And the real cops let him off with only a warning?

That would be the death penalty in Texas....

Damn, if you think a cop hasn't turned in his badge by 74, you're a little bit of a sucker. That, or you're so drunk and succeptible, you should stop drinking anyways.

Look, if you're not smart enough to put your booze in a non see through reusable water bottle *before* you get to the water I have little sympathy. Plan ahead, people.

Granted, maybe you're a beer person. That's what canoes are for. Or situational awareness and a place to discretely store your stock and empties, either/or.

Oh, heck, on Canada Day?! That's just... Not Canadian, eh.

Off-duty members stopped the man and warned him about his ploy

No word on whether they confiscated the booze that he had confiscated.

Agreed, I never heard of anyone getting let off with a warning for a felony.

Off-duty members stopped the man and warned him about his ploy at about 3:30 p.m.

"Eh, that's our gig, eh!"

/then the old man arrested the off-duty officers, but let them off with $100 fine each,,,, *rim shot*

Something like that happened to me when a group of us underaged kids (circa high school) brought booze to the "drive-in"*.  Cops came up and took our booze but let us off with a warning. I'm sure they took the booze home with them. These days they would have thrown us in the "slammer"*.

* = If you don't know what those terms mean, then get offa' my lawn!

The trick is to bring a cooler, even a cheap tiny soft sided one. You let them roll around on the canoe floor, they're gonna blow up when you crack one open. I mean, you're on a dang canoe, regardless you're gonna get some overflow. But minimize it - that's precious beer, even more precious if you're not a hop skip to the party store, even if they're just Labatt tall boys.

"Sir, do you realize that you were falsely impersonating a Police officer and unlawfully confiscating peoples' alcohol? I know it can happen with a bit of inattention, but I advise you to be more aware in the future. Have a nice day, and be more careful."

Even better if they're Black Label, though.

Ha. Can't say I've ever had a Carling myself. I guess it's a regional thing. My Mom's from North Dakota and can drink like a pro. If I'm ever in your area, the Carlings are on me.

Sounds good. Next time you're in The South of Florida, my wife and I would be happy to take you up on your offer!  Sad thing, however, is that it's hard to find BL in our parts these days. Back in the olden days circa high school (80's), however, it was always available at 7-11's and whatnot at maybe $1.99 for a 6-er (if not less). Yeah, it was a "training beer".

Awesome. I love my Mom. I should call her tomorrow and ask her about her underage drinking days. I already have heard plenty of her Purple Jesus out of a garbage can stories.

Man that 70~ year old really had some moxy. Pity he probably confiscated a lot of horse piss.

If your mom is as potentially cool as she sounds---do ask and I'll bet she'll have fun telling stories. I recently had a "milestone" birthday and my mom revealed some cool things from her olden days that I never knew about but were not much different than what I did. In one sense it was "weird" to learn that my mom was once "young"....but, in reality, that's how it is and hopefully we'll live to be old enough to tell those same "Hey, Mabel!" (or whatever) stories to others long after they become "old history" or no longer socially relevant.  Trust me on that.

My wife's Uncle died a while ago and one of the last things he said to us was, to paraphrase, "You always think that when you 'get older' you will somehow 'feel old' and 'different'. But you don't. You're always the same person you always were."

Yeah, she's pretty rad. Way funnier than I'll ever be.

If it worked on Canada Day, it'll work for the Fourth of July.

Wish me luck, boys. I still have my police officer Halloween costume.

Curses. Foiled again.

Something similar happened here recently.  Couple of azzhats with a white Expedition wired red and blue flashers into the grill then went around campsites at night doing "Safety Inspections" and "Confiscating" alcohol.

Worked pretty well for a few weeks until someone saw through the ruse and pulled a gun on them.  So of course these 2 rocket surgeons did the only thing one could do in this situation:  They called the real cops to report the guy for threatening them.

One of my friends was the responding officer.  He said the look on the 2 imposters faces was priceless when he (after figuring out what was going on) informed them that their Expedition was being impounded, they were going to jail, and they were damn lucky they hadn't been shot.

I'm guessing the only reason he got a warning was because the off-duty cops who stopped him didn't want to ruin their Canada Day by having to do a bunch of paper work.  Presumably on-duty cops would have done more.
