Sometimes you can't save them from themselves
Could someome serious try any harder to get arrested? The cop was trying NOT to have to take this skank to jail, but she wasn't having any of it. Jack Kent Cooke just did a 360 in his grave. Why is it that sometimes people won't listen when we as cops are trying to provide good, free legal advice? "Sir/Ma'am, you're drunk...don't drive away or you'll go to jail. Why don't I call you a cab?" I've personally said that one at least 3 or 4 times, only to have to arrest the person 5 minutes later as I sat in my car around the corner wrapping up my paperwork and they drive past. "I told you not to drive tonight? Are you retarded?" Then they actually have the gall to get angry when you cuff them up.
Daughter of late multimillionaire arrested
By Jillian Jorgensen
Globe Correspondent / June 28, 2008
Boston police officers might not have known who Jacqueline Kent Cooke's father was when they arrested her yesterday morning, but they said they did know she ignored their repeated warnings and committed a crime.
Cooke, 20, of Dallas was charged with operating under the influence and operating without a license after she started her car despite the officers' warnings, police said in a statement.
When she was being booked, Cooke asked the officers whether they knew who her father was. She then told them he was Jack Kent Cooke, the late multimillionaire and former owner of the Washington Redskins, Los Angeles Lakers, and Los Angeles Kings, and said she would have the officers' badges because "$1 billion goes a long way," police said.
Officers patrolling the South End had seen Cooke and another woman quickly leaving the South Street Diner about 5:15, with a waitress following closely behind, police said. The waitress told police the women had not paid. Cooke and the woman told police they had forgotten about the bill, and then went inside to pay.
While the women were paying, the officers saw car keys for a BMW fall onto the counter, and since both women appeared to be intoxicated, asked whether they had driven to the diner. The women said they had not driven, and when police asked whether a BMW parked nearby belonged to them, they said it did not.
Minutes later, officers saw the two women walk to the car. They approached them again, asking whether they had the keys. One of the women said she gave the keys to her brother, who would take them home, according to the statement. Officers suggested the women take a taxi home, but they walked away, police said.
The pair returned to the car 10 minutes later and told the officers that it was useless for them to keep watching because they could not stop them from driving home, police said. The officers again suggested a taxi.
Then, police said, one of the women stepped into the street, lifted her skirt, and exposed her buttocks to the officers. The women got into the car at 5:40 a.m. and, despite warnings from the officers, started the engine, leading to Cooke's arrest, police said. She pleaded not guilty to charges of driving under the influence and driving without a license in Boston Municipal Court yesterday.
"The arresting officer was really trying to save her from herself . . . and potentially other innocents who would be sharing the road with her," said Jake Wark, a spokesman for the Suffolk district attorney's office.
Attempts to reach Cooke last night were unsuccessful. The lawyer who represented her, Emily Karstetter, did not return a message left at her office last night.

A billion going straight to her lawyers at this rate. Sounds like she has the Paris Hilton disease.

A very, very long (and funny...but my personal "statute of limitations" hasn't run out, so I'll have to wait 3 years to tell the whole thing) story short, I nearly got hooked for public intox a couple of years ago in Baltimore on vacation. NEARLY. Why didn't I go?
OFFICER: "You'd better get your friend's and your asses in that cab, get the fuck outta here and don't let him leave the hotel. ASAP!"
ME: "Yes sir."
I have this conversation with my brother a lot...when people are contacted by the police for any kind of violation (speeding, exp. tag, public intox), why don't some of them realize that if you're nice, courteous and respectful, the worst that can happen is you get a ticket, but the best that can happen is NOT getting a ticket. If you're a prick, however, the best that can happen is a ticket. The worst? Depends on how big of a dick you are. I've had lots of people "nice" their way into a warning. I've also had lots of people "dick" their way into tickets and jail.

The bucket-mouth in the car story. Navy buddy and I crossed from Reynosa MX to Mc Allen TX after dinner and some bubbly. My friend's family was well known in the area, both sides of the border. Mutual courtesy and good manners were exchanged. On this night we got a message to pick up his little brother at the Mexican Customs, and take him home to the US side. Seems like the drunk little shit (little brother) got in a beef with a parking lot security officer (off duty Reynosa officer) at "Boys Town". He got the courtesy of a ride to the border.
We picked him up and my friend apologized to, and thanked the Mexican Customs Officers. Crossed the Rio Grande and stopped on the US side. The US Customs Officer asked if we had anything to declare, we said "no-sir", and our USN active duty ID was good to go. Then little brother's drunken voice shouts from the back seat "declare? hell yes, you dumfuck, a sore dick and I gotta piss". With that we went to secondary inspection and that MGB was dismantled. My buddy and I took a cab and little brother was booked for urinating in public/drunk/disorderly. Their father let little brother stay in jail, and he couldnt come home till his older brother's tow bill was paid and it was reassembled.Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.-- Anonymous

Closest I came was at 21 years old, with a 20 year old roomate, both of us trying to sneak beer into a bar. I got the, "we could take you in right now for contributing to the delinquency of a minor." Can't imagine why they didn't, save for it being a busy college bar night and me being about as polite as can be without being patronizing.--

Once I stopped the CHP Commissioner's EX wife as she was driving 5 of her friends somewhere at 40 in a 25 when I went up to her window she said "young man do you realize who I am?" I couldnt help it I told her "No madam, Do you realize who I am?" She said no and I replied "I'm the officer who is going to cite you for 40 in a 25, license please". The commissioner heard about it and busted a gut laughing.

I was working a part time at a bar one night and I knew this drunk Mexican was going to try and drive home. I even offered to buy his cab ride home. Because it was closing, and I wanted to go home rather than do a DUI report.
The idiot still tried to drive home. Face it, some people were destined to serve as an example to others."If everyone is thinking alike, then someone isn't thinking." -Gen. George S. Patton

Older brother came home to a strange car in his driveway. He recognized it as belonging to the incredibly unpleasant (read: SuperBitch) neighbor. Not wanting to go knocking on her door and getting cussed out for his trouble, he called the local boys to come check things out. Come to find out, she'd been cutting her grass and parked her car in my brother's driveway to get it out of the way. I guess she felt entitled to using his property as her alternate parking lot, what a sweetheart. When the officers went to her door though, she was drunker than a warf rat. They explained to her that she had two options: she could either ask my brother very, very nicely if she could leave her car there till the morning, or she could move it. If she moved it, she'd be immediately hooked up for DUI. They explained that it would be in her best interest to be nice for once in her stuck-up life, as if he decided that he didn't want it there, he could have it removed at her expense. Not sure if that part is *entirely* true, but she managed to drag up some civility (barely, and it probably made her sick to do so) and the officers let her know that she needed to be nicer all around to her neighbors.
Every so often, someone will manage to get it through their thick skulls that the officers are trying to help them. It just makes me wonder about people who get an attitude with the cops who would cut them a break.
