This came from a guy I work with and I just had to put this up here. He's got a brother who lives in a rural community. Small town. Small town folk, small town ways. As a veteran of small town life, one thing I can tell you is that small towns know everybody. This means that, if you do something wrong, the fuzz knows to watch for you.
This guy had his license suspended, meaning it was illegal for him to drive a car. Naturally, the police knew his car and knew to watch for it. One night, they got lucky. The guy was out for a drive. They hit the lights, and a merry chase through town ensued.
The guy knows he needs an escape route quick, so he shakes the cops long enough to dart into a large, well-filled parking lot. He finds a spot, pulls in, kills the engine, and ducks down in the front seat.
Eventually, he hears, "Sir, please exit the vehicle."
He doesn't move.
Then he hears, "Sir, if you don't want to be arrested, take your foot off the brake."
He got pinched.
