An email is going viral from a Fort Worth, Texas resident named Charlie G. In the email, Charlie recounts a hilarious story about the way a police officer responded to a lawyer who was defending a clearly-guilty client. The story below is sure to bring a smile to your face, just as it did for us!
A motorcycle officer stops a man for running a red light. The guy is a real jerk and comes running back to the motor officer. The violator demands to know why he is being harassed by the ‘Gestapo.’ So the officer calmly tells him of the red light violation. The motorist instantly goes on a tirade, questioning the officer’s ancestry, sexual orientation, etc., in rather explicit terms. The officer, being a professional, takes it all in stride.
The tirade goes on without the cop saying anything. When he gets done with writing the citation he puts an “AH” in the lower right corner of the narrative portion of the citation. He then hands it to the violator for his signature.
The guy signs the cite angrily, tearing the paper, and when presented his copy points to the “AH” and demands to know what it stands for. The officer then removes his mirror sunglasses, get in the middle of the guys face and say, “That’s so when we go to court, I’ll remember you’re an Asshole!”
Three months later they are in court. The violator has such a bad record he’s about to lose his license and has hired an attorney to represent him. On the stand the officer testifies to seeing the man run the red light. Under cross examination the defense attorney asks: “Officer is this a reasonable facsimile of the citation you issued my client?”
Officer responds: “Yes sir, this is the defendants copy, his signature and mine, same number at the top. ”
Attorney: “Officer, is there any particular marking or notation on this citation you don’t normally make?”
Officer: “Yes sir, in the lower right corner of the narrative there is an ‘AH’, underlined.
Attorney: “What does the AH stand for, officer?”
Officer: “‘Aggressive” and ‘Hostile’, Sir”
Attorney: “‘Aggressive’ and ‘Hostile’”
Officer: “Yes Sir.”
Attorney: “Officer, are you sure it doesn’t stand for Asshole?”
Officer: “Well Sir, you know your client better than I do!”
LOL! How funny is that?!
