We’ve all done it. You’re in a rush so you wipe just enough snow off the windshield to provide a portal for navigation while the defroster clears off the rest. But an 80-year-old Ontario man took it to the extreme and as a result was charged for driving an unsafe car almost completely covered with snow.
The car had only a portion of the driver’s side windshield cleared for vision. Brussels police pointed out the car was quite easy to spot saying it “resembled a pile of snow in the road”.
Police spokesman James Stanley said the man said he was too old and weak to brush it off. The officer cleared the snow from the man’s car and let him on his way.
Police in Texas are apparently on the lookout for a man with an odd spherically-shaped head. The sketch above was issued in Lamar County and depicts a bobble-headed man wanted in connection with the robbery of two women in Texas. The sketch artist took the description from witnesses, who described the assailant as “round-faced”, quite literally. Police say that once the man is captured and rolled into the police station, they will release an updated photo.
A man going through his mid-life crisis purchased a brand new BMW and was out on the interstate for a nice evening drive. The top was down, the wind was blowing through what was left of his hair, and feeling spry, he decided to see how fast this new baby could go. As the needle jumped up to 80 mph, he suddenly saw flashing red and blue lights behind him.
“There’s no way they can catch a BMW,” he thought to himself and opened her up further.
The needle hit 90, 100…. then the reality of the situation hit him.
“What the heck am I doing? I could go to jail over this.” he thought.
He slowed down the car and pulled over. The cop came up to him, took his license without a word, and examined it and the car.
“It’s been a long day, this is the end of my shift, and I don’t much feel like doing any paperwork, so if you can give me an excuse for your hazardous driving that I haven’t heard before, I will let you go.”
The guy thinks for a second and says, “Last week my wife ran off with a cop. I was afraid you were trying to give her back.”
“Have a nice weekend,” said the officer.
Little Johnny’s kindergarten class was on a field trip to their local police station where they saw “wanted” pictures, posted on the wall, of the 10 most wanted criminals. One of the youngsters pointed to a picture and asked if it really was the photo of a criminal that was wanted by the law.
“Yes,” said the policeman. “The detectives want very badly to find and capture him.”
With a puzzled look on his face, little Johnny asked, “Well, why didn’t you keep him when you took his picture?”
