    Wow. Just wow. I had been told the .40 thing before and assumed it was true. The highest I've ever seen in a driver was a .30.

    "Did you know I saw the chief yesterday?"

    Me: Really? I saw him today when I coded past him. Turn around and put your hands behind your back...

    I want my lawyer. I know the law, you can't search me without my lawyer present.

    Yeah, that's always a gem, in the UK we have what we call a Section 17 PACE search which means we don't need a warrant but you'd be amazed at how many people think we do, trained by Hollywood
    Spare them but a rearwards glance,
    These gentle heroes which we leave behind us,
    And as the years pass,
    When men behind desks feel safe to call
    Their action's madness,
    Be not ashamed to say,
    You loved them

    Nobody gets into the back of my squad without being searched. Bad things happen when you cut corners.

    I rolled up on a bloody kid one evening:

    Him: " I fell off my skateboard, can you drive me home."

    Me: "Sure guy, but I have to search you."

    Him: "No problem, go ahead."

    Whole front pocket was full of weed, and the gem that followed:

    "Oh, yea I forgot that was in there."

    In the 10+ years I've done this, I've only seen .40. .72 is insanely high. Maybe I should stop working dui's and start stopping hobos, lol.

    Partner and I are blocking the street for the fire department. They have four trucks and about 30 fire fighters doing their thing. Building is fully engulfed. Guy walks up to us and asks what's going on. We both respond by saying, looks like a fire to us....Guy walks away confused.

    The only way you get those high BAC's are with long term/hardcore alcoholics

    CACBAND works/worked in a situation where alcohol was a major problem

    That .602 that I talk about earlier......................he was a successful business man who had hidden his drinking problem from the public for years--------------family knew it but not his friends.

    By accident I found that if you use purell or any other hand sanitizer before giving a pbt you get a false increased reading on the pbt due to the alcohol from the hand sanitizer.

    Traffic stop, one of my first solo stops after getting off field training (and where I learned 1st hand how long drunk stops take lol)

    "You just messin wit me 'cause I'm bla....."

    He didn't finish the sentence, because even his alcohol addled mind realized we're the same race....

    "hah, I'm going to get off scott free, you didn't read me my rights"..... It was a warrant arrest and I ain't no detective ..

    I was getting the squad washed at the car wash we have a contract with. While waiting for the squad to get done, a guy comes up to me and asks how often we get the squads washed. When they get dirty.....

    Of course we all get the "do you know officer X, he is a good friend of mine"? Tell him I said Hi. OK, if he is such a good friend, why don't YOU say Hi to him yourself?

    Never fails, right as you get your food, someone comes up to you and says, "sorry to bother you, but". So don't bother me, save your apology and ask me the question AFTER I am done eating.

    I was once told, there are no stupid questions. Just stupid people asking questions.
