    Pissed is an understatement. Although I think her priorities are a little screwed up considering she was wishing he had died. Where did she tell him to go? Back to Pennsylvania?

    I thought leaving the scene of an accident was a crime. They said they couldn't get him for drunk driving but he admitted to the crash.

    The drunk driving was weird. They said they couldn't charge him since no one saw him wreck, but in the same breath they said he would be charged with the destruction of the property. I don't get it.

    The other story, about the guy that assaulted the 16 year old, I thought was total BS. I think that whole family is lying just to get the guy arrested. She had a mark on her chest that could've been from anyone. Their whole demeanor was just shady, like they were enjoying it a little too much.

    In court, he could claim he dodged a squirrel and there would be no one that would be able to refute that assertion.
    I don't think they 'charged' him with anything. They didn't even write him a ticket.
    The one cop mentioned he will be getting a bill for the cost of the property, but that was it. Now it's just a civil matter between the city and the driver.

    I was thinking the same thing. Especially when the suspect claimed that the girls were always making stuff up to get him in trouble.

    He had no shirt. On Cops that means he's guilty.

    I totally agree with both of these statements.

    In the first case:

    • The guy admitted he was driving.
    • They should have done a field sobriety test or a breathalizer on him.
    • They had eyewitnesses who saw him hit the light pole. After all, the cop recognised him from an eyewitness description that went out over the radio,

    In any other case I've ever seen, admission that he was driving or an eyewitness willing to sign a statement is enough to arrest him (the conviction is then up to the trial). The COP doesn't need to be an eyewitness.

    In the second one: Yeah, the girls struck me as beaytches who would absolutely lie to get the guy in trouble. They came over to HIS house and he was simply trying to get them to leave. The girls were trespassing!

    The cop probably had to take the guy due to the domestic violence laws in the state. Even the cop didn't seem to be buying the story, as he told the guy he would personally make sure the guy would make it to work the next morning. The charge, should he actually get one, should never hold up in court.

    Domestic violence laws pertain to people who are members of the same household, who live under the same roof.

    In this case, the young girls came over to the guys house and were on his porch taunting and harassing him. The girls claim he grabbed the 15 year old and she had a slight mark on her neck / upper chest, near the collar bone.

    Whether he actually laid a hand on her or not, the girls were obviously the instigators of the whole thing, coming over to his house and taunting him while he was minding his own business. They were clearly absolutely giddy that they caused him to get arrested. It was a game to them. The entire thing was orchestrated by them.

    I do hope the cop followed through with his promise to make sure the guy made it to work the next morning, and hopefully helped him get the charges dropped.

    If that's what happened, then the girls should get charged with something. Making a false report maybe?

    Unless they admit it, there's no way to prove it didn't happen, either.

    Unfortunately, you're right. So even if the charges don't go anywhere, it'll always be on his record. Doesn't seem fair.

    Some really compelling stuff tonight. The guy tripping on meth, the genius who decided to run not once but twice (the second time while in cuffs!), and the fake robbery (she didn't put all that much effort into it...did she really think they wouldn't watch the tapes or look in her car?) were all great.

    The guy tweaking was really unpredictable, taking him to the ground quick was a good move. Too bad he didn't try to run, we would of had some taser action.

    It's always a good laugh when some rocket scientist tries to run in cuffs.

    On the Vegas Vice portions, is it just me, or did that female vice cop resemble Angie Dickinson (from some angles) during her Police Woman days?

    Since this season began, there's a 2 second blip in the intro where they show the "Ho" with the long curly black hair -from the back only- in cuffs.

    Since this season began, when that shot blips up, I've turned to my wife and said, "dude". (As in, "that's a guy in drag".)

    Well, in this year's "Ho! Ho! Ho!" episode we get to see that person from the front and at length. "Not a dude!" I was genuinely surprised! And not only not a dude, but surprisingly -dare I even say- ... attractive ... for a teenage $20 whore.

    Note: I'm sure some of you zip through the theme song and have never seen the clip I referenced. Me, even with a TiVo, I just gotta hear that "Bad Boys" theme! :)
