There's really no faster way to get arrested than to tell a police officer that he can't arrest you.

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.

Seeing as that quotation is coming from the guy who got arrested, we should all take it with a grain of salt.  When you have sand in your vagina 15 minutes = 1 hour.

cops can and will arrest you for irritating them, even when you've done nothing illegal.  they know how to spin your legal activity into illegal.

For everyone clamoring about how the cop was overstepping when he first told the guy he was under arrest, I would guess that the incessant horn honking and blatant belligerence was probable cause to suspect DUI.

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.

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.

Anyone criticizing the cop has never been to a State fair, 4th of July gathering, or Nascar race and had to put up with the drunk cocksucker who belts out "Whooooo!" every 20 seconds, and stumbles to the parking lot claiming loudly "I feel like whuppin' someone's ass!" before cutting people off and driving aggressively to gain that half a car length in the long line to exit.

PsiChick: 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?".

/Unfortunately, it didn't happen
//The smackdown would've been  epic
///With the smart money on my mom


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.

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.

Why the fark are people defending this asshole laying on his horn? Do you all like the sound of a vehicle honking for no goddam reason? It's bad enough to have to sit in traffic, but having to listen to some dickhead childlishly honking his horn over and over would have me applauding as the cop cuffs him and throws his dumb ass in the back of the squad car.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Krieghund: ffacker: For everyone clamoring about how the cop was overstepping when he first told the guy he was under arrest, I would guess that the incessant horn honking and blatant belligerence was probable cause to suspect DUI.

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.


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.

I honestly have no words other than if she's married I wish the husband a sweet painless death.  Soon.

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.

"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.
