The light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the stop line, even though he could have beaten the red light by continuing through the intersection.
The woman tailgating was furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration, as she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her mobile phone and her makeup.
As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up.
He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a holding cell.
After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects.
He said, ”I’m very sorry for arresting you. But you see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, giving the guy in front of you the finger, and swearing at him. I noticed the ‘What Would Jesus Do’ bumper sticker, the ‘Choose Life’ number plate holder, the ‘Follow Me to Sunday-School’ bumper sticker, and the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the boot lid, so naturally I assumed you had stolen the car.”
But there is still the matter of the mobile phone and the make-up!
