    Right up there with the deadly toilet spider story on commercial passenger jets.

    Cops, (REAL cops) do not do that. Even if an off-duty officer does assist in a traffic stop, he always has identification and presents it before doing anything like that. I bet many of them would tell you that would be a sure fire way to get killed or injured if they ever did a traffic stop in that manner.

    I too call BS to the 10th power.

    Sound like somebody's friend has an over-active imagination.

    Like the cop in the unmarked car in MD that blocked the motorcycle driver in, exited the vehicle with GUN DRAWN, ran up to the driver, told him to get off the bike, THEN identified himself as a police officer?

    That isn't even close. The dude was going over 120 mph on the bike. It was a felony stop. I am pretty darn sure the kid on the bike knew that was a cop since he was driving like a maniac and had just passed a marked vehicle.There was a marked cruiser with LEO in uniform behind the bike at the stop. I am assuming the unmarked car did have lights and sirens. He did announce he was a LEO,too late IMO, but not soon after he got out of his vehicle. I am not saying that was an ideal stop. But it is not even close to this "story"

    I wasn't trying to say it was close to the story, I was just using it as an example of a police officer failing to identify himself in a timely manner.

    While I think the story is missing A LOT of important details, I'm not sure it is trolling.

    As far as following up on his first post. It is not even 8 hours later; he posted it in the middle of the night, so he could be sleeping.

    Really had me going there until I read it didn't happen to me, but to a friend. Yawnnnnnn. Second hand accounts always seem to sensationalize and leave out a few minor details

    How many cars have the ignition that close to the open window to allow someone to turn the key off? He'd have to be half way through the window to do it.

    And if the LEO is calling the perp on dragging the LEO 50 feet, well... The LEO has two witnesses and I go with the LEO and not the perp...

    Plus, two squad cars at the perps home tells me someone (LEO) called the plate in and lo and behold, the squad cars are there at the perps home waiting for him... Come on... this is pure...

    Any time someone speaks for someone else I feel like the courts do that if it's not from the victim's mouth it can't be held accountable

    This might be me, but

    If someone reaches into my pickup truck im grabbing his wrist and twisting it so his head comes to the front part of my door and slamming it open on him.Then I am calling the police to say someone just parked infront of my pickup and tried to assault me and I took him out with my door. Get out and hold him down if his family tries to step out I will tell them to stay in the car police have been called.
