In most United States cities there is a policy of checking on any stalled vehicle on the highway when tempatures drop to single digits or below. About 3am on a very cold Montana morning State Trooper Allan Nixon #658 responded to a call that there was a car off the shoulder of the road outside Great Falls, Montana. He located the car stuck in deep snow and with the engine still running. 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 bottle of vodka in 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 gear into 'drive' and hit the gas.


The car's speedometer was showing 20-30-40 mph and then 50 mph, but it was still stuck in the snow wheels spinning. Trooper Nixon having a sense of humor, began running in place next to the speeding (but stationary) car. The driver was totally freaked, thinking the trooper was actually keeping up with him. This goes on for 30 seconds, then the trooper yelled "PULL OVER!!".


The man nodded, turned his wheel and stopped the engine. Needless to say the man from North Dakota was arrested and is probably still shaking his head over the state trooper in Montana who could run 50 mph.


Who says troopers dont have a sense of humor?

I like it! It is the maple syrup drinking troopers that come up with stunts like that.  The not-so-inventive troopers like me just get to benifit from their imaginative minds.

hahahaha.. I think those stories are all over the country!  I know we have had guys saying similar things... course the running joke is if your partner is silly enough to fall asleep.. as you pull in behind a disabled vehicle with a flat.. you send your partner out saying, "Hey wake up, I  just got this guy for over 90mph.."  ahhh yeah... or, of course, when you know a training unit is on a stop, that begs the obligatory unit to scream by and slam on the brakes... just because!!!  Not that I..cough, cough, would EVER do ANYTHING like that.. heavens...

Done something similar to that about 3 years ago, except the rookie unit was running radar on I-40 and we didnt hit our brakes. lol
