Jerk cop story? Here's mine. What's yours?

I posted this story in another thread, but I thought it might make a good topic for ppl to share their stories.

A couple of months back, I was on my way home from seeing Cloverfield, which sucked by the way. I was getting on a state highway from the interstate that just sort of branches off. The speed limit on the interstate is 55, but of course everyone goes 65+ so I was too just following traffic, and the speed limit on the offramp, which is downhill, is 40, so obviously one has to hit their brakes pretty hard to slow down, which I think is just stupid, so I was just coasting along in 5th until I hit 45 or so.

Well this cop clocks me at 53 in this 40mph zone. Okay, my bad man. I didn't want to slam on my brakes to go the speed limit. Sue me. So dude knocks on my window and asks me where I was going. I'm like, I'm going home. This was Friday night at about 11:15. And yea, I was actually going home for the night b/c I had to get up early.

So long story short this cop ends up giving me a Field Sobriety Test b/c I told him I was playing cards earlier that evening and apparently that's a drinking activity. So I get out and do the whole stand on one leg thing, walk in a straight line thing, blow into this tube thing and he's like ok, get back in the car.

So I'm sitting there waiting, all the while thinking... this is fn ridiculous and I was pissed b/c I was probably going to get a speeding ticket. I mean even though I was being completely safe... I was speeding.. Anyway the dude knocks on my window with his bigass flashlight and says to me.... "Cody, you're going to jail." I'm like "Um... what?" And he says, "HAHA!! Na I'm just messin with you man. I just gave you a warning for speeding. You blew a 0.00"

I suppose it could have been a lot worse, but I just drove off thinking... man what a dick...

So let's hear your stories.

Haha. I wish I was important enough to get punked. It just makes me wonder if cops go around doing this kind of crap to everyone. I feel like he probably just pulled me over b/c of my car. There were several cars in front of me that were going even faster.

I probably would have laughed & been like "that's fucked up!!! "

Hmmm...

about a year ago I got pulled over for "impending traffic" on a dead suburban road at around 1am. the speed limit is 25 which I knew I wasn't quite doing (it was actually near where I had wrecked a few months earlier... and I'd been um... "hanging out" with some friends) but I saw the town cop and then I saw him pull out and follow me for about a mile... not even 50 feet before he was out of his jurisdiction he hit his lights. so I pulled over and he came up to the window and I rolled it down. The first thing he asked was how dark my windows were so I just played dumb & said my boyfriend had just gotten them tinted for me for an anniversary present & wasn't sure how dark they were. He bought it, but then he asked for license & registration so I showed it to him and while he looked at them I said "what did I get pulled over for" and he said "impending traffic, I clocked you doing 19 in a 25, which to me is suspicious and I have nothing better to do. mind if i ask where you're coming from and where you're going?" I said "I just left a friend's house and I'm going home." He asked me "well have you been drinking?" I said "no, we were just watching movies" He was like "It's a Saturday night and a pretty young girl like you isn't out in the club?" I was just like "no, I don't drink" Anyway, I realized that he was the cop who had pulled my boyfriend at the time over the night before for an (almost) dead inspection sticker... he had actually gone to high school with the cop's daughter so the cop was cool about it & told him not to forget to get his truck inspected before the end of the month. So I told the cop "Oh I think you pulled my boyfriend over last night" and he said "oh yeah, that's right I remember. Have a good evening miss."

Not really a jerk but what a lame excuse to pull someone over...

So in both of these cases neither of you were fined or ticketed, but you're complaining about these cops being jerks?

Re: Jerk cop story? Here's mine. What's yours?

I think it's a pretty jerk move to tell a guy he's going to jail after giving him a field sobriety test. I've had a few friends get their licenses taken away and in those 2 seconds between, "youre going to jail" and "haha, just kidding" I had about a million things go thru my head like WTF AM I GOING TO DO and MY PARENTS ARE GONNA KILL ME... shit like that..

If you've never had a field sobriety test, I highly suggest it. It's fucking liberating...!!

BTW, I left out that I did have 3 beers in a 3 hour span earlier while I was playing cards so I was a little on edge, however obviously not drunk at all and he knew that.

Anyway, if this happened to you, I'm pretty sure you'd be a little peeved, even if you did get off with a warning.

Re: Jerk cop story? Here's mine. What's yours?

First off, I liked Cloverfield. And that was petty shitty of the cop.

Anyways, I was coming back from Lubbock, TX to Dallas and was only about 45 minutes from home when I get pulled over. I was only about 5 over the limit so I was getting pissed that he was pulling me over. Anyways, he comes up to the window gets my info and goes back to check the computer. Comes back, tells me that he's a narcotics officer and that he wants to search my car. I've heard tons of stories about getting screwed if you don't agree to a search so I just went with it. I had nothing to hide. Then I got to thinking, I don't do anything, but I had friends that did and some sketchy people had been in my car. So as his backup pulls up and he gets his dog out to sniff my car I start getting worried about someone dropping something in my car or an ass cop planting something. They finally finished and found nothing. They made some jokes about how my car was probably in better shape than theirs (had a white Crown Vic) and then I got to go after they wasted 30 minutes of my time.

Moral of the story, do not put stickers on your car notating that you are a college student. Apparently it's a big flashing beacon for cops.
