Portland Police Pull Over Delorean-Driver Excuse a Classic
Portland Police pulled over this Delorean over the weekend. You know, typical traffic stop. Except it was a Delorean, and we're guessing there are not too many of THOSE in Maine. I mean, how well do you think they handle in the snow?
What makes this routine traffic stop hilarious was the excuse from the driver.
According to the PPD Facebook page:
"Officer Abbott was on patrol and was able to stop this speeder before he got away. The alleged speeder's excuse was that he needed to go back to 1955 to make his parents part of the popular crowd....Not sure if that will hold up in traffic court. #drivesafely
The PPD also made this fantastic meme:
We just hope Einstein the Dog is OK.
It brings up a really interesting (and rather serious) topic about what people say when they get arrested. Great article in today's Boston Globe called "Arresting Words."
