• A False Arrest

    THE LIGHT TURNED YELLOW

    The light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing,
    stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red
    light by accelerating through the intersection.

    The tailgating woman was furious and honked her horn, screaming in
    frustration, as she missed her chance to get through the intersection,
    dropping her cell phone and makeup.

    As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked
    up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered
    her to exit her car with her hands up.

    He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a holding cell.

    After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the
    door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting
    officer was waiting with her personal effects.

    He said, "I'm very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind
    your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front
    of you and cussing a blue streak at him. I noticed the 'What Would Jesus
    Do' bumper sticker, the 'Choose Life' license plate holder, the 'Follow
    Me to Sunday-School' bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian
    fish emblem on the trunk, so naturally I assumed you had stolen the car."
