Yup, I got rolled on the way to Forbidden Fantasy.
Let me explain what happened this time. I had gotten ZERO sleep the night before (technically morning of) the FFF Show, as I was super pressed for time getting back from the mountains. To make matters worse, this happened to be the night that we sprung forward for Daylight Savings, losing an hour. I jumped in my truck around 3:45AM (4:45AM if you take into account the time change), planning on literally crossing the street to meet my brother and grab some cash from the ATM, for the entry fee. Legit, right? As I was about to leave my ally, I looked to my left and saw a cop just chillin' in the "driveway" next to me. In my estimation, he had no business being there, backed into a drive that led to some dumpsters and nothing more. It was almost as if....he was waiting for ME.
Instantly I knew what was going to happen. Mr. Police, myself, and my babygirl truck, in the middle of the night, noone else in sight. So, I pulled the oh-I-have-to-check-my-cell-phone move, pausing to give him a chance to pull out of his drive first. Nope, didn't work. Now we were both just sitting there.
So I slowly pulled out, dragging bumper slightly. Shoot who really checks ride height when you're crossing the street? Then came the spotlight, followed by him pulling out behind me. Crossing the street, I dragged on the first dip. (Great, we're really on a roll now!) So I grab my switch box and aired up the back a little, with my slow setting; might as well! I knew I was already getting rolled, and the second dip was bigger than the first.
So I pulled into the bank driveway, which was my true destination. BUT, as we all know, that was also the green light for the cop to flick on his lights. It looked like I was either avoiding him by pulling into a parking lot, or robbing the bank. I mean, doesn't every mini trucker need to hit up an ATM at 4AM? Hahaha. So we went through the normal routine. When asked why I thought I was being pulled over, all I knew was that there was no reason why I WOULDN'T get pulled over. Expired registration tags? (That's what I would have gone for, if I were him.) Air ride? Looking shady?
The reason turned out to be modified exhaust, and no, I didn't get a ticket. I showed him a business card, and told him where I was going. When asked if I had PS2 because of the controller on my seat, I simply replied it was the controller for my air ride. Cops aren't stupid.
