Weird interaction with the Police

So I'm driving around on Ft. Carson, CO, and get hit up by the base police. I'm thinking I'm gonna get in trouble for loud music or something, but oh no. To my surprise, all they want to do is ask questions about the Jeep. I tell him it's an SRT8, and he's like, "A what?" I explained it all to him and the guy was just freaking out. So I revved it for him, and the guy was all drooling. Made the day good after so much boredom at work. I love having a headturner.

Re: Weird interaction with the Police

HAH your text was even better since it showed up on the phone as "got stopped by ft carson police..." thought for sure they got you speeding or something, great twist though!

Great story Hopefully you gained some 'points' for the next time you actually get pulled over for doing something wrong.
