This is a question The Police II

Enzyme asks: Have you ever been arrested? Been thrown down the stairs by the West Midlands Serious Crime Squad, with hi-LAR-ious consequences? Or maybe you're a member of the police force with chortlesome anecdotes about particularly stupid people you've encountered.
Do tell.

Back when I was a student.
It was around 2am, I couldn't sleep, and I had run out of cigs. Not being able to drive I had the option of waiting until the morning to get a smoke or walking 3 or 4 miles to get to the local 24hr Tescos. I make it down ok and got my cigs and a few late night snacks. I start walking back when I see a car pass me, then it comes back down the road a few minutes later. Next thing I know I see a car slowly approach me from behind. I'm not in a very good part of town. So my mind starts racing, where can I run, what do I have as a weapon. I figured I couldn't really run anywhere he couldn't drive quicker and the only thing I had for a weapon was a crunchy bar and a bag of crisps, not much good. Then I noticed the driver had his window open and was showing me something. It was his hat. More specifically his policemans hat. Thankfully he was looking for someone in that area and wanted to know if I had seen them, which I hadn't.

When he drove off I realised the only ID he had shown me was his helmet and then he was gone.

...So you were in a dodgy part of town when a strange man wound his car window down and flashed you his helmet?
I'd call the police if I were you.

this would never happen in the States and I'll tell ya why-none of us would be able to stir ourselves to walk 4 WHOLE miles at night just to get cigarettes.

and back when I was a student it would have been a case of combing every ashtray in the house, then reaching for the rizla...
the worst thing about that is I was never more than a mile from an all-night garage. And if you try to tell that to kids today... they'll call you a pikey cunt.

Was it his flesh colored helmet little boy?
