Ok, I am an LEO in Illinois, and while on patrol tonight, I had a new one thrown at me.....Have you ever heard of this.


 


I pull a car over for speeding, 60 in a 40, and when I go to the driver and ask if there is a reason to be going this fast, this is what I got.


The female driver told me that she was speeding as a part of a bet.


She said she was playing a game, called, "Bed A Badge", and that they made bets on who could get pulled over and sleep with the officer, hence the name, "Bed A Badge".


I was curious if any other officer had heard this.


and YES, I wrote the lady her ticket, and while she was cussing me out, I told her maybe she would have better luck if she tried playing, "Jump the Judge".

I have never heard of this and hope never to.  "Jump a Judge"  awesome!  LOL


Rule 1) End the day in better condition than you started.

Rule 2) Be smarter, faster, stronger, tougher, meaner than any son of a bitch who tries to make you violate rule 1.

You know, this sounds like it is stupid, but I thank God every day for my dash cam for reasons just like this.


It is getting to where we as officers get accussed of so much every time we make a stop.


I saved the disk of this traffic stop just in case it does go to court instead of her paying the ticket.

I hope your digital recorder was on........... Her admission of guilt as stated along with her explanation should be admissible evidence.  I would love to see the look on her face when the recording is played in court.  Likewise, I hope no officer is fool enough to fall for this stunt.

Yes, I always have the recorder on when I make a stop, both audio and video.


I have it set up to where any time the emergency lights are activated, the recorders both come on automatically.


I have been an officer for 21 years in the Army, and 10 years as a civilian, and have had to go to court with the recordings, but I had never heard of this game until tonight.


I too pray that no Officers are fool enough to lose their career over something like this.


I know there are a lot of small departments that do not have dash cams as I have been in a couple of those departments, this can be a very scary thing.

 She and whoever bet her on this are innovators; they're trying out new forms of "Speed" Dating BA-DUM-TSH.  (I couldn't resist).  I did like the "Jump a Judge" bit though.

Thanks for this... omg, "Jump the Judge".... priceless!  As far as the new game, it's just a twist on the old one really. 

You guys stay safe and watch your 6!!!

OMG that was a PERFECT reply !!! And no I've never heard it called Bed a Badge but there are lots of women out there who think that is the way to get out of a ticket. Good job and stay safe !!!
