Default Had a run in with the law tonight....

After doing some shopping at The Walmart I decide I’d stop and get me an ice cream from Dairy Queen, I was headed east on FM 78 in cibilo there was a cibilo pd about 1000’ in front of me and he pulled off and parked. I rolled past him probably 5 under the speed limit I was in no hury, I was enjoying my dipped cone when all a sudden head light rapidly apear behind me followed by red and blues.

I immediately pull over in a safe location,roll down my windows, shut off my truck, carefully set down my dipped cone, get my licenses out and put my hands on the steering wheel. Now this is where the story gets a little crazy,He approaches the driver side window and begins to talk to me RESPECTFULLY?? So I return the RESPECT by awnswering all question yes sir no sir, I give him all the info that he ask for. I was expecting at any second for him to pull his gun out and start shooting or at least pepper spray me, but it never happened instead he wrote me a warning for a faulty license plate light and also reminded me my insurance card is soon to expire.

He thanked me for being so cooperative and I told him to have a safe night and be careful. It’s a crazy world out there.

Same thing happened to me about a month ago in Buckholts on a Fri night heading to the ranch.. Nice as he could be. Told him to be careful & Thanked him for his service to the community. He said please try to get it fixed soon. Told him it would be by the time I came through on Sun evening. Amazing ain't it that neither of us got shot or tazed.

Sounds like every encounter I’ve ever had. Even the time I got pulled over on a college campus with a shotgun in my back seat. We exchanged pheasant hunting stories, I think he forgot why he pulled me over (going 10+ over) and let me go without so much as a warning.

Amazing what happens when you treat folks with respect

I’m not sure if your being facetious or not... but yeah I guess most cops are “diks” they are the ones everyone hates for telling them that they have done something wrong when as an adult you should know right from wrong.... Cops are “diks” until you need them right? Oh but wait then they are still “diks” because they didn’t respond fast enough to your emergency because there is no way they could have been dealing with someone else’s emergency.... yeah cops are “diks”......

I always thought that was a weird law.
License plate light.. the only time it would be needed would be when it was dark enough that it couldnt be read without a light source...and in order to read it a vehicle behind it would have to be close enough..that its headlights would be on it anyway...

btw, Never put down the cone. That a sign of weakness.

That's amazing. I had the same experience yesterday. Except I rolled through a stop sign and he chuckled as he handed me my warning and told me even though nobody was around, to still stop at the stop sign. Cop couldn't have been any nicer and as you did I believe I did everything right to make him feel at ease.

This right here. Tazed, pepper sprayed, then cavity searched.

I get why he didn't do anything even though you deserved it. If he would have tazed a man eating a dip cone, the LBGTQ community would be rioting in the streets about police discrimination.

Had a similar situation happen to me just outside Newton on Hwy 87 a few years ago. State trooper pulled me over for going about 10mph over the limit. When I pulled over I rolled all 4 windows down on my truck and kept my hands high on the steering wheel as he approached. He saw my TBH sticker on my back glass and turns out he was a TBH member too. We started talking about hunting, bows, leases etc. Very professional and I was very respectful and courteous. We talked for about 20 minutes and he sent me on my way with just a warning.

Since we're asking sharing.

Last year I was in Canton, TX.
Turning right on to 19 off of 64.
I was having a bad bad day, had some gospel music want so very badly to hear from HIM.
I slow rolled the stop sign and the State Trooper, whom I didn't see behind me, pulled me over. I was like AHHHHHH!!!
By the time he gets to the car I've got license, and proof of insurance in my hand. He asks if I knew why he's stopping me. I said running a stop sign.
He replied that and no license plate light. I was like ok sure why not.
I s feeling like what else could go wrong.
He asks if everything is ok. I tell him I'm just having a bad day sorry for taking it out on you sir.
He come back with a warning ticket for the light. Asks me to come to a complete stop from now on.
I apologized for us having to meet like that.

Exactly. Clearly the OP handled it wrong. Must not have many interactions with cops. I have tried to tell yall before, the right way to do it is just as he is walking up, start moving all around in your vehicle all erratic, while saying repeatedly "I dindu nuffin" "I dindu nuffin" "I dindu nuffin". Every time you say it, get just a bit louder. Just as he clears the door and can see you fully, very aggressively reach for your wallet ( all the while yelling "I dindu nuffin" )

They are trained to know you arent lying if you say it loud enough and are aggressive enough in your actions and demeanor.

She said, "Because my balloons are blocking my view?". I said, "No. Just wanted to tell you happy birthday from the Harris County Sheriff's Office". I thought she was gonna cry she was so relieved.
