Can't vouch for the accuracy of this, but makes for a good 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 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.

    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, wheels spinning.

    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, "Pull over!"

    The man obeyed, turned his wheel and stopped the engine.

    Needless to say, the man from Dumas, Texas was arrested, and is probably still shaking
    his head over the State Trooper in Oklahoma who could run 50 miles per hour.

    Who says Troopers don't have a sense of humor?

    Enjoyed that story.
    If that was me behind the wheel I'd be "swearing like a trooper" if I thought the guy was running at that speed,lol.

    Sent the story to my brother, a small town cop. Speaking of which:

    The sheriff of a small town was also the town's animal Vet. One night the phone rang, and his wife answered.

    An agitated voice inquired, "Is your husband there?" "Do you require his services as a sheriff or as a vet?" the wife asked.

    "Both!" was the reply. "We can't get our dog's mouth open, and there's a burglar in it."

    Most officers do have a sense of humor....they have to, to cope with all the seriousness that also comes their way.

    I would not be surprised that it was true. Even if not, thanks for posting this one. Funny for sure.
