Should be illegal to be this dumb

“Should be illegal to be this dumb”

Just received a great submission from a police officer  out of Arkansas.  First of all I want to thank him for the submission and secondly thank him for his service.  On that not he was kind enough to take time out of his day to  share a great story with me and I want to share it with the Reynolds Wrapping Viewers.

I was on the way to the county jail doing my normal routine.  I noticed a vehicle in front of me almost side swipe a car.  Being a police officer I kind of have to take notice of these infractions.  So, I continued to follow the vehicle that was driving erratically.  I don’t think she realized she was in the good ol USA, because she utilized both sides of the road.  Mainly the left.  In my mind I though hey I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt and assume  that she just maybe had moved over from Japan, Europe, or any other country that drives on the opposite side as we do.  I contacted dispatch and advised the situation and location of the infraction.  Waiting for another unit to arrive and assist me, I kept her in my line of sites.  I would have pulled her over right then, but I already had a perpetrator in the back of the squad car.  (Thing about being a cop is that no matter how bad the economy is, my jobs secure.) 

As I continue to follow her I take notice that she’s going right towards the jail and eventually pulls into the P.D. parking lot.  Which actually is going to make my job a hell of a lot easier. I step out of my squad car, secure the perpetrator in the back, and ask to see her drivers license.  She hands me her license and tells me she’s there to see a friend.  I thought in my mind, “Oh you’ll be seeing her real soon alright.” I took notice that she was wound up like Richard Simmons sweating to the oldies.  Little problem here in the Midwest we like to call Meth.(It's a drug like speed made from everything under the kitchen sink.) 

 I walked nicely over to her and informed her that I would personally be taking her directly to see her friend.  I asked her kindly to slip on these high-fashioned silver bracelets and Ill lead the way.  The happy ending to this story is that she got to see her friend.  Probably a little closer and longer than to her liking though. This is one for the record books.  Another criminal we can add to the list of Americas Dumbest Criminals.

Thanks again Wes for your service and your submission.  I’m sure well be seeing a lot more submissions from this patriot.  There's never a shortage of dumb criminals. Wes Is one of the best officers out there.  So I’m sure he'll be arresting a ton of them!
