so, i am driving home to St Louis from Annapolis with all my stuff from my apartment in my car. and i see a cop tailing a van, and think nothing of it until the van swerves off to the shoulder (he was in the right lane and i was in the left just behind the cop.) the cop throws on his lights and i am thinking "oh fuck, that didn't look good for the cop." so i proceed on my way, not hearing any gun shots or anything. and i get off at an exit ramp about a mile down the road for a bite to eat. i'm sitting at the red light at the top of the off ramp and i hear sirens and i couldn't figure out where they were coming from until that same van blows by me on my right, followed by the cop. so, naturally, being the nosy kid i am, i punch it and follow. anyway, to make a long story short, i cut the guy off and tried to stop him (i hate people who run from cops) and the fucker hit the back end of my car - only left a scuff, but still! anyway, the cop caught him about a half a mile later, so i went and gave my name as a witness and asked if they'd like to nail him for a hit and run accident too. that was a nice little adventure in the middle of my 14 hour drive :)

and then there was the ricer in an accura integra once i got home to STL. i had unloaded my car and was getting gas when i hear a weed wacker pull up to the gas station. i look over at a tastefully done exterior. and the kid looks at me disapprovingly. so we left the gas station at about the same time and got on the highway - and he was spraying. he kept up, but not for long :) and he did the normal ricer fly-by (i shut down at 110 and he was about 3 lengths back when i quit). and i saw this huge black cloud of shit flying out his tail-pipe. if that is what NOS does to a car, i am never touching the stuff!

You = ghey

Mind your own business dude. What if the van had some dying kid in it, and he pulled off to tell the cops the story, and then got a police escort to the hospital? Vigilante justice like that shit gets people KILLED. Either go get a badge of your own, or stay the fuck out of the way. [email protected]~#@!#!!!!!

Not to mention the fact that this cop was cool with it? Dude, you're lucky you didn't get arrested for interfering in a police pursuit.

reminds me of the movie with charlie sheen, when the two guys from the red hot chili peppers try ramming the run away car with their truck and end up flipping.

I wouldnt do that, but id prob. follow the pusuit out of interest. then watch the fucker get shot

Valheru: I like what you did trying to help out a cop. Maybe by helping them sports car drivers might get a better reputation.

Jon3k: Usually policeman are in front of the car when they "escort" somebody :rolleyes: He was just trying to help them out. give him a break. Nothing bad happened so no harm no foul. If I was in his situation I would probably do the same thing. Anyways nice job Val.

sorry guys, but I'd like to keep my car. And better yet, screw taking out a van. Let the cop handle it. He was trained for stuff like that...we're just people out on the roads minding our own business...keep it that way. There's no point in risking your life and the lifes of others just to get in on a piece of the action.

Man, I can see that the 14 hour drive might have had you bored as shit, but you gotta be out of your mind to throw your car in the way of a speeding van. That has got to be just about the dumbest shit you could pull with your car....anyways, did you tell your mom what you did when you got home? She'd probably revoke your right to drive that car......you deserve to drive like an '82 Ford Tempo or something.

Okay, enough scolding....just don't do it again.

So you took out a ricer, huh? Okay, you almost made up for what you previously did.

ok, perhaps i shouldn't have made a long story short. :) i was getting off at that exit for some food. the chase proceeded in the direction of McDonalds (the place i was going to get some food.) when i cut the van off, he had made a right off of the main road, another right into a parking lot and was crossing a grass median between the parking lot and the main road (so, he made kind of a box, returning to the main road and approaching me from my right.) he was crossing the grass just as i was coming up to him. i had three choices, 1) speed up, let him go behind me 2)slow down and let him cross in front of me or 3) stop in his way and give the cop an edge for a second. i just made sure i was in the right place at the right time. i didn't go out of my way, i only drove a bit faster than i otherwise would have, and i did not get in the cop's way - just the van's. once the van had cleared my bumper, i floored it and got out of the cops way.

jon3k: vigilante justice would be when i make myself judge jury and executioner - i did none of the above. now is not the time to be running from cops. and it's kind of difficult to have a dying kid in the car when the van is full of cardboard boxes. and you don't generally go off-roading in circles when taking someone to the hospital.

and ZC3000, i'm a bit old to have my parents regulating my driving. it's my car, not my parent's. they can't exactly revoke my ability to drive it.

either way, i was just in the right place at the right time and was presented with the opportunity to do something to help. i took it. i would seriously hope others would do the same. cops have it hard enough (i just got done with an assignment working with them - i know.) without dumbass people running from them and endangering the lives of everyone around them. if i happen to be in the right place at the right time to do something about it - i will.

My Uncle is a cop, and he deals with shitbricks all day long. I only wish there were more people like you to help him out trying to catch assholes who deserve to go to jail.

Hey jon maybe that van was full of anthrax, or maybe the driver was on his way to kill somebody and our fellow 3si'er did a brave thing and helped out the situation. If everyone in the world had your warped views then there would be no such thing as chivalry or anybody with a conscious. If you don't agree with what he did, fine but don't talk to the guy like an asshole. Get a badge or stay the fuck out of the way? Hey get some balls or get the fuck off the thread. You were so rude to him for nothing so now im returning the favor. Don't be a dick, your post was rude and overboard, Valeru good job helping out our law enforcement and do it again if the situation comes up.
