Kind of cool how it happened. You know how you see some crazy shit going on and you wonder to yourself, “Self, these guys are acting like total assgoblins, where’s a cop when you need one?”
Short story long.
I’m driving home yesterday, right through the heart of Milwaukee, at about 4pm.
I’m going south on one of the main thoroughfares, a three lane road in each direction if you include the parking lane. Sherman Blvd, if you know Milwaukee.
Anywho, as I’m heading south I see this car full of kids weaving across all three lanes of traffic. The front passenger is hanging completely out the window and waving his arms around and making (gang sign?) gestures to anyone who cares to notice. I cared to notice because they were driving VERY recklessly and weaving all over the place. Swerving from curb to curb, cutting people off, going through RED lights and basically driving like total fucking bozos.
I maneuver myself (safely) to get close enough to get the license plate and I’m about ready to call 911 and take video of these clowns. Then I see a big 'ol Lincoln Town Car go sailing past me and get right on their tail. They continued with the foolishness without regard to the car directly behind them.
They go through another red light and continue driving all crazy when the Town Car pulls up next to them and signals for them to pull over. They sort of pull over, because traffic was so thick here that they didn’t have much choice. They guy in the Town Car cuts them off and noses them over to the curb where they stopped. I pulled up directly behind them so they couldn’t back up.
Turns out the guy in the car was an off-duty Milwaukee Police Officer (Yes!). He flashes his badge and walks around to the passenger side of the vehicle and opens the door and yanks the passenger out. The officer signals to me to stay in the car. After another squad arrives I finally get out and the officer who made the stop asks me to move his car so it’s out of traffic, which I do. Then I watched these retards get booked. They had a case of Bud in the back seat and open and empty bottles in the truck. Go figure, alcohol was involved.
After all the commotion ended I chatted with the off-duty officer.
I noticed that he seemed a little nervous (I’m sure I was more nervous then him) so I asked him if he normally makes traffic stops. He said, “Not without my gun!” He wasn’t packing. Pretty ballsy move to make not knowing if the asscracks in the truck had weapons or not. Plus, the way they were driving I wouldn’t doubt they were on crack or meth.
The only thing that would make this cooler is if the Officer was our very own pkbites.
Anyone of you guys have an experience like this?
