"Sorry (not sorry), officer"
Cops have gotten a bad reputation recently. It’s fair, there’s been a lot of bad stuff going on in the national spotlight that has put the more nefarious actions of police front and center. That said, most cops are, in fact, regular people just out to do their job and make sure no one gets hurt. Sometimes, though, they’re out for a good laugh.
Here are some of the funniest stories cops had to tell from their time on the job!
Should have seen that coming
“The cop asked me if I knew why he had pulled me over. I said ‘speeding’? He said ‘no, you rolled through a stop sign back there. But now that you mention it, it did take me a while to catch up to you.’ The cop, my friend in the passenger seat, and myself started laughing as I had this o-s**t moment. He let me off with a warning. Nice guy.” (gatorb888)
The Rubber Chicken Streaker
“My aunt is a police officer. Her favourite story at parties is how she once arrested a nearly naked man who was running through a busy street. As she likes to put it; ‘the only thing he was wearing was a rubber chicken. He was wearing it through penetration!'” (MartijnCvB)
This is wild from start to finish
“When I was a teen (living in the Phoenix area) we would fill up the back of a pickup with shaved ice from behind the ice-rink and then build snowmen in people’s yards. We would do it at night before ringing and driving away.
One time, a neighbor called the cops after hearing a group of teens sneaking around outside. The cop came by and found out what we were doing. Instead of getting after us, he told us to follow him somewhere. We ended up making a snowman in his own front yard. He rang the doorbell and hid around the corner while his wife came to the door and then his kids came out.
There are some good cops out there. Not all of them are like the ones shooting people without cause.” (krkr8m)
