Thumbs up Just got pulled over - Cop called my car "The beast"

So I was just driving home from dinner with a friend, we pulled up to a light under a bridge and I decided to launch the jeep with traction control off at around 2K. AS soon as I fly through the intersection, a notice the car behind me was a cop with those low profile LED lights. I just bow my head, pull over and shut the jeep off before he hits the lights. He comes over, tells me he pulled me over for exhibition of speed,checks my registration and license, comes back and says "I know this thing is a beast and has a lot of power but try to slow down.. have a good one." SRT love right there. 4th time pulled over in the srt, 0 tickets.

Last year someone mentioned on here about a prius tearing up their license plate or something along those lines, well sure enough, that same day I read that, I was driving with two prius's next to me, I missed my turn so I speed up a bit, got in the turn lanes, and u-turned back on the road but noticed this prius was on my ass.. follows me, and as soon as I hit the street, he pulls down his visors, hidden leds, walks over with his buddy. UNDERCOVER COPS, wearing street clothes, badge around the neck and pistols under their flannel shirt. After a pep-talk and telling me he pulled me over for trying to race him, tells me" I bet you didnt see that coming", saw my fire academy shirt, he let me go.. WTF hahaha I guess there are nice cops out there

The second story reminds me of the movie "The Other Guys". Hopefully those cops didn't loose their Prius to a "soup kitchen".

Cool stories. I've been let off a couple times as well

Haha, Dirty mike and the boys. Yeah, something about those tampon on wheels. Prius and mini van drivers are pretty crazy.

I think there are a lot of cops who are car guys and get it. As long as your polite and whatnot, usually they are pretty cool. Two times tho, your just lucky.

Hahahahah, i did the same exact thing....at a red light, ripped it out of the hole, unmarked cop car was directly behind me!

Pulls me over, yelled at me and let me go....he was off duty and said he was on his way to the gun range.
