    He's after me Lucky Charms

    http://www.dispatch.com/news-story.php?story=253404

    ORLANDO, Fla. There was no pot of gold behind the dancing roadside leprechaun, only speeding tickets.

    Dozens of drivers in the Orlando area found out the hard way yesterday after passing an Orange County sheriff's deputy dressed as a leprechaun and warning drivers to slow down. A laser detector clocked cars above his sign reading "Watch your speed or it will cost you your pot of gold," and several officers on motorcycles chased those who didn't heed the advice.

    Deputy Richard Lockman said police had been giving out about a ticket a minute since 8 a.m. He was dressed in a green leprechaun outfit with a hat, tight white knickers and a fake red beard.

    Lockman did the same thing with a Christmas elf outfit in December. Speeders complained that being stopped by a deputy in costume was entrapment.

    "I think that's just ridiculous," Lockman said. "The elf didn't force anybody to speed."
    If you click on the link there is a picture of the Leprechaun deputy. At least it seems he is a good sport about it. I think if I had to stand in the Florida sun in a Leprechaun outfit I'd be none to happy. Too bad they don't have him grabbing DUI's too, that would probably make for some hilarious dash cam footage.

    It may be odd that a Deputy Leprechaun would pull you over in Florida. It's quite common in NYS.

    Happy St.Pat day everyone!! Drink one for me, cause I gota work .

    I love it!! If you're dumb enough to speed right after being warned, you deserve everything you get (and they take)!

    Happy St. Paddy's Day to you all!!
