Not jail but pretty close...

Not my proudest moment:
Grade 11, buddy's house party, 6 of us decide it would be fun to play "war" with pellet/BB guns so we start running around town shooting each other. Police see unknown individuals running around the streets with rifles and apparently deemed us as dangerous criminals and start chasing us down. I hid between the pharmacy and another building and was promptly caught, thrown down to the ground face first and the officer had his handgun pointed at the back of my head.
I didn't get thrown in jail but I did get taken home in the back of the squad car, was escorted to the front door of my home and had to get my parents up so the officer could release me to thier custody. Not a great feeling to be standing in the doorway of your own house plastered out of your mind, bleeding from the hand (took two BB's in the knuckle earlier on in the evening), and under the influence of dr*gs at 3:30 in the morning with one of your Mom's best friends husbands standing there in uniform.

I actually may have preferred jail...

Screwed by cops!

Just got a speeding ticket at 10PM tonight...cop said I was doing 80 MPH in a 55 MPH zone...problem is 'COP WAS WRONG'....I had cruise control set to 59 MPH...both sons in car saw were aware of the cruise setting...if the cop wanted to give me a ticket for 4 miles over the limit, then fine....but to say I was doing 80 MPH is wrong...I'll fight this in court...maybe get a lawyer...but this is just another example of "out of control cops"...the citizens need to date back their county!....this was truly a bad example of cop abuse in front of my children...."fear the police"...they are not your friends!

Did he use radar to monitor your speed? If not, it will be tossed and your time will be wasted, but that's about all. Call the ADA or the police department and ask if this ticket indicates how the officer "knows" you were speeding.

Ok is 1998 I just got married and recently back from my honeymoon in costa rica. I get pulled over by Officer Martinez (forsyth county GA)for an expired tag as I forgot to register on my birthday in April it's now June. He informs me I'm under arrest for failure to appear. However, I have my dog and a mountain bike on top of my car after a great ride on some new trails.

He starts to cuff me like I'm public enemy number one, when I inform the dumb**** that it's June and I have a dog. I plead with him to let me call my new wife to come get me car. Thank God I have a cell phone as I'd only had it for a year. He reluctantly agrees but still puts me in the back of his car after allowing me to crack the windows on my car for my dog. He stuffs me in the back where I start sweating like a pig cause it's hot and the plexiglass doesn't let ANY AC in.

My wife and a buddy show up to get my car and they get to see me thru the glass sweat rolling down my face. My new wife looking like she may need to get an annulment. Awesome day.

Turns out it was a mistake I had paid a speeding ticket 2 years earlier and they had it in the system wrong. Forsyth county graciously waives the fine for the expired tag but offer little more than an apology.
