Well, have fun at fake jail, then, you knob.

He would have totally gotten away with it if the police didn't have caller id. Who knew?

And knowing is half the battle.

He didn't learn the first time? Dude, what you do is call in your fake emergency BEFORE you start driving. Going to the mall on the east side of town? Call in your fake emergency on the west side of town, -THEN- drive like a bat out of hell. Going to the movies? Call in a fake emergency at the grocery store, then floor it.

Wait, why did they arrest him at home? TFA says the cops figured out it was him while doing the traffic stop.

Idiot.  You don't call 911, you have a police scanner and call out "Officer Down! Officer Down!" and a location over the radio.

I love these tales. They make me feel less stupider.

It would have to be close to his area if he hoped to get the officer pulled from the traffic stop.  Cities tend to have enough officers to usually pull only close proximity officers to a call.  Now if the situation calls for more officers, they'll pull the further away officers.

What?  You mean my cunning stunt backfired.

And that really does look like mugshot of someone who would do something so stupid.

Look officer.  I know you got me for speeding but I'm on my way to commit a murder.  Now capturing a murderer would look a lot better for you than just a speeder, right?  So, just give me a five minute head start and then meet me at Wadlow and Hollywood.  You can be first on the scene and arrest me.  But before you let me go, do you want to take me "without incident" or do you want a "running gun battle"?  Your choice.

The prosecutor's office had to decide what to charge him with and issue an arrest warrant.

Why would anyone think reporting a fake murder would get you anywhere?

Sounds like it was this guy's SOP when getting pulled over.  I hope they give this jerk a nice long sentence.
 
2014-07-25 10:34:49 AM  
Seriously, I'm no huge fan of the po-po, but messing with 911 resources when someone else could be having a legit emergency is farked up. Throw the book at him.

It's not rock solid logic. I am assuming that the prosecutor's office did not have a ham sandwich available.

So a cop files a false report and nothing happens to them.
A citizen files a false report and it's an instant felony.

/just another reason why cops are hated

I see the grammar nazis are out in full force.
Any chance you suck cop dick, too?
The first half was intended to be singular while the second half was meant to be plural.
You ass.

No, but I used to lick cop pussy, back in the day. Keep working on that singular/plural tense agreement, champ.

I can imagine this happens a lot more because that one story came out about the chick who did it and got away with it like 8 times.

Anytime I have seen a person with a gun call it looks like the entire force comes for the show.

Except for the fact that a scanner isn't a 2-way radio... but good effort.

Not Flint, they likely will send one to just fill out property damage reports.  If there is a body, they'll call a couple others.

If that was real (it's gone now) then we have an absolute criminal mastermind on our hands, boys.
