So there we are. SMZ, dn, geebutbut and myself, having a coffee at the poo poo house aka The Grind.
I'll cut to the chase.
We spotted a few police cars in a mad rush going north on Main. Pretty cool. We were just about finished and me being the nosy fucker that I am in a zero heat score mobile decide take a peek at what's happening, even though I was supposed to go south towards the gym.
I parked at the Chevron at Main and 12th, and walked east on 12th for half a block. There was this dark green/grey/brown (hard colour to describe really) 2000+ Pontiac Grand Am with like, 18 or 19 inch chrome ugly ass rims on it, sorrounded by about 4 cars, 2 of them K9 units. There were 3-4 other cars up and down the street, pretty much blocking it off, and an unmarked suburban. There was also a paddy wagon that had just pulled in.
VPD folks had their guns drawn. A white male was driving, and there was a brown guy in the back seat. I don't think anyone noticed me walking up there, I was pretty much in all black with bushes as siloutte to my exceptionally built, perfectly proportioned, male speciman of a body.
So they yell at the passenger to get out. He gets out, he's instructed to do this and that, slowly etc etc. and he is in custody.
Now they were yelling at the driver to get out of the car. Over, and over again they repeated this. But he didn't really move. FINALLY he decided that there wasn't really a way out of that situation. (Duh?) And he got out, followed instructions and was taken.
They still had their guns out when a K9 unit comes up and starts sniffing the trunk. The dog (COOL dog btw ) didn't really do much, just kind of looked at the officer and went "Hey,I dunno man, but it's cold out here, and my paws are wet and you my friend, didn't put on any deoderant today."
The other officers took the key out of the ignition (I bit more unlikely that it was a stolen car like I initially thought) and carefully, carefully opened the trunk of the car.
I thought that this might be a good time to scream. But I'm sure the police would kill me much sooner than the suspense of opening the trunk would.
They opened up, peeped inside and there was no one inside there.
They then searched the car and took the two perps away. One in the paddy wagon and the other in a car.
That was awesome.
Just thought I'd share. It's nice to realize when you see stuff like this that police just don't pull people over. They have to deal with this shizzle every dizzle, nizzles.
Then after that huge cup of coffee I went to the gym and freaked out on all the cardio equipment for just under an hour.
That was also, awesome.
