MPD Officer Cited for Getting Squad Car Stuck on Utility Pole

A Warning to Deputy Sheriff Ay***e!
This could happen to you!

(But only after they run electricity out to the barren wasteland that is Sodus, NY, ‘cuz you’re gonna need a utility pole…)

You might wanna think twice before you turn off your headlights, forget your hat, tie, and name badge, and refuse to identify yourself when you stop a short old lady for not wearing her seat belt and then, when confronted with a lawful NY VTL 1229c-7 exemption, running her license and registration twice and, after it returned squeaky clean (twice) attempting to issue her a ticket for:

  1. Speeding (while making a left-hand turn from a stopped position in the middle of the road)
  2. “Almost running into that car!” (notwithstanding that, being in said stopped position in the middle of the road and “that car” having run a red light, it was actually in danger of running into me)
  3. “Violating the white line” on the side of the road (while making a left-hand turn from a stopped position in the middle of the road)

and when all that didn’t work, demanding to know

  1. “Where have you been at 7:00 in the morning?” (“at the bank machine making a withdrawal,” “how much did you take out?” “$120.00.”  “show me,” upon presentation of which bills he then counted in front of me to make sure I wasn’t lying…)
  2. “Have you been drinking???”  (uh, yeah, but I don’t think Diet Coke counts, you do?”)

Unfortunately, this is what can happen when egotistical cops over-enforce the seat belt law:

I swear I had nothing to do with this, nothing at all! But I’m soooooooooooooo laughing:

How many dumb-ass cops does it take to rescue another dumb-ass cop from his own stupidity...

Question:  How many dumb-ass cops does it take to rescue another dumb-ass cop from his own stupidity…Answer:  As many as you can cram into 4 squad cars and an unmarked cruiser…WITH their ticket books, of course! (Courtesy News 4 NBC in Memphis, TN and Google Images)

MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) – A Memphis police officer was issued two citations after he lost control of his squad car and got stuck on a utility pole Monday night.

The accident occurred at Whitehaven Lane and Elvis Presley Blvd just after 7:30 p.m. on Monday, April 30.

According to the officer involved, 28-year-old Jonathan Bond, he was headed southbound on Elvis Presley when he saw a driver pass him not wearing a seat belt. Bond said he tried to turn around to pull the vehicle over, but lost control and hit the curb and guide wire on a utility pole, which caused his squad car to run up the pole and come to a rest vertically. Nobody was injured.

Officer Bond was issued a citation for failure to maintain proper control of his vehicle, and for hitting the utility pole.

Here’s the entire article, complete with video…I’m guessing Shelby County is Tennesee’s equivalent of Wayne County…y’think?

But you gotta luv the Memphis police who, when finding themselves with a handful of lemons, learn very quickly how to make lemonade (this according to wreg.com, Memphis, TN):

While some of you are asking how something like it could happen, others were asking why police spent time writing tickets to passersby who stopped to take photos.

Police would only tell News Channel 3 officers write tickets when drivers slow traffic…

(huh, like 4 squad cars and an unmarked chaser parked around a cruiser up-ended on a light pole aren’t going to cause a little “slow traffic” themselves…)

Seat Belt Police, Wayne County Style

Maybe someday both Officer Bond and Deputy Ay***e can join this, the Wayne County Task Force on Seat Belt and Litter Law Enforcement (Courtesy Pierre Nasman, Deputy Sheriff Br***s, and Google Images)  Direct all applications to Lead Enforcer, Wayne County Deputy Sheriff St****n Br***s.  Be sure your resume includes all the details of your many heroic attempts to “protect and serve” the law-abiding citizenry from the horrors of short people driving through their neighborhoods and how you follow up by harassing old ladies by “investigating” bogus “littering” complaints that are alleged, whoda thunk it, on the same day a certain court official was contacted by the State regarding a pending complaint…
