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.
A Good Enough Lesson on Its Own
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.
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.
At Least She Wasn't Armed
Well, no wonder she went out drinking. Losing an arm is never easy. The police officer here had to display some quick thinking to make sure she was properly shackled, and from our research, it appears that this is how you are actually supposed to cuff amputees, at least in the military police.
Well, think about it – how else are you supposed to do it? It wouldn't be safe to attach the suspect to the inside of a cruiser. In the case of an accident, it would be a mess.
If you're the kind of person who is more than willing to show off your fandom each and every day, there are some extra rules that you need to follow, including not wearing a mask while driving. You have to be able to see and hear everything around you.
The next time you're headed to a convention, remember this and you might not only save yourself the trouble of a ticket, but you might also not get into an accident. This cop was willing to let this Star Wars fan go without a ticket, but you might not always be that lucky.
