Guns and no roses

You forget, just sometimes, that there’s a gun strapped to your side when your working the streets. You remember, immediately, when there’s a threat to your life. I was working one day when the sheriff’s department sent out a BOLO (be on the lookout) for a particular car with a certain plate. The department had a newly-issued warrant and wanted the suspect stopped and detained so they could serve him. Guess who found him? Yep. When I radioed into dispatch that I was about to pull him over, I was told to keep him there – the deputies would be there in 10 minutes or so. When I realized I was behind the car they wanted, I had to come up with a legal reason to stop him. It was a cheesy one, I admit – broken taillight or expired tag…but that’s all I needed. (tune in to tomorrow for the rest of the story)
