Glen,
You should have told the cop that living in LA lead you to believe that waving to ANY one could get you shot or molested! It's safer here on the other side of the Gorman Curtain!

My sister got pulled over because a cop wanted to flirt with her. Turns out that cop is my neighbor. I see him all the time, but never talk to him.

I just arrived at a keg party when the keg ran dry. Since I was sober, they asked ME to drive to buy a new one. I got pulled over for running a yellow light. When the officer saw the keg in the back seat he made me walk the line and do all of the other tests. I passed. In frustration, he gave me a ticket for running a red light. I swear the light was yellow!

Got pulled over and issued a warning in Oklahama a few years ago for driving with my auxilary lamps on.

Apparently that's a fancy term for fog lamps.

I don't know if this qualifies as "silly," but it's the only time I've been pulled over.

Actually, my wife was driving. We were heading up Farewell St. (so named because it has cemetaries on both sides) and my wife said; "Woah, that cop just pulled out like 'Hill St. Blues'!" (Which dates this story.)

I looked up and then looked back as he passed us to see him do a 180 and come after us!

We pulled over and the policeman pulled up in front of us, got out of his car and drew his weapon! Meanwhile, two other cars appeared out of nowhere and blocked us off. The officer ordered us out of the car with our hands up.

I've got Richard Pryor's routine running through my head; "I'm coming out of the car, with my hands up, because I do NOT want to be a statistic!" My wife is laughing because she thinks the whole thing is somebody's idea of a joke!

I finally get her to get out and they search the car. Looking at our two children (probably 3 and 4) strapped in the back seat.

Finally they let us go, explaining that someone had called in a report that there'd been an altercation that ended with a gun being drawn and the people with the gun had been seen driving off in our direction in a black station wagon!

Here's the weird thing. We actually did have a gun in the car! My wife was working with a local theatre group and part of her duties was to fire off a blank starter's pistol. She'd noticed the blanks were running low and wanted to bring the pistol to the sporting goods store to make certain we got the right sized blanks! I always wondered if someone in the theatre thought that would be funny to get us in trouble with the police!

I never got pulled over for something I didn't do. I was always guilty. Never got a ticket though!

The oddest one was flying down hwy 50 from Tahoe to Stockton where I had to announce a Midget Race that friday night. And I mean flying! Suddenly a Chips pulls in behind me and is darn near drafting! We were at about 95-98 mph. I figuer if I slow it's too obvious or he's run up my butt. I was used to close near contact but always with drivers I trusted...this was spooky. Eventually after quite a ways, (we were the only cars on the road) he switched on the Christmas tree and we slowed and I pulled over. He walks up and says "Do you realize how fast you were going?" I said "Of course, I didn't want to wreck you in a rear ender." (always tell the truth.) He said "What's the hurry?"
I said "I have a race in Stockton at Delta Speedway." I had Skyliner Racing plastered all over the back of the Bronco. He says, "Is that a knife?" "I said yep" (it was a small skinner) "I use it to cut my Daughters Oranges. She eats a lot of Oranges." (always tell the truth) She was sleeping in the back seat. "Besides...that's a dangerous spot we're going to." By now I was beginning to sweat bullets (literally)...under the bag of Oranges next to my kid was the .357 (unloaded)...I did'nt really want to have to explain how truely dangerous those fairgrounds could be and there was no way I go 'unpacked' with the kid along.

He gave me the license and said...'You better slow down from here'. I said "OK I will..."by the way, do you 'Draft' all your suspects?" He says matter of factly. "No I don't." I said "It was fun though huh..." He said "Yep" and went back to the car.

It was then I learned these Chips are 'car guys' and speed freaks and the Cycle Cops uniformed Bikers. I did find it odd that he must have taken that Skyliner Racing as meaning I knew what I was doing...not a good assumption in general. Smile

I watched a cop on a horse give a person a ticket for not picking up after their dog had just went #2 on the sidewalk. While the cop was writing the ticket, his horse unloaded (a huge one) right there on the street. The cop handed the person the ticket and rode off like it was nobodys business! Amazing!

My wife was attractive and very buxom, and she was always getting pulled over for speeding. Thing is, (a) she was always guilty, and (b) she NEVER got a ticket. The first thing she always did when she was pulled over was to unbutton the top couple of buttons on her blouse, then she flirted shamelessly. It always worked. Even with the one FEMALE cop who pulled her over - she even gave my wife her number! Smile

I got pulled over for 72 in a 55 and when the cop got to my truck I had all the proper documents in hand and I said "Ya got me dead to rights sir"! He couldn't believe I was so forth coming and polite so he wrote me up for 62 instead which saved me a bunch! Sometimes it pays to play their game!

Always tell the truth. It has worked every time for me. How many times? More than a few.

Of course I never drank and drove either...which is the one case where the truth will not set you free. (Nor should it.)

Got pulled over for looking too young to drive... but that was a long time ago, kinda why I grew the beard as soon as I could, always had a baby face.

I got pulled over one time just because the cop wanted to say hello to me.

The cop was my cousin and he just happened to see me driving so he pulled me over. Smile

When I lived in San Diego I noticed that the cops would pull you over for any little reason. But perhaps the one that really surprised and outraged me was when an AMBULANCE pulled me over for not signaling before making a lane change! I got a ticket and a point on my license.


Well I'm pretty sure changing lanes without signaling is considered an illegal lane change which at least in Massachusetts, constitutes a point.

One night I was pulled over 3 times in 10 minutes for a breathalyzer test. Nothing wrong with my driving, just poor route planning during a weekend of echanced DUI surveillance (meaning they pull over everyone driving past their point). In case someone is wondering, in Finland breathalyzer is the only test they use-no walking on line or such.

I was also pulled over when my good friend (cop) owed me a twenty and saw me driving home and decided to pay his debt AND scare the crap outta me.

Slightly of topic (but within context! LOL), my sister got pulled over because there was a dead pheasant hanging on the front of her truck. She had hit the poor bird and it got stuck on the bit loose wire of the truck's front winch. No ticket, but the cops were laughing their butts off.

I remember that from the Burt Reynolds movie, "Cannonball Run." The two girls keep getting out of tickets by flashing cleavage at the cops.

I remember a friend of mine claimed he'd driven home drunk. Doing about 15 mph on the highway. The cop asked why he was driving so slowly and my friend responded; "Because I'm too drunk to drive quickly!" The cop was so impressed, he escourted him home and didn't give him a ticket!

Got pulled over one other time when the car was acting up (turned out the alternator had gone and we didn't realize the car was actually running on the battery. By the time we got back to Newport, we could barely see because the lights were so dim and we were weaving. The cops realized we weren't drinking and didn't ticket us, but wouldn't let us continue. We had to call a tow truck to take the car home. Had a friend who helped us figure out what was wrong with the car and got a new alternator... you betcha.
