It was 7:02. The weather was muggy, but the skies were clear. We needed some rain, but we wouldn’t get it today.
I was working out of traffic. My partner was Bill Gannon. The captain was Jim Hamilton. I was riding undercover, when I spotted the blue lights behind me. I pulled over.
I’ll let the press take it from here. They know how to write. I just fill out forms in triplicate. After filling out these forms, I could use some coffee. Bill says the machine’s not working. Figures.
Authorities say a man packing a blue light and a BB gun pulled over a non-descript car on Interstate 95 [in Florida], ready to play “traffic cop” again.
Bad move: the driver he pulled over is a real police detective. —AP story at WJLA, Washington
My report says Pacheco Bustamente had impersonated police officers before, a felony in Florida.
He’s 46 years years old. He ought to know better. You tell them, “Don’t do it again.” But they never listen.
Now, he’s looking for a lawyer.
Here’s how I figure it.
He probably wants a real one.
We’ll be back in 11 months with the results of that trial.
Comment: My favorite attorney, Lionel Hutz, is rested and ready.
Thanks to Jihan Varisco for finding this treat.
