit. Cops were going to let him go with just a fine (no points) but he decides to argue and push the point.
So the cops search his vehicle and find cocaine. Gets arrested, car impounded. He makes bail and promptly leaves the country to go to his home country. Guy wasn’t a US citizen, and now can’t come back to the States ever again, or he’ll be rearrested and charged with the drug offenses, the speeding charge, and skipping bail.
Karma’s a bitch, doofus.
