Texas coed rams cop car while taking topless selfie

The dog has brains enough NOT to take selfies while driving

❝ Police say a 19-year-old Texas A&M University student who rear-ended a squad car told an officer she was taking a topless selfie.

Miranda Kay Rader posted $200 bond after she was charged with drunken driving and possessing alcohol as a minor.

❝ A police report says an officer was checking a reported disturbance when he heard brakes squeal and an SUV slam into the patrol car behind him. Rader told the officer she was taking a topless selfie of herself to Snapchat to her boyfriend.

Police say an open bottle of wine was in her console cup holder.

Hopefully, her major is not Public Safety.

Ford F-150 reports for police duty

Having launched police versions of its Taurus and Explorer, Ford has taken America’s best selling truck and given it the police treatment, too. The F-150 Special Service Vehicle takes a regular Ford truck and strips it out to handle all the donuts and coffees America’s police officers can throw at it. Oh, and we’re sure it’ll be able to deal with criminals, too.

Because of the extra on-board equipment police and government agencies need to run, the first change Ford has made to the F-150 is a 240 volt high-power alternator. There’s also easy wash rear seats, just in case your nightly patrol turns messy and the vinyl needs to be hosed out…

…Missing are the 2.7-liter EcoBoost and non EcoBoost V6 options…The 5.0-liter V8 and all-wheel drive can still be had, though. There is also a semi-skim 3.5-liter EcoBoost motor available, as well as two-wheel drive.

Plenty of rural coppers are better served by pickups instead of SUVs. The halo effect of an F-150 on police sales is obvious. Though the opposite route seems to be happening — the addition of a Taurus Interceptor surely seems to be increasing sales of the civilian version in my neck of the prairie.

Copper kills unarmed man who “walked with purpose” towards police car

Seven years on the force – probably had one of their shiny new police cars

A veteran police officer shot and killed an unarmed man this week in Des Moines, Iowa, after firing through the rolled-up window of her patrol car. Police say the man, identified as 28-year-old Ryan Keith Bolinger, “walked with purpose” toward officer Vanessa Miller’s vehicle when she fired the fatal shot.

According to police, the incident began on Tuesday night when Bolinger pulled up his Lincoln sedan to a Des Moines police patrol car helping to make an unrelated traffic stop of another vehicle. Bolinger was allegedly so close to the pullover that the officer inside could not open his door.

In a press conference on Wednesday, Des Moines police sergeant Jason Halifax said Bolinger then got out of his car and began “dancing in the street or making unusual movements in the street”.

Halifax said that Bolinger then got back into his vehicle and led police on a low-speed chase before making a U-turn, giving officers an opportunity to block his path with their patrol cars.

It was at this point, Halifax said, that Bolinger got out of his Lincoln and rushed toward the officer’s vehicle. Officer Miller, a seven-year veteran, fired one shot at Bolinger’s torso, who died on the scene.

No weapons were found on or near Bolinger’s body.

Life in America. Anywhere in these United States. Your life is in the hands of someone with a gun.

Dancing on police cars stops vampire ritual human sacrifice — Huh? Wha?

Authorities in Florida shared video of a man dancing on a marked sheriff’s office sport-utility vehicle in an incident he blamed on vampires.

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office shared video on YouTube and Facebook showing Christian Radecki climbing atop a marked sheriff’s office SUV and performing a dance routine to songs including Hall & Oates’ “Rich Girl” and Supertramp’s “Goodbye Stranger.”

Radecki, who was arrested on charges of disturbing the peace and criminal mischief, told deputies a “woman with fangs” came to his door and told him a human sacrifice involving vampires was imminent.

“Therefore, Radecki made the conscious decision to get the Sheriff of Nottingham to help him stop the slaughter of small children,” the Cape Coral police report of the April 7 incident states.

Radecki told officers he was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the incident and he has not been diagnosed with any mental health conditions.

Of course, the doctor who told him he didn’t have any mental health conditions – was probably one of the vampires.

Chicago coppers investigating burglary, uh, lose their squad car!


A police squad car was reported missing this morning during a burglary call and turned up shortly afterward blocks away, police said.

About 4:15 a.m., police officers reported the squad car missing after a premises check in the 3500 block of South California Avenue in the Brighton Park neighborhood on the Southwest Side, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Janel Sedevic said. The officers had been investigating after the activation of a burglar alarm in a building on the block.

Officers found the squad car abandoned shortly after, blocks from where the officers had left it, Sedevic said.

No suspects were in custody as of early this morning.

Yup. Every police department in the country lectures us about never leaving our keys in the car.

Not certain what sort of administrative hassles these coppers will be up for. Probably won’t match the embarrassment they feel.

Memphis cop brings illicit sexual meaning to protect and serve!

Memphis hooker delivery service

Yes, officers are sworn to uphold the law, but one Memphis police officer had other plans of what he would do with his police authority and MPD provided squad car.

Thirty year old Memphis police officer Sean McWhirter decided he would use his squad car to transport and traffick prostitutes from Memphis to Mississippi.

Unfortunately for McWhirter, he as well as the handful of prostitutes, were all busted by Special Agents and Task Force Officers of the FBI in a sex trafficking sting operation on their last and expected final trip…

According to a release by the Department of Justice, McWhirter was transporting the three women from Memphis to a hotel in Tunica, Mississippi “for the purpose of prostitution.”

McWhirter, who was allegedly offering sex with the girls for $50, has since been released on $10,000 bail after his arrest, relieved of duty with pay, while pending investigation.

Sources add that there may also be some videos of McWhirter at a Memphis nightclub performing sexual acts with one of the prostitutes, McWhirter’s alleged girlfriend. McWhirter allegedly used the sexual acts with her, as a form of promoting sex with the prostitutes…

Protect your hookers – and serve ’em up to paying customers. Across a state line to boot.

Amish youngsters busted for under age drinking after crashing their horse-drawn carriage — into a police car!

Four youngsters from the religious Amish community have been charged with under age drinking after their horse-drawn carriage crashed into a police car.

Three men aged 19 and 20, and an 18-year-old woman, were arrested after the collision in Sherman, New York state, when several containers of alcohol were found in their buggy. The legal drinking age in New York is 21.

The Amish are a Christian community known for their simple lifestyle, shunning modern technology and retaining 18th century forms of dress…

The four youngsters are alleged to have been at an under age drinking party on a back road near the state border with Pennsylvania, where most Amish families live, when they set out for a drive in two carriages.

As the buggies allegedly wove across a public road, one, driven by Marty Troyer, 20, with Marianne Troyer, 18, and Marvin Byler, 19, as passengers, collided with a Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Department patrol car which was on its way to investigate reports of illegal drinking.

The buggy flipped over, trapping Byler’s leg and leading a horse to become loose. Twenty-year-old Leroy Troyer, who was driving the second buggy, was also arrested…

The three Troyers are related but do not live in the same house. Byler was not seriously injured in the collision.

The headline says it all, eh? Being religious, moral and restrained by parental and community rules is no guarantee against stupid.

Bees trap deputy inside car for 3 hours

Tuesday was anything but a routine day for Deputy Brandon Jenkins, who spent three hours in his patrol car after nearly 50,000 honeybees decided to park on it.

The Wake County Sheriff’s Office officer had responded around 9:40 a.m. to a call of a person possibly being attacked by bees. He found a disabled truck on U.S. 64 a few miles east of Raleigh, North Carolina. Behind it was a trailer holding 60 boxes of bees.

The truck driver, who was headed for Rocky Mount, had been hauling the bees at night, when they are quiet and not apt to fly. He spent a couple hours after daybreak trying to get someone to tow the trailer and his truck…

That’s when Jenkins, 31, pulled up 50 yards behind in his Dodge Charger. By then, the day was beginning to warm…

Eventually, the vehicles were towed off, leaving him still in his Dodge. “I was told that usually when a truck starts moving, the bees will follow behind.”


The insects spent the next three hours crawling over the vehicle, especially on the trunk and side panels. “At some point, it was hard to see out of the windows,” said Jenkins.

Heatherly, a hobbyist, and Keller, a honeybee technician at North Carolina State University, went to work. “They got a little testy,” said Heatherly who, like Keller, was not wearing a protective body suit.

They used smoke on the bees, which Keller says “masks their communication,” and a spray bottle of sugar water. The sticky mix makes it harder for the bees to fly and they concentrate on grooming themselves rather than attacking humans…

Eventually, the beekeepers brushed the bees onto a piece of plastic and then into a hive box.

Keller and Heatherly between them were stung only three or four times. Jenkins said about six bees got in his patrol car. He dispatched a couple when “they got too close to my personal space.”

Mind your own beeswax, I always say.

Pick that shiny (police!) car to line out your drugs for snorting!

German police detained a nightclub reveler they caught trying to snort amphetamines off the top of their unmarked patrol car.

The 26-year-old began lining up the powdered drugs on the roof of the car in a disco car park, when the two police officers surprised him, a Nuremberg police spokesman said on Tuesday.

The man had no idea the normal looking vehicle belonged to the police, and it was coincidence that the officers — who were walking by their parked car — discovered him just as he was about to take the drugs.

He’s got horrible luck,” said Bert Rauenbusch, police spokesman in the southern German city.

Yeah, that’s one of the things you could say about him.

Escaped killer picked off getaway bike

Germany’s most wanted fugitive was captured Tuesday after a five-day manhunt, when police knocked the escaped murderer off the woman’s bicycle he was riding along a rural road near the Dutch border.

Peter Paul Michalski surrendered without a fight after an unmarked police car deliberately crashed into him, knocking him off the bicycle onto the grassy shoulder of the road.

The 46-year-old, who was serving a life sentence when he escaped from prison last week, was carrying a pistol. An accomplice in the escape was captured Sunday.

They made a copy of a key inside the jail and simply unlocked several doors to escape, according to German media reports. They even stopped to wave good-bye to a security camera outside the front gate before getting into a taxi.

Cars trump bicycles every time.
