I have a retired FHP officer who tells the story of stopping a good looking, large chested blonde who was speeding. (This occurred in the 1970's) While writing the ticket the blond kept rubbing her chest on his arm. He said he was writing real sloooowwww. The blonde says "I'll do anything to avoid a ticket". My friend said "Maam, I started the ticket and can't cancel it. but if you keep doing that I'll pay half the ticket".

I was probably 17 at the time, lumbering up a hill at 10 or 11 at night coming home from a friend's house. Had to get up to speed on the downhill side to make it up the hill on the other side and I got pulled over for doing probably 45 or so in a 35. I was so nervous I had no idea what to do it was the first time I had ever been pulled over. Officer comes over to the vehicle and I had been with my father a few times so I had watched him be polite and I tried to mimick that. I offered the correct documents and he asked "And I'd like to know why you're not wearing your seatbelt this evening" I gestured to the lap belt that was secured and I told him "Its a 79 sir, it didn't come with many options" and he just sort of mumbled something, told me to drive more carefully and sent me on my way. Really getting the itch to be driving it again though and I'm sure I'll get into more trouble once I do since that is just the way things work!

OK, Everyone that keeps saying "ONLY CJ's".........

This thread has been really entertaining to me and many others, and although I am not the OP, I don't think JH would mind reading more entertaining posts, even if not a CJ.. He may feel free to correct me on this..

I had to drive into San Francisco for work one day in a new car. It still had the dealer plates on it as the license plates had yet to arrive. Parking in SF is a pain in the behind during the day. Anyway I got a ticket for not having a license plate!

So I wrote to the city of SF and said hey guys, the car is new, I don't have plates yet, what gives?

They sent back a letter saying they had reviewed it and that I needed legal plates and that I owed them a few hundred bucks.

My dad's an attorney so I let him handle the rest. He sent a letter stating what had happened, that the plates had yet to be issued by the State, and he requested to know who had reviewed my case, what procedures they had used, which vehicle code they were citing and about 10 other questions.

Within a week I had a letter stating that the officer had made a mistake and that my ticket was canceled.

You southeast guys will relate to this one.

First you spin your tires. Then you get pulled over. But you pull into a convenience store lot to get off the busy street.

The cop walks up to the car and asks what do you think this is, a racetrack?

All you can do is look up at the convenience store's sign. And back at the cop. And back at the sign. And so on.

And then he realizes, yes, this is a Racetrac. A Racetrac convenience store. And the break in his anger buys you a break on the ticket. Written warning. Yesssss........

Foundrydude,

Yikes!!

I'm glad all turned out well. An unplanned 360 in a Jeep is no fun at all...been there, done that, don't want to again.

I have two interesting stories about being pulled over in my Jeep-

1) I had a cop pull me over probably because he assumed I was drunk (it was 2 AM at the beach so I dont really blame him). Realizing I was sober he began to question where my doors were. I played dumb and respoded along the lines of "Oh I guess that makes sense because the mirrors are on the door, wow how dumb of me". He them goes on for ten minutes explaining how I dont need doors, or mirrors, but the real reason is because I need interior door handles. I have no idea where to even begin understanding that. He gave me a warning so I cant complain.

2) Years ago when I was slightly less intelligent I was doing some illegal wheeling (I realize now its wrong and haven't done it since) in a popular spot around my area. Myself, three people in my Jeep, and a filled up Cherokee spend somewhere along the lines of 4 hours back in the woods of this place riding over anything we could find. Most of the people were also doing their best to finish off a bottle of Jack Daniels, thankfully I choose not to drink. We finally get bored, and run out of liquor, so decide to leave and drive out of the woods to where you can hop back on the roads. Just then I notice they are in the process of doing some construction and there is essentially a muddy oval track that I absolutely needed to play in. After I absolutely cover my jeep in mud I return to the end of the court to meet the Cherokee and just then we see red and blue lights. I proceed to do the obligatory facepalm and wait to be bent over by the police. Cops pull everyone out of both cars, run every single license, tell everyone other than the two drivers they smell like a brewery... I then watch one of my friends nearly vomit on one of the cops. The cop then grabs me and walks me closer to a "No Trespassing" sign, flashes it with the light and asks if I can see it. "We'll officer I can see that sign". I then ask to grab his flashlight, he gives it to me. Pointing at each sign i say "Officer I saw that sign, that sign, that sign, that sign, and that sign". I then point to the construction area and say "but theres no sign over there". He gives me a pretty funny look, takes his light back, walks over to where I pointed and looks for a sign for about 2 minutes. He comes back, says "I guess your right", writes me a warning and tells me to wash my Jeep.

EDIT: Forgot to mention this was all in my CJ

Last summer some friends and I were driving from Sierra Vista to Tombstone. We got stopped by the border patrol at a checkpoint. I am one of the whitest boys from Southern PA. I lowered all the windows of the car and presented the hispanic female agent with our military ID cards, figuring it would be a quick and painless experience...I was wrong. This was our exchange:

Border Patrol Agent: "Sir, are you from this country?"
Me: "You're joking, right?"
Border Patrol Agent: "No, Sir, I'm not. Are you here legally?"
Me: "Of course I am, I'm a Sergeant First Class and have been in the US Army for 19 years!"
Border Patrol Agent: "That means nothing, Sir. You could still be illegal and be in the military."
Me: "Well I can assure you that I'm originally from PA."
Border Patrol Agent: "I don't know what that is, Sir."

Now, maybe I'm just ASSuming, but I always thought that everyone knew what and where PA was.

Me: "Are you kidding me???? Are you really serious or are you just proof that we're hiring any imbecile to stand here now? Let me ask you, are YOU here legally?"

By this time, her supervisor came out, because I was irate and raised my voice....yeah, I know, asking her if she was here legally was a peckerhead thing to say, but my tolerance for stupidity is pretty low. I'm on Lexapro now and much better.

The Border Patrol supervisor told her to give us our military ID's back and he apologized. I never did see her again at that checkpoint.

You just became my new hereo! I know it's a little strange for a Marine SSgt to have an Army SFC as a hero, but in this instance, I think we can make an exception!

I met one of my best friends, when I went we went into Kosovo together, right as the air war was ending...I was in 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne) and he was in the 24th MEU. We've been brothers ever since.

You guys still have the discipline I wish my service had, when I joined 20 years ago.

From one NCO to another, I appreciate the comment.

This was the best thing I've ever read said about the Corps:

"The Marines I have seen around the world
have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds,
the highest morale and the lowest morals
of any group of animals I have ever seen.
Thank God for the United States Marine Corps.”
-Eleanor Roosevelt

my Only one is campus police pull me over one night about 1 in the morning. Comes up to the window and says hes pulling me over because my tag lights are out, (this was with factory lights before litedots). then continues to ask for my registration and insurance and license. As i gather it i as in a remark, sir is my rear left tail light working? He says yes calmly not thinking anythign of it, so I say well I am quite certain my left tailight lights up my tag so if you say that is working I can not see how my tag could not be illuminated, he walks back looks at it for a few seconds, comes back and says be on your way and get home and gets in his car and takes off..

I guess they just figure its an easy way to get kids drinking and driving on campus, who knows.
