Yah, weekend warrior cops get a ticket book in their pocket for one day a year, you better believe they'll figure out a way to use it or even better get the opportunity to slap the cuffs on anyone in their way so they can brag about it on Monday.

Had this happen to me once in bumper to bumper traffic once. On a three lane bridge the guy in the truck behind me is honking constantly and flipping me off. Buddy, what the fark do you expect me to do? There's nowhere to go.

I just smiled and waved at him, which had the desired effect of infuriating him even further.

I was giving the guy a pass on the "fark you! You can't arrest me!" Bit (I assumed he thought he was just security) until TFA said he referred to him as a cop. You never win against a cop so WTF?
 
2013-08-26 05:30:31 PM
When the officer first told him he was under arrest.. what was it for?

I have a problem with this, not because the asshole got his just deserts, but because the cop was over stepping himself.

Personally, I'd handle it differently, but then, I'm not a redneck with a self entitlement problem.  And I can afford an attorney.

There's a big difference between putting someone in a cell at the station overnight for disorderly conduct or DUI and putting people into state prison for 5+ years for a non-violent offense like marijuana possession.

Someone would usually start honking at the car in front of them when students were crossing at the crosswalk at my college. It wasn't at a stoplight, but it had a flashing yellow light and a sign saying students had the right of way. I don't know what they expected to happen. "Oh, the guy behind me is mad? Guess I better just run over this pedestrian, then!"

Eventually was Miller handcuffed and arrested. Miller, of the 800 block of Second Street, is charged with reckless endangerment, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. He was arraigned by District Judge David Howells Jr. and was released today on $10,000 bail.

LOL. When keepin' it real goes wrong.

Also: "This is why people hate cops," from the asshole honking at people whose cars can't move because they're stuck in traffic.

Jesus, I hope on his way home from jail he stopped at the store and got the supply of diapers he clearly needs, since he's a gigantic farking baby.

Also, why the fark don't people know that when you tell a cop, "You can't arrest me," you're basically saying, "Please prove me wrong by arresting me immediately for as many things as you can fit on the citation."

And that's also the part of the story when most people's sympathy goes immediately from citizen to cop.

If the cop suspected DUI, he should have told the guy to pull off so he could investigate.

Honking is free speech.
Saying "fark you" to a cop is free speech.

The guy broke the law for the first time when instant he moved his car when the cop said he was under arrest. And to make matters worse the cop was relatively near the car. Cops "get injured" every time that happens.

I know I'm coming across as a cop hater, but I'm not. It's episodes like this one that fuels the people that are, though.

Perhaps I was being presumptuous. My anecdotal comment was based on my experience with airshows, security, and traffic after. Sure he should have quit laying on the horn and been more "civil". My experience was probably just as frustrating as a MP trying to maintain the actual security of the airfield while these guys want to stop someone for a crack in their windshield for a ticket instead of get hundreds of cars on the road and on the way home safely.

This was not the funniest one I read to day in the Lehigh Valley.  A rat/informant ripped off the cops drug buy money, bought junk and told the police the dealer didn't want to sell because of the police traffic in the area.  The judge released him on ROR.

I would argue that honking isn't actually free speech, because since honking is INTENDED to warn other cars of an imminent accident, it's more like shouting "Fire!" in a crowded theater.

2013-08-26 06:14:41 PM
Wait, did they really do this at ABE? shiat, they really shut down an international, albeit minor, airport with serious carriers for an airshow. Although there probably aren't too many airports in that area, what with a few centuries head start on buildup and the texture of the land. I'm in Dallas, I can think of 7 airports with 6000 foot or longer runways in the area, and a mess of 12,000 foot runways.

And the comment about cops making traffic worse, probably true. One of the primary problems with crowds of vehicles is that everyone wants to go their specific direction and forget the most important thing: getting away from the event. Lots of people trying to change lanes or make left turns, traffic would go smoother if everyone focused first on getting away. Then navigate to where you want to be. Of course, that takes actual knowledge of roads.

I agree. This guy was obviously a jerk. But you can't arrest someone because they are being a jerk. My brother was a cop, a good one, mostly because he never took it personal and was not role crazy. He changed professions because he was sick of role crazy cops. As a teacher
I find it interesting. Usually a bad teacher will take it personal when a kid is being difficult or defiant. Then it's a power struggle. It should never be an ego thing. A lot of cops just can't handle the ego thing. Therefor they should not be cops. They need a better psychological screening process to weed out the people that should not have that power.

Headso: Next thread about US incarceration rates


He's free on $10k bail - so they didn't lock him up without bail for 'assault on a police officer' or some over blown BS. Made him put up enough money to show up to court and sent him home to be an asshole somewhere else. Sounds about right. He'll do his few months of community service, pay up court costs and promise to be less of an asshole for a while. No jail time needed.

In most jurisdictions honking your horn when there isn't an emergency or immediate need to get another driver's attention is cause for a citation.  The cop told the guy to knock it off, essentially giving him a warning.  The guy didn't take it.

The only thing the cop may have done wrong here is skipping to arrest instead of saying "turn off your vehicle and show me your license and registration" so the cop could write the ticket for excessive honking.  When the dbag refused to do that, and I think it's likely he would have refused, then the rest of what the cop did would have been fully justified.

Failure to obey the order to stop disturbing the peace with the horn.  Shortened to "Failure to obey"
disorderly conduct

I had that happen to me too. It was a woman in an escalade. She was trying to get ahead of everyone and had a yappy little dog on her lap. All of uswaved at her and smiled. Set her off too. We just laughed. Later when she was trying to be queen of the highway she almost hit a 18 wheeler hauling pipes.

I was in San Francisco last week and stopped by Lombard Street to watch the tourists drive down that twisty little block. One asshole in particular was honking at the guy in front of him the whole way down. What did he want the guy to do, go faster? It's a bumper-to-bumper crawl.

I believe it was sponsored by the new Sands Casino if that answers any of your questions. That area is terrible for traffic as well. There are smaller airports in the area that probably could have accommodated this event better than ABE/LVIA.  Sands money?  I believe they pushed to get two nightclubs closed because it was their competition already.

Wow. I hope that woman eats wheat gluten for years and nothing bad happens, only to later find out that she doesn't have an allergy (because she doesn't) and has been an uptight Baitach for all those years.

jeffowl: Kahabut: When the officer first told him he was under arrest.. what was it for?

I have a problem with this, not because the asshole got his just deserts, but because the cop was over stepping himself.

Personally, I'd handle it differently, but then, I'm not a redneck with a self entitlement problem.  And I can afford an attorney.

In most jurisdictions honking your horn when there isn't an emergency or immediate need to get another driver's attention is cause for a citation.  The cop told the guy to knock it off, essentially giving him a warning.  The guy didn't take it.

The only thing the cop may have done wrong here is skipping to arrest instead of saying "turn off your vehicle and show me your license and registration" so the cop could write the ticket for excessive honking.  When the dbag refused to do that, and I think it's likely he would have refused, then the rest of what the cop did would have been fully justified.


Actually, the order to stop honking is not a traffic warning, it's a lawful order.  Failure to obey that order is a criminal offense, not a traffic offense.

If you walk up to a cop, and repeatedly tell him to fark off, he will arrest you.


I have no doubt of that.  But on what charge?

First, I have a rule.  Do what the cop says, because he has a gun and might use it to make you.

Second, Sue the ever loving shiat out of him, the department, and the mayor (important, include at least one elected person)

Honking is free speech.

Reading Das Kapital/Atlas Shrugged through a bullhorn at 3 AM is also free speech, but as it happens, it turns out that "You're not allowed to be a completely self-centered a-hole even when exercising your rights" has been codified in case law.

Would have been, in your entirely fictional series of events.  Given that those events did not take place, they are not relevant to the story at hand.

Is it perfectly reasonable to assume as you did?  Sure.  Is it reasonable for a cop to do the same?  NOPE.  In fact, it's a violation of the law, and the constitution.

Failure to obey the order to stop disturbing the peace with the horn.  Shortened to "Failure to obey"
disorderly conduct
asshat in public

The third one makes enforcement of the 1st two obligatory.


Except he wasn't charged with any of those things.

And my question was specific, on what charge was he arrested for in the FIRST place.
 
2013-08-26 06:52:28 PM
If the cop tells you to lay off the horn LAY OFF THE HORN.

Yes honking is free speech -- but laying on the horn when traffic cant move is kinda disturbing the peace isnt it? Like i believe in free speech but that doesnt mean i can go scream AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH in peoples faces as they walk down the street.

Know and stick up for your rights -- but if a cop politely asks you to knock it the fark off then its time to knock it off. Partys over. Move on.

Swearing is not illegal to do, but, from what is described the article the law draws the line at interfering with a police officer in the course of their job or if the verbal assault was threatening.

Not everything a cop tells you to do is a lawful order. "Lawful order" generally has a pretty narrow scope in most jurisdictions. Much more narrow than most cops think it is.

I just smiled and waved at him, which had the desired effect of infuriating him even further.


I prefer to blow kisses in addition to the smiling and waving.  Yes, I'm irritated but watching some jackhole in the car behind me completely lose his shiat seems to calm me in a weird way.


I had a sudden mysterious engine malady once. I think the honking must have caused it because it cleared up just as soon as the guy stopped honking.

Most states have statutes that say you can only use your horn as a warning device.  I.e. it's ok to honk it if somebody is about to change lanes without looking and turn right into you, but it's not ok to honk at a guy who you think drives like a jerk.  Nor can you honk to alert somebody in a residence that you're there and they should come outside.  These laws are rarely enforced, though.  In Pennsylvania it doesn't look like they have any such law, but they do have this:

"§ 5503. Disorderly conduct. (a) Offense defined.--A person is guilty of disorderly conduct if, with intent to cause public inconvenience, annoyance or alarm, or recklessly creating a risk thereof, he: (1) engages in fighting or threatening, or in violent or tumultuous behavior; (2) makes unreasonable noise; (3) uses obscene language, or makes an obscene gesture; or (4) creates a hazardous or physically offensive condition by any act which serves no legitimate purpose of the actor."

Which means the officer was well within his rights to request him to stop, and when he refused and continued to honk his horn the officer was once again well within his rights to place him under arrest for refusing a lawful order.

Appears there's nothing in the PA vehicle code about use of horn, but...

Title 18
§ 5503. Disorderly conduct.
(a) Offense defined.--A person is guilty of disorderly
conduct if, with intent to cause public inconvenience, annoyance
or alarm, or recklessly creating a risk thereof, he:
(1) engages in fighting or threatening, or in violent or
tumultuous behavior;
(2) makes unreasonable noise;
(3) uses obscene language, or makes an obscene gesture;
or
(4) creates a hazardous or physically offensive
condition by any act which serves no legitimate purpose of
the actor.
(b) Grading.--An offense under this section is a misdemeanor
of the third degree if the intent of the actor is to cause
substantial harm or serious inconvenience, or if he persists in
disorderly conduct after reasonable warning or request to
desist. Otherwise disorderly conduct is a summary offense.
(c) Definition.--As used in this section the word "public"
means affecting or likely to affect persons in a place to which
the public or a substantial group has access; among the places
included are highways, transport facilities, schools, prisons,
apartment houses, places of business or amusement, any
neighborhood, or any premises which are open to the public.


We have unreasonable noise in public and a reasonable request to desist. fark the guy with the horn fetish.

I was working as an inspector on a road construction project last summer.  At one point, one of the traffic signals was turned off for reconfiguration, so flaggers were letting one direction through the intersection at a time.  Traffic got pretty heavy by mid-afternoon, so it was taking two or three cycles for queued traffic to get through.  One guy waiting in the southbound queue three or four cars back started laying on his horn.  As the other southbound drivers gave him the stink eye, the flaggers mysteriously let the eastbound, northbound, and westbound traffic through three times before they remembered to let southbound traffic through.

I kind of just ported my experiences living in Cincinnati to PA.  If there's an asshole driving a truck around here, there's usually one of the above listed things going on.  In addition, I've traveled through the surrounding states, and all assholes driving trucks shared a similar collection of items of flair.  I then used my admittedly small sample size to theorize that PA truck drivers share a common trait with their Ohio Valley bretheren.

taoistlumberjak: stratagos: taoistlumberjak: Why do I get the feeling that this guy's truck has one or more of the following;

- Truck nuts
- Giant tires
- Smoke stacks
- A gun rack, sans guns
- An american flag/crying eagle painted on the back window
- A confederate flag bumper sticker
- A bumper sticker stating that their kid beat up your honor student

Because you're familiar with PA?

I kind of just ported my experiences living in Cincinnati to PA.  If there's an asshole driving a truck around here, there's usually one of the above listed things going on.  In addition, I've traveled through the surrounding states, and all assholes driving trucks shared a similar collection of items of flair.  I then used my admittedly small sample size to theorize that PA truck drivers share a common trait with their Ohio Valley bretheren.

I suspect I'm not mistaken, given the responses.


I truly think you may be on to something bigger than that.  I can attest that these assholes are currently infesting my corner of flyover country, so what we may be seeing is the first true offshoot of the human race clawing their way up out of the mud. I guess that's why they like their trucks so much.

Ok so the guy in the truck was a super douche and deserved what he got but it seems like officer ineffectual is the real reason that this got out of hand.  He couldn't get truck guy to STFU, then he couldn't convince him that he could be arrested then he tried to break his window using a bike helmet.  This guy lost control of the situation early and never even got close to getting it back.  What a pansy, he had a gun and a badge and more authority than is healthy for anybody to have and he still failed.

It's going to be uncomfortable in the cop locker room for a few months.

I'm wondering how you think he could have gotten it "under control" when Superdouche refused to obey a lawful order to STFU. Either one obeys an order or one doesn't; and after that the only OTHER option is a Tasering or a quick beatdown with a PR-24.

I don't think I've ever honked my car's horn...

Twice in my life I've waited a complete cycle behind an inattentive driver who never noticed they got a green arrow to turn left.  In both these cases, I refused to honk the horn to alert them to the arrow (partly because I hate the sound of my car's horn, partly because I was curious to see if they would ever look up from their phones...they didn't) which resulted in BOTH of us missing the opportunity to turn left.

Typically, there's someone behind me who honks his horn instead, relieving me of the burden of doing so.  In those two aforementioned instances, however, there was no one to honk on my behalf and I just couldn't summon the strength to do it myself.

If this guy was harboring that much anger just from sitting in traffic then it was a good thing he was arrested before he could blow up on someone somewhere else.  In fact he sounds like such a giant asshole that its a shame he wasn't pistol-whipped in front of a crowd and then tasered in the street.

I remember seeing some douche in a BMW, honking at the car ahead of him in bumper-to-bumper traffic. The guy in front couldn't move, because he had nowhere to go. Some homeless street kid walked over to the BMW, stuck his face in the window and yelled, "WHERE THE F**K DO YOU THINK HE'S GONNA GO? THE F**KIN' LIGHT IS RED!" Then he calmly walked away.

The standard radar cops just issuing tickets are usually pretty polite, they just want to write the ticket and get another, and you know if you were speeding or not. However, the ones who just decide to follow you for whatever reason or you come in contact with for a non-traffic issue are usually significantly more dickish. At least in my experience.

No, a quick toot on the horn is perfect when the person in front of you hasn't noticed that the light has changed, and a whole lane of traffic is missing their opportunity to actually go anywhere, not a long, drawn out blare, just enough to get them to wake up.

Now, when someone almost causes me to kill everyone in my car because they cut me off or something, I'm not above laying on the farking horn, since it's the only thing loud enough for these assholes to hear.

But in a solid wall of traffic with no breaks? Yeah, just someone being a prick.

In a traffic jam it might be inciting a riot.  Noise violation?  It's one thing to honk your horn once, or even to honk it repeatedly as you drive down the road, but honking it repeatedly near other people who can't get away from you?  At what point does that become fighting words?

The cops job was to control traffic.  I'd argue that a guy honking his horn over and over is making a bad traffic situation worse, distracting other drivers and making them edgy.  Edgy drivers cause accidents.  If he'd just arrested the guy, that would have been one thing, but he told him to stop and the guy didn't.

I can think of a couple, but the moment the officer tried out douching the superdouche is when he failed.  Grant you trying to handle a tense situation in bicycle shorts doesn't help, but staying eerily calm when someone is screaming will save you a chance of regaining control.  Having two emotionally screamers and criers will look like a pissing match to everyone else.

I guess you have never considered what would really happen if you were to try that.  I don't consider myself a gun expert, but I am sure the bullet will not penetrate the block and some shrapnel will make its way out of the engine compartment and likely strike someone.  Stop watching movies and go outside for once.

I don't know of any ordinances for cars and honking horns, however a trucker can get fined for excessive or improper use of horn.  My bro told me it was part of his CDL test to list the proper times to use his horn.  Also, I know from personal experience you can get fined for disobeying an officer directing traffic.  That was my first big ticket, which I got regardless the officer was not in plain sight and had his uniform covered by rain gear.  I am not talking cop rain gear but plain yellow anyone can purchase from a store rain gear.  It was an accident scene and the only person I saw was the wrecker driver sweeping up some glass, so I obeyed the light.

/run Cool Story Bro

On more than one occasion, I have been pulled over and I have never gone to jail for 1 reason, I was honest and polite to the officer.

This asshat in the same prediciments I was in would likely have gotton arrested too.

1) I was driving in the lane of a parking lot, a car (Later identified as the cop's car) was flying up not in a lane, I swerved thinking he was about to TBONE me, cop folloed me 1/2 a mile before he pulled me over (He was running my plate).  I was driving in an unregistered, uninspected vehicle in the Commonwelath of PA.  Upon approaching my drivers door, the officer noticed my inspection sticker was taped into my window, and asked me why.  Knowing I was screwed, I explained it was fake, I took a pic of a valid sticker, printer it on my inkjet printer and taped it in my windshield.  He had a shocked look on his face, pulled out a knife and tried removing the taped on paper, I told him I'd take it off and hand it to him if he put away the knife.  I also printed a registeration sticker for my plate he removed it also.

He where I got it, if I was selling them.  I explained no, I didn;t have the money to get it inspected or registered, it wasn't meant to fool anyone on close inspection, just in passing it appeard I had a valid stick in the window.

Instead of towning and impounding my car and giving me tickets for No registeration, No Inspection, and forging both documents, because I was honest, He let me drive my car home and park it untill I got it inspected and reregistered, Fined me for No Registeration, and No Inspection, and let me go.

2) 3am driving home from work a cop started following me down a dark back road, as soon as I poped out in a lit area he pulled me over, different car but again I was wrong and I was uninsured.  He asked me for lisence and registeration, he already knew I was uninsured from running my plate, upon opening my glove box, a metal pipe hit the bottom of the glove box and he was on the passanger side and saw it.

He now has probable cause to search my car, he had me hand him the pipe, and I thought I was going to jail.  I was asked to step out of the car and stand in front of it.  He explained My car was geting impounded due to no insurance, and because of the pipe he had probable cause to search the vehicle, and it would be in my best interest to cooperate. He asked if I had anything else in the car that he should know about.  I informed him where my stash was hidden, it was aprox 1g of MJ. I ended up getting my lisence suspended for driving weithout insurance, and my Car impounded.  For the Pipe and 1g of MJ, I got a disorderly conduct.  No possession charges, no para[phanilia charges, and no jail time just a fine.  Oh and the cop gave me a ride back to my house (12 Miles away) since I couldn't get ahold of anyone to pick me up at 3am.

Moral of the Story Cops can be nice if you are honest, and not a douche wad.

I recently saw our city cops training on their new Can Am Spyders. I thought they would have gone for something slightly more intimidating, like Segways.

fatkidinabeenie: /run Cool Story Bro

On more than one occasion, I have been pulled over and I have never gone to jail for 1 reason, I was honest and polite to the officer.

This asshat in the same prediciments I was in would likely have gotton arrested too.

1) I was driving in the lane of a parking lot, a car (Later identified as the cop's car) was flying up not in a lane, I swerved thinking he was about to TBONE me, cop folloed me 1/2 a mile before he pulled me over (He was running my plate).  I was driving in an unregistered, uninspected vehicle in the Commonwelath of PA.  Upon approaching my drivers door, the officer noticed my inspection sticker was taped into my window, and asked me why.  Knowing I was screwed, I explained it was fake, I took a pic of a valid sticker, printer it on my inkjet printer and taped it in my windshield.  He had a shocked look on his face, pulled out a knife and tried removing the taped on paper, I told him I'd take it off and hand it to him if he put away the knife.  I also printed a registeration sticker for my plate he removed it also.

He where I got it, if I was selling them.  I explained no, I didn;t have the money to get it inspected or registered, it wasn't meant to fool anyone on close inspection, just in passing it appeard I had a valid stick in the window.

Instead of towning and impounding my car and giving me tickets for No registeration, No Inspection, and forging both documents, because I was honest, He let me drive my car home and park it untill I got it inspected and reregistered, Fined me for No Registeration, and No Inspection, and let me go.

2) 3am driving home from work a cop started following me down a dark back road, as soon as I poped out in a lit area he pulled me over, different car but again I was wrong and I was uninsured.  He asked me for lisence and registeration, he already knew I was uninsured from running my plate, upon opening my glove box, a metal pipe hit the bottom of the glove box and he was on the passanger sid ...


moral of the story, don't forge your registration, don't drive if you can't afford to get your vehicle registered, and don't carry weed around in the car.

/how about that?
//I'm not calling you a moron, but perhaps you should think again whenever you think you have a "bright idea"

Never did I say I was right, or they were good Ideas, it was a bad time in my life I was able to turn around, My current vehicle is registered, inspected and insured, and I have been sober for over 3 years.

I am not looking for praise for finally straightening my life out, nor am I looking for pity for what I did wrong, I am merely saying the way you handle yourself goes a long way when dealing with Authority

CSS: One time, when my family was in Vegas, my mom took a wrong turn (Vegas: Do  not try to drive there without a map, and do  not forget to buy a map for Henderson at the edge of Death Valley, that's the only place they sell it,) and we wound up driving on the strip. At one point, traffic came to a standstill. Naturally, the car behind us began honking like it was going out of style. My mom threatened that, the next time he honked, she would get out, walk over, and say, "You summoned me?".

CSB: My family and I were stuck in traffic leaving Bay City, MI after their famous annual fireworks show when my uncle got out of the car.  He walked ahead and started directing traffic.  We were all surprised that it worked and after we passed him a ways, he caught up to us and got back in.  He is a large man who can carry a large appliance by himself, I know this because he does for his job.

Compares little to the time the same uncle was driving grandma around when a trucker cut him off causing an incident.  The trucker got out screaming and scared my uncle too much to get out to confront, which really surprises me knowing the kind of fights my uncle has been through.  Anyway 4'10" 90 lb grandma gets out and proceeds to let the trucker have it.  The trucker then sheepishly apologizes to my uncle.  I wish I was there for this story, I didn't believe till I heard straight from uncle's mouth.

During the Atlanta Olympics, some of the hotels put flyers in the rooms that had helpful tips on reducing friction with the locals. One was something like: "It may be that in your home city, it is acceptable behavior to immediately begin honking your car horn when the light turns green. In the American South, horn honking is generally considered a grave personal insult. What may be commonplace behavior in New York City may, instead, result in serious injury in the Atlanta Metro area. We therefore suggest that you refrain from using the car horn unless you are in imminent danger by a driver that is not paying attention"

That one and "People will generally smile, nod and speak to you here. This is not a threat, it is considered polite behavior"

Smelly Pirate Hooker: FTFA:

"You can't (expletive) arrest me."

Eventually was Miller handcuffed and arrested. Miller, of the 800 block of Second Street, is charged with reckless endangerment, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. He was arraigned by District Judge David Howells Jr. and was released today on $10,000 bail.

LOL. When keepin' it real goes wrong.

Also: "This is why people hate cops," from the asshole honking at people whose cars can't move because they're stuck in traffic.

Jesus, I hope on his way home from jail he stopped at the store and got the supply of diapers he clearly needs, since he's a gigantic farking baby.

Kahabut: jeffowl: Kahabut: When the officer first told him he was under arrest.. what was it for?

I have a problem with this, not because the asshole got his just deserts, but because the cop was over stepping himself.

Personally, I'd handle it differently, but then, I'm not a redneck with a self entitlement problem.  And I can afford an attorney.

In most jurisdictions honking your horn when there isn't an emergency or immediate need to get another driver's attention is cause for a citation.  The cop told the guy to knock it off, essentially giving him a warning.  The guy didn't take it.

The only thing the cop may have done wrong here is skipping to arrest instead of saying "turn off your vehicle and show me your license and registration" so the cop could write the ticket for excessive honking.  When the dbag refused to do that, and I think it's likely he would have refused, then the rest of what the cop did would have been fully justified.

Would have been, in your entirely fictional series of events.  Given that those events did not take place, they are not relevant to the story at hand.

Is it perfectly reasonable to assume as you did?  Sure.  Is it reasonable for a cop to do the same?  NOPE.  In fact, it's a violation of the law, and the constitution.


Wow, not only are you a self entitled douche, you're pretty clueless too. Welcome to my ignore list.

AND, for any other fool who thinks this is a first ammendment issue, I'd like to remind you that operating a motor vehicle is NOT covered under ANY of your constitutional rights. The minute you get in the driver's seat you are bound by the laws your local and state governments have set to help ensure you operate it in a safe and prudent manner. The jackass in the article obviously was not. He should not be allowed to drive. Ever. A bus pass for him too.

Wtf law was being broken?

PA Consolidated Statutes:
Title 18 § 5503. Disorderly conduct.
(a) Offense defined.--A person is guilty of disorderly conduct if, with intent to cause public inconvenience, annoyance or alarm, or recklessly creating a risk thereof, he:
(1) engages in fighting or threatening, or in violent or
tumultuous behavior;
(2) makes unreasonable noise;
(3) uses obscene language, or makes an obscene gesture;
or
(4) creates a hazardous or physically offensive condition by any act which serves no legitimate purpose of the actor.
(b) Grading.--An offense under this section is a misdemeanor of the third degree if the intent of the actor is to cause substantial harm or serious inconvenience, or if he persists in disorderly conduct after reasonable warning or request to desist. Otherwise disorderly conduct is a summary offense.
(c) Definition.--As used in this section the word "public" means affecting or likely to affect persons in a place to which the public or a substantial group has access; among the places included are highways, transport facilities, schools, prisons, apartment houses, places of business or amusement, any neighborhood, or any premises which are open to the public.


As has been detailed several times in this thread, the arrested was laying on his horn in bumper to bumper traffic (unreasonable noise), used obscene language at the officer and created a hazardous condition by moving his vehicle forward when there was no room to do so and while the cop was in contact with it. It is a misdemeanor because he persisted in doing all of this after a reasonable warning was issued by the cop. By moving the vehicle, after being told that he was being detained for the disorderly conduct, this asshat violated:

§ 2705. Recklessly endangering another person.
A person commits a misdemeanor of the second degree if he recklessly engages in conduct which places or may place another person in danger of death or serious bodily injury.


and

§ 5104. Resisting arrest or other law enforcement.
A person commits a misdemeanor of the second degree if, with the intent of preventing a public servant from effecting a lawful arrest or discharging any other duty, the person creates a substantial risk of bodily injury to the public servant or anyone else, or employs means justifying or requiring substantial force to overcome the resistance.


Since the man rolled his windows up and locked the door and declared that the cop couldn't arrest him, after being told he was under arrest for the Disorderly Conduct violation, substantial force was required to remove him from the vehicle and actually place the man under arrest.

Car horns are to be used as a warning device or in emergencies, they're not for taking out your frustration in a traffic jam. Although you probably don't hear of it being enforced often, most places will either have laws directly dealing with blowing your horn for no reason or they'll simply charge you under disorderly conduct for excessive noise.

lack of warmth: Gyrfalcon: Egoy3k: Ok so the guy in the truck was a super douche and deserved what he got but it seems like officer ineffectual is the real reason that this got out of hand.  He couldn't get truck guy to STFU, then he couldn't convince him that he could be arrested then he tried to break his window using a bike helmet.  This guy lost control of the situation early and never even got close to getting it back.  What a pansy, he had a gun and a badge and more authority than is healthy for anybody to have and he still failed.

It's going to be uncomfortable in the cop locker room for a few months.

I'm wondering how you think he could have gotten it "under control" when Superdouche refused to obey a lawful order to STFU. Either one obeys an order or one doesn't; and after that the only OTHER option is a Tasering or a quick beatdown with a PR-24.

I can think of a couple, but the moment the officer tried out douching the superdouche is when he failed.  Grant you trying to handle a tense situation in bicycle shorts doesn't help, but staying eerily calm when someone is screaming will save you a chance of regaining control.  Having two emotionally screamers and criers will look like a pissing match to everyone else.

Deep Contact: Disappointed cop didn't empty Glock into engine.
 That would of been funny.

I guess you have never considered what would really happen if you were to try that.  I don't consider myself a gun expert, but I am sure the bullet will not penetrate the block and some shrapnel will make its way out of the engine compartment and likely strike someone.  Stop watching movies and go outside for once.


That's the funny part.

erewhon: tbeatty:
Actually, the order to stop honking is not a traffic warning, it's a lawful order.  Failure to obey that order is a criminal offense, not a traffic offense.

Not everything a cop tells you to do is a lawful order. "Lawful order" generally has a pretty narrow scope in most jurisdictions. Much more narrow than most cops think it is.


Generally not related to traffic.  police that say stop, go, turn left, right, stop hinking horn, etc  are lawful orders an officer can give.  Failure to obey is arrestable.
