As any seasoned police officer knows, vehicle stops aren't predictable. Yes, they present risks. If our Facebook page is any indication, they also give you a rich vein of stories about misbehaving motorists.
So with this in mind, we posted an "outtake" from our monthly Well-Dressed Officer contest, and asked you to provide the caption. You gave us some very funny responses. Look for our photo-caption contest each coming month.
As you will remember, the photo (seen above) shows POLICE Publisher Leslie Pfeiffer being stopped by a motor officer, while behind the wheel of a golf cart. A body is laying face down in front of the left-front wheel. Instead of a license, registration or insurance, she appears to be handing the officer a credit card.
We'll tell you who won the $50 VISA gift card for providing the best caption, but first here are a few of the other great responses you posted on the POLICE Facebook page. First from the driver's point of view:
Amy wrote, "No worries officer, we are practicing for a Halloween party. I'm Elin, and my husband is Tiger."
Rachel wrote, "Well officer, he looked like that guy on the FBI's Most Wanted list. So I called the FBI, and they said to stop him. So I did!"
Wyatt wrote, "There is nothing wrong with my driving! I haven't missed a fairway all day!"
Anthony wrote, "Don't worry about him officer. He's just checking my brakes. I felt they were slipping."
Here are a few from the officer's point of view:
Clint write, "Excuse me ma'am? Have you seen a man wearing blue jeans, a green T-shirt [who's] about 6-foot, 200 pounds? We had another golfer that stated he was running around the course shouting, "my wife is trying to kill me."
Stephen wrote, "Ma'am, how much do you pay your homeowners' association for these speed bumps?"
Mark wrote, "Weren't you paying attention? Didn't you see my lights back there? I had to throw that guy in your path to get you to stop!"
Heather wrote, "Tell your husband to stop the planking shenanigans and get up out of the roadway."
Without further ado, here's the winning caption. It comes from Chris Moore, who wrote, "I wanted to yell "fore" but his friend was putting."
