Can you be arrested for jumping over a cop? Watch this.
When most people are arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, their first thought is either “I’m screwed” or “Shit.” When Bob Ryan, the former mayor of Sheboygan, Wisconsin, ran afoul of the cops in early March, his first thought was a bit different: Where is that “smoking” “hot” Manitowoc police officer? NOT THESE HOT COPS.
Divine intervention? When police answered a 911 call in Tacoma, Washington, late Tuesday night, they heard a man in a car attempting to stifle the screams of a female passenger.
Officers traced the call to a vehicle, which they saw run a red light. The driver refused to pull over, but stopped to let his passenger out and eventually ditched the car himself, fleeing on foot. The vehicle, likely stolen, contained several shaved keys was was registered in Canada.
Police were unable to spot the perp — until he unknowingly called 911 again. Cops found the now-reunited couple in another car. The man, 47, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and violating a no-contact order. The woman was arrested on outstanding warrants.
“Police said the man was drunk and didn’t realize that his cell phone had twice dialed 911,” reported the News Tribune.
If somebody told me this happened to them, I absolutely would not believe this could happen in America. … “I never had any clue that they thought they could take my money legally.
