Speeder Fanagles Way Out Of Ticket: A Parable Of Our Time
A police officer pulled a man over for speeding and had the following
Officer: May I see your driver's license?
Driver: I don't
have one. I had it suspended when I got my fifth DUI.
Officer: May I see
the owner's card for this vehicle?
Driver: It's not my car. I stole it.
The car is stolen?
Driver: That's right. But, come to think of it, I believe
I saw the owner's card in the glove box when I was putting my gun in there.
There's a gun in the glove box?
Driver: Yes, sir. That's where I put it
after I shot and killed the woman who owns this car and stuffed her in the trunk.
There's a BODY in the TRUNK?!?!?
Driver: Yes, sir.
Hearing this, the
officer immediately called his captain. The car was quickly surrounded by police,
and the captain approached the driver:
Captain: Sir, can I see your license?
Sure. Here it is.
It was valid.
Captain: Who's car is this?
It's mine, officer. Here's the registration.
Captain: Could you slowly open
your glove box so I can see if there's a gun in it?
Driver: Yes, sir, but
there's no gun in it.
Sure enough, there was nothing in the glove
Captain: Would you mind opening your trunk? I was told there's a body
Driver: No problem.
The trunk was opened; no body.
I don't understand it. The officer who stopped you said you told him you didn't
have a license, stole the car, had a gun in the glovebox, and that there was a
dead body in the trunk.
Driver: Yeah, I'll bet he told you I was speeding,
