Most of us have gotten speeding tickets before, and it's usually not a pleasant experience. It's "Yes sir" and "No, sir" and "Thank you" while the officer is chastising us for whatever minor infraction we've incurred. All the while, you're thinking to yourself, "I was doing 8 mph over the speed limit. Shouldn't he be out chasing terrorists or something?"

So this video is for all of us who would have so very much enjoyed telling off the guy or gal about to make us pay potentially hundreds of dollars in fines and insurance costs just because we were in a little bit of a hurry to get to the house/work/that big sale at Autozone/etc. We held our tongues, took our punishment and probably avoided higher fines or, worse, jail time.

How the alleged offender in this video manages to keep his freedom is a complete mystery. That is one patient cop, and I hope he got a raise for putting up with this driver's degrading diatribe. The man's choice of adjectives earns it a NSFW, btw.

      LOL the best part was the officer making him pick the papers up. That's one smart officer.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Wow. If anyone ever needed a nightstick to the head...
      • 6 Years Ago
      I actually feel really bad for the officer in this one... :(

      That driver should have gotten more then a ticket.
      • 6 Years Ago
      wow that guy is PMSing all over $137. that's a pretty cheap ticket. I didn't have my seatbelt on once and it was $150 fine ( non droppable), over corrected and went in opposite lane (crossing yellow line $320). Still thats not alot of money but i guess he must broke. This almost makes me feel sorry for cops because I know if you do that in North Carolina they are locking your ass up. If your rude to a cop ( esp. state trooper) they will arrest you on the spot.

      They were both white so stop saying racial comments. If anyone did that * white black etc.* to 99% of cops * white black etc.* they would not have put up with it

      Welcome to 1996 Autoblog!

      What will the news be tomorrow? Introduction of the "new" Pontiac Fiero?
      • 6 Years Ago
      With the way the driver talks (high pitch voice and obscenities), I would want to burst out laughing. Anyone else and they probably would have gone to jail.

      And contrary to what your mothers and fathers have told you, race has NOTHING to do with it. BEHAVIOR as opposed to RACE has EVERYTHING to do with it.

      Contrary to what was posted above this video is from Maine. The accent is pretty thick if that wasn't evidence enough the cop is wearing the uni of Maine State Trooper. Keep an eye out if you're traveling in the area, they run everything from a Mustang to and F-150 in five or six different colors.
      If I had to guess where in Maine I would guess "The County" which is how we refer to the upper half of the state which is made of of "townships," none of which have police departments.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Yup, it was definitely Maine. I saw this video when I was in the police academy, and they didn't fuzz out any of the people or license plates.

        The instructors used it as a great example of remain calm in the face of abusive citizens, but they also faulted the trooper for his condescending tone when giving his instructions to the driver. They also had some interesting personal info on both involved parties, but there's no need to go into that just now. Bottom line, incidents like this make great training examples, from both sides. Don't think that the police don't review their own behavior when it's appropriate--they do.

        ps: I'm no longer involved in law enforcement. Just relating an observation from a past life.

      I'd like to commend the officer on acting like a Professional. Maybe Officer John Gardner from Utah Highway Patrol could ride along with him for lessons?

      The headline doesn't say "Breaking news, man tears a strip of a trooper for a speeding ticket"...so get over it.

      It's just an amusing video...

      So for all you posters saying "oh way to go AB, this is soo old"...and "c'mon this is from 1992", I say get a life.

      I swear, some people just blog to hear themselves talk.....Just read the blogs you want and skip the ones you don't like. Nobody wants to read your thoughts on how old sh!t is, and that you don't think it should be on AB...

      Maybe I'm the only one, but I actually feel sorry for the driver. He's obviously way out of line, but he must have some serious issues to respond like that.
      • 6 Years Ago
      A Mainer should know its not from the county, it's from near lincoln. Somewhere along route 6 or route 2 (east of lincoln) i'm guessing. they have pd's, sheriffs, and staties...it's not quite township country.
