There’s something to be said for knowing how far to push something. In fact, it’s almost an artform if you know exactly when too much is too much.
For example, this weekend my friend and I parked in a garage in Philly and they blatantly overcharged us by screwing up the time we had come in the previous day and charging us an extra $17.
My friend, realizing that there really was no way that he’d get out of spending the extra money short of calling the police, proceeded to scream on the phone to the owner of the parking garage (after the attendent was forced to call him on a cell phone) that he’d “Sue you so effing hard that I’ll own this parking garage and you can take my $17 and buy yourself the dirtiest, diseased riddled….”
Well, you get the idea.
That may have been too far, but it was a hell of a lot of fun to watch.
A 23-year-old Pen Argyl man, upset that the driver of a vehicle in which he was a passenger was taken into custody on suspicion of drunken driving, challenged Pennsylvania State Police and was arrested himself, police report this morning in a news release.
Brandan T. Sterner (FACEBOOK PROFILE) got out of the passenger side of the vehicle after being ordered to stay inside about 3 a.m. Saturday on the Route 33 exit ramp in Stockertown, police said. He then flicked a lit cigarette at a police cruiser, police said.
He refused to call someone for a ride and refused to let a tow truck driver transport him from the highway, police said. He then “aggressively approached” the troopers and said he “wasn’t going anywhere without his buddy,” who was in the back of the cruiser, police said.
Sterner said he wanted to be arrested, made a motion as if he were going to strike a trooper and was “immediately and forcefully” arrested.
He refused medical treatment for a head wound, police said. He was cited with disorderly conduct, public drunkenness and scattering rubbish, and released, police said. Charges are pending with District Judge John Capobianco in Nazareth, police said. SOURCE: The Express-Times
Ahh, nothing like getting yourself arrested SOLELY because you’re a douchebag. Couldn’t just sit there and head home, could ya? Had to prove to the cop, who couldn’t care less, btw, that you’re just SOO cool and don’t respect his authority. You TOTALLY showed him how awesome you are by having to now pay fines. But, whatever, you completely showed him who is cooler.
I mean, he’s just a cop with a job, you’re a guy who flicked a cigarette and wears awesome clothes that guys in the WWE enjoy.
Now, the best approach would be to say, “Wow, I really screwed up on this one, I’m going to have to reevaluate my behavior.” But, no, you know this guy was arrested because it was the cop’s fault or something.
You’re awesome. PURE awesome.
He also decided to proclaim his almost innocence on The Express-Time’s comments section under his own story.
