CHP saw me speeding, zig-zagging through traffic. I never saw him, of course. Anyway I exited the freeway and was driving on a city street when I saw a cruiser coming up on me fast, lights on. Pulled me over.

Said he was tailing me at 120MPH and not gaining. Said he had to go faster than that to catch me.

This is what he said, verbatim: "I don't know what the FUCK you guys in your M-cars are doing out here. It's like you have the M-badge so you think it's the Autobahn. What the hell were you doing?"

I responded saying someone was screwing with me and threw a spray-paint can at my car a few exits back.

CHP: "Bullshit! And in a car like this, you had plenty of time to cool your jets. Right now I can put you in jail, put your car in car jail, but I'm not going to do that. I don't know why, but I'm not going do that. But if I ever see you driving this area like that again, I'm hauling your ass off to jail. I'll be looking for you."

That was it. He let me go. I couldn't believe it. I'm not bullshitting. This was about two years ago.
