I love the show Cops. I could literally watch it for hours. And now that Spike TV has taken to airing entire days worth of it, I often do.
Some day, during one of these binges, I need to do my best to keep count of how many times somebody tosses away knives or guns or drugs in a bid to keep out of trouble, as if the fact that you’re attempting to outrun the police magically won’t count if those police can’t find anything on you once they inevitably tackle you straight to hell. But even if that was a thing, there’s still the issue that in the end, the cops always win. No matter where you throw whatever you’ve thrown, they’re eventually coming up with it. It might take a while, but somebody’s finding it.
And then there are cases like this one, where it finds them. Please tell me a Cops crew was riding along on this day, because the reactions would have been priceless.
As detailed in a Kissimmee Police Department report, cop Christopher Breuer sought to pull over a gold Acura around 2 AM yesterday after the vehicle
nearly slammed into his cruiser. Though Breuer activated his car’s overhead lights, the other vehicle, which carried two men, continued moving.
While shining a spotlight on the Acura, Breuer noted, “I saw the sun roof of the vehicle open.” Breuer slowed his car down since, “I knew the passenger was going to throw something out of the vehicle.”
Breuer then watched as the vehicle’s passenger stuck his right hand out of the sunroof. “At this time, I observed a clear bag come out of the sun roof and fly into the air. This same bag landed on the hood of my vehicle as I slowed down,” the cop reported.
The officer eventually caught up with the car in a parking lot, where driver Jose Vales proceeded to have none of pal and apparent expert marksman Luis Vazquez’s denials, quickly confirming him as the thrower.
Both were aimed in the direction of jail on a variety of drug-related charges.
