Default Interesting.....

So I got a ticket for speeding earlier this year by a city police officer near my house. No biggie. I was doing 16 over and after talkign with the cop, he dropped it to 11 over so it would just be a fine and no points/insurance reporting. He was kindof a car guy and we talked car stuff for a few minutes.

Well tonight, I was watching the local news and i overheard that two officers from the same police department were arrested on sererate occasions for DUI. Once they announced the names, i grabbed the ticket (yes, i still have it for some odd reason...and i knew where it was) and sure enough, the cop that gave me the ticket had been one of them. Dumbass was caught speeding 20 over, in his car, with his 3-year old in the car and carrying his city issued 9mm. Oh and to top it off, he's a "DUI Task Force" officer.

if you havnt paid, show up for court, and it a will automatically be dropped due to the officer not showing for his defense.

+1, in any case, bring the article with you and point out how lame the officer is. but it sounds like you already paid. still funny.
