The best part about this is he had no other option than to call the police himself. “Super drunk” isn’t a medical term, so it’s hard to tell if he was still sauced by the time the police arrived or not, but after several hours of hanging by the fence, we bet he was feeling the hangover.
Nice of the cops to just let him go. We have a pretty good bet that he learned his lesson. Plus, if he wasn’t drunk anymore, what were they going to do? Charge him for getting stuck on a fence? That isn’t a law even in the strictest counties.
She Actually Did the Right Thing
Being drunk out in public is a common way for people to get in trouble with the law, but at least this woman wasn't trying to drive home.
She just wanted a ride home from a cab, but just so happened to find a campus officer. What else was he supposed to do? Not drive the drunk woman home? Well, that's exactly what he did. It's one of those fun, simple stories that can be told and retold for laughter as the years pass by.
Let's Just Both Forget About This
There are few things more nerve-wracking than having to sit in your car and wait for the highway patrol to saunter up to your driver-side window. But the cop and woman involved in this story got something way worse than a speeding ticket or another day on the job.
The woman avoided having to pay out, and both of them got a story that we're sure has been told over and over, with embellishments that get added on as time goes on. At least when the driver tells it, anyway. We're sure the cop doesn't want it to go on any longer than it has to.
Well, Sort Of
Look, we don't know. We don't know why anybody would want to do this. Skateboarding, as a rule, is something that is pretty dangerous, so if you're going about without any protective gear, you're risking your life and a limb. And quite a bit more, if you're this kid.
The story is a perfect bit of miscommunication, but we wonder why the cop asked that specific question. It's perhaps that it was supposed to be a joke from the very beginning, or it might have been a real question that the cop needed to know. We don't know, maybe there are rules about learning all the information before going looking for a naked skateboarder.
Just a Little Mix up Here
If you're wondering, the original story doesn't actually say “butt.” It says something very similar, but not exactly the same. After a long car chase and the potential for plenty of violence, you'd probably get your words mixed up, too.
On the other hand, we're sure that the criminal in question got the gist of the message, and stuck the appropriate body part high. Maybe after a few seconds of confusion, but it's hard to not acquiesce when a police officer is cornering you, after having chased you for who knows how long.
