WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah -A Utah driver rammed a sheriff’s patrol car on purpose and officers aren’t even upset. West Valley City police say a man posted an ad asking for a massage.

When he showed up at the appointed meeting place, instead of finding a woman police said a 21-year-old man hopped into the truck, flashed a gun and told the victim to drive.

Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Lt. Jason Johnson said the driver tried to stay calm but saw an opportunity to escape when he pulled up next to a sheriff’s deputy.

Johnson said the man hit the patrol car, jumped out of the truck and started yelling. Officers quickly arrested the gunman.

Johnson said a little damage to a vehicle that can be repaired is better than anyone getting hurt.

    Well I for one think this is hilarious. I mean, look at the irony. We've all heard about those massages with a happy ending, but hows that for an unhappy one. I bet when he got to lockup he could have got a massage if he asked politely.

    If his vehicle door wasn't locked and he allowed a 21 year old male to get in, I doubt he was there to meet a woman in the first place.
    This was no doubt a "M 4 M" encounter from the start. The "meeting a woman for a message" story he spun was certainly just to save him some embarrassment.

    He was just expecting to see the 21 year old flash a long barrel flesh gun...

    Lesson learned,,,, When you partake in risky activities, you're not always going to like the results that go along with such behavior,,,,

    Yes, the grammar in this article is atrocious.....but I'm also used to deciphering "Baby's Mama's Boo's ex-Girlfriend blah blah blah....", so I barely noticed it. I am ashamed of myself. Need to start reading some books again.

    Oh, and I'll bet the victim was driving a "Stickshift" on his way to the massage! Sorry, had to say it!

    When your massage goes bad it helps to be thinking quick.
