Listen, when a cop comes up to you, the best thing to do is be courteous and respectful. Otherwise, if you’re gonna try to be a dickish dude-bro, you’re gonna have a bad time. According to these cops, there are plenty of times an excusable action turned into a moment of “well…now I gotta arrest you.”
“I was a Park Ranger and we used to have a bunch of kids who liked to sit on a hill and smoke weed. Now they walked in and out and were just goofy kids and basically behaved so I left them be until Travis came along.
Travis had a joint in his hand as I walked up, he was told to toss it in the drain. Travis takes a big ole hit and exhaled in my face. I still let it go but began to simmer, he pinches the cherry and tries to pocket the joint. That was it Travis gets clipped, dumbass had an ounce in his sock and several blunts in his pocket. Stupid.”
