THIS WAS SENT TO ME BY MY VERY GOOD FRIEND MARYLOU FROM NEW JERSEY. I LAUGHED SO HARD READING THIS, I WANTED TO SHARE IT WITH YOU ALL. I HOPE IT GIVES YOU A LAUGH ALSO.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol Story
In most of the United States, there is a policy of checking on any stalled
vehicle on the highway when the temperatures drop down to single digits < BR>or below.
About 3 AM, one very cold morning, Trooper Allan Nixon #658 responded to
a call there was a car off the shoulder of the road outside Shattuck . He
located the car, stuck in deep snow, and with the engine still running.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
Pulling in behind the car with his emergency lights on, the Trooper walked
to the driver's door to find an older man passed out behind the wheel with
a nearly empty vodka bottle on the seat beside him.
The driver came awake when the Trooper tapped on the window. Seeing the
rotating lights in his rearview mirror, and the State Trooper standing next
to his car, the man panicked.
He jerked the gearshift into 'drive' and hit the gas. The car's speedometer
was showing 20-30-40 and then 50 mph, but it was still stuck in the snow,
Trooper Nixon, having a sense of humor, began running in place next to the
speeding, but still stationary car. The driver was totally freaked,
thinking the Trooper was actually keeping up with him. This goes on for
about 30 seconds, then the Trooper yelled at the man to 'Pull over!'</FON T>
The man obeyed, turned his wheel and stopped the engine.
Needless to say, the man from Dumas, <?XML:NAMESPACE PREFIX = U1 /><?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Texas was arrested, and is probably
still shaking his head over the State Trooper in Oklahoma who could run 50
miles per hour.
