Police With a Sense of Humor!

Officer Humor - Wyoming State Police - GOTTA LOVE 'EM!!!!!

In most of the northern states, there is a policy of checking on any stalled vehicle on the highway when the temperatures drop down to the single digits or below.

About 3 A.M. one very cold morning in March 2004, a state police officer responded to a call: there was a car off the shoulder of the road on the outskirts 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 speedometer was showing 20-30-40 and then 50 MPH, but is 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 patrolman yelled at the man ordering 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 per Hour.

Who says policeman don't have a sense of humor?

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour !!

Very funny! I have a weakness for policemen even if they lack a sense of humor.

By the way, thanks for putting this in your blog. I think I first read it the day you posted it but I had been having a bad day and although it cheered me up a bit, I was still too crabby to leave a comment that day.
