Saturday was not a good day to be driving a black Corvette in my neck of the woods.

It was a beautiful day, to be sure. I had to make a run out to school to use a computer to finish some homework because my version of Office at home doesn't have Access. I was about to jump in my truck, but decided that since it was so nice out I'd go ahead and take the car. As I'm finishing up my work, I overhear some guy talking to his mom on the phone about a murder that had taken place early in the morning in a bordering county. Before I left school, I checked out a news station's website to see if they had anything on it. They did. Turns out that a witness had identified the suspect to police and given them a description of the car he was driving, a 1988 black convertible Corvette, complete with the plate numbers. I wondered if anyone out there would mistake my car for this one and call 911 while I was heading home and then laughed at the notion, seeing as how my car is an '02 Z06.

Well, turns out someone made just that very mistake. And that person just happened to be driving a Sheriff's cruiser.

So here I am, driving down a multi-lane divided highway when I see a cruiser come racing up in a side lane and pull right behind me. My first thought was that this was one of my buddies messing with me. While I was out at school, I had checked my e-mail to find an invite from one of my friends to come to a big annual party. That buddy just happens to be a Major on the Sheriff's Department and commands the Operations Division, which includes motor patrol.

Now, this stretch of highway passes right in front of the Command Post and as I'm coming up on it, I see a whole lot of cruisers positioned to enter the roadway. Two cars pull out ahead of me and block the lanes while the rest of them pull behind the car tailing me. Then the lights come on.

At this point I'm still thinking it's my buddy. Granted, it's getting pretty elaborate, but I wouldn't put something like this past him. Anyway, I had pulled over onto the shoulder and was waiting for an officer to approach me. Didn't quite work out that way. I saw officers getting out of their cars, but they were staying behind their open doors. Some of them were getting their dogs out, others were busting out rifles, and the rest had their handguns drawn.

"Well...fuck," I thought.

Realizing this wasn't what I thought it was, I shut the car off and rolled down the windows. I heard a voice barking out "Turn off the car!" and hoped that he hadn't been saying that for very long. Per the barking voice's commands, I tossed the keys out the window, held my hands where they were clearly visible, opened the door using my right hand, exited slowly, remained facing away from said voice, took two sideways steps from the vehicle, and started walking backwards with my hands up.

As I was doing this last part, several things came to mind. I realized that police cars had not only blocked traffic in my direction of travel, but had shut down the opposite lanes as well. I thought, "wow...this is some white trash shit right here. I am that guy on COPS." Then at some point the movie My Cousin Vinny came to mind. Very good movie, by the way. "Did you just say...two YUTES?" Lol. Classic, but I digress. I also knew what the next step was going to be, and I really was not looking forward to it. I had a crazy idea that I might be able to tell the barking voice that it's difficult for be to kneel on account of several knee surgeries, but knew that wouldn't do me any good. I prepared to just suck it up and deal with it.

Sure enough, the next command was to kneel down, place my hands behind my back, and, here's what I wasn't expecting, cross my feet. Jesus H. Christ. The kneeling part was bad enough, but crossing my feet was brutal. Anyway, the barking voice was getting closer, announcing that he was going to place handcuffs on me. Well, I call him barking voice, but he wasn't so much barking anymore. His tone had subdued, but I'm still going to call him barking voice for the purposes of this story.

So, yeah. Barking voice places me in handcuffs and instructs me to stand up, adding that if I try anything stupid, they'll shoot me. I thought that was a bit over the top, personally, seeing as how I though everything had gone pretty smoothly up to this point. Of course, I'm also wondering what it is that they might consider "stupid" and it's at this point that I thought I might be able to inform barking voice of the condition of my knees and to please not consider an inadvertent stumble on my part to be a shootable offense. He said he understood (although his tone of voice suggested that he was merely placating me) and I proceeded to get up rather gingerly.

Once I was on my feet the first question I was asked was for my name, which I gave. The standard "any weapons on you or in your car" was asked, to which I responded "no," and a pat-down commenced. I told them they would find the keys to my work truck, my personal truck, my cell phone, and a flash drive in my pockets, and that my license was in my wallet in the passenger's seat. Barking voice then asked me if I knew what was going on. Answering "no," he then informed me that someone driving a car like mine had just committed murder. "Holy shit!" I thought. "Two murders in the same day...both suspects in black Corvettes...what are the odds?"

Some other deputy had located my license and run it and I heard barking voice ask if anything had come back on it. Another voice replied "no locals," but barking voice wanted what I assumed was a national search on it as well. At this point I told barking voice that they wouldn't find anything and that [Operations Division Commander's name], [Chief Deputy's name], and [Sheriff's name] all knew me and could verify who I was. I thought now was as good a time as any to start dropping as many names as I could.

Everything came back clear, but as one final check, another deputy came up with my license to see if the photo matched my ugly mug. It did, so they let me out of the cuffs and by this point their weapons were lowered and traffic was let through. Barking voice asked me if I understood what had just happened and why they did what they did. I said I understood and then he asked me if I wanted him to give me his card so that I could contact his supervisors if I had any complaints about what happened.

I told him "nah, that's okay. I'll be seeing [Operations Division Commander's first name] tonight anyway."

You'd have thought a puppy had died by the look on his face.

And as it turns out, there wasn't a second murder like I had thought. It was the same one. When I got home, I sent an e-mail to the Sheriff which read:

"FYI, you might want to see about getting some training for your deputies on the differences between the Corvette body styles by generation, particularly between 4th and 5th."

The bright side of this whole escapade was at the time the deputy stopped me, I was doing 5 over. No ticket = win.

We then were asked to describe the man. 90% of the people got the color wrong, some people thought he was black, some thought he was mexican, others thought it may have been a woman.

Wow, that beats the time I evaded arrest from about 20 OPPD cops and a helicopter.

I grew up driving a Triumph Spitfire and I got pulled over a lot. One time, the cop walks up and starts asking me questions. After a few questions, he looked at me and said, "You talk funny." I responded, "Well, sorry, but I was born in England." He then went on a rant about Lamar Avenue not being "the Autobahn." I stifled a few giggles and took my ticket.

So let me get this straight........

You overheard something about a murder in the area?

You checked the news to confirm, they informed you the type of vehicle, color, model etc?

(At this point I would assume you knew Cops were in pursuit in the area to try and find the suspect).

So you had a choice on which vehicle to take across town to go to school to do your thing. You could have chosen the pickup.....instead you chose the vehicle that is pretty close in matching the one the cops are after?

And before you make the argument that the vehicle models aren't close to being the same....let me remind you that,

A: Most people don't own corvettes, I'm probably wrong but I'd guestimate that maybe 1 in 50,000 car owners own a corvette. That ratio then probably becomes smaller in a sense that not all corvettes that are owned are black. Just saying....cops were doing their jobs. They saw a vehicle that matched the suspect's veh and they took action.

So here's the question I ask to you......
Why would you purposely want to get ****ed with by the police? If you didn't think they would just pass by and see your vehicle and not think anything of it after this whole thing's been on the news.......then I must say "Sir you're a dumbass!!!"

I mean if there was a murder at a corner gas station one evening and I saw it on the news at 9pm, suspect was identified as a tall while male with a red hoodie on and was still at large.......I'm not going to go put on my red hoodie and head out to the nearest gas station and fill my car up with gas, go buy a case of beer or what have you.

So either you're extremely stupid, and your decision making REALLY needs to be questioned.

OR

You were looking for trouble to begin with and wanted cops to **** with you or you wanted to **** with them.

Either way it's stupid.

I'm usually pretty pro-cop, but c'mon - expecting them to know a little more about what it is they're looking for is hardly asking too much.

Should they really just be driving around and pulling guns on every black corvette tooling around town? It's not like a black 'vette is the most uncommon thing in the world.

A brief detention and license check I have no problem with. But stopping traffic and using several cruisers and cops w/ guns drawn just because you saw a black vette is wholly unreasonable. That situation was one skittish cop away from getting somebody needlessly shot all because a local Sheriff decided to go all commando without any significant fact checking.

That was a needlessly explosive situation. In that kind of environment it would not have taken much to get someone hurt badly. All because a guy was driving a fairly common car?

Nope, not gonna defend that one.

I found out about the murder and the vehicle description after I had been out and about town for several hours. After speaking to one of the deputies who was on-scene and also at the party I went to Saturday night (who, by the way, told me this was the first time he had ever been involved with a fugitive stop and been drinking beers with the subject six hours later) said that they thought there was a good chance he'd stop by his old workplace (where he had just been fired from). To get to that business, he would have been traveling the same direction on the same highway. I live about four miles from the place. He also said that dispatch had only given a description of a black Corvette. The deputy saw a black Corvette heading down a stretch of highway they thought he'd be on. I don't blame him one bit.

The suspect killed the new boyfriend of his recent ex (girlfriend or wife, I'm not sure). Went to his house and shot him six times in the back of the head while he was asleep. He beat the crap out of her, too, but didn't kill her. She was the witness. Told the police who had done it and what he was driving.

At the party that night I told the deputy who had been there that apparently it doesn't do much good knowing and being friends with the top brass. I said it's evident that I need to get to know the road dogs. He said when it was going down, he started telling people I wasn't the guy. He said, "I'm watching this guy do everything to a tee and thinking 'this is too much like a training exercise. We've got the wrong dude. Bad guys don't cooperate like this'"

He also said I was the largest man he'd ever seen get out of a Corvette and hoped I didn't decide to hurt anyone.

Also, my car has State Police Memorial plates. The extra fee goes to a fund to help the families of fallen troopers. I was telling everyone that when I got the plates I wasn't thinking it would get me out of any tickets, but figured if I did ever get pulled over, I would hope that the cop might keep in mind that I'm not a complete asshole. I told them that afternoon had blown that theory clear out of the water. They laughed. The one deputy told me that when one of the other guys saw my plate and before they ran my ID, he asked if anyone could get that plate or did they just do a fugitive stop on a State Trooper. I laughed.

Throughout the whole ordeal, barking voice maintained a high level of professionalism and in my e-mail to the Sheriff I even commended his guys on their performance. I know that they had to be amped up and ready to get it on if need be, but everyone stayed calm and controlled. There was no swearing, no yelling (other than barking voice being loud out of necessity), no rough treatment while I was detained, and, most importantly, no tasering (although the Sheriff did joke with me on that last point).

All in all, no harm...no foul. And I've got a kickass story to tell.

ROFL

...I'm a Ford guy myself, but we all should know what a 4th generation and 5th generation corvette looks like with our eyes closed.

I gotta say, that's a hell of a waste of tax money right there.

I found out about the murder and the vehicle description after I had been out and about town for several hours. After speaking to one of the deputies who was on-scene and also at the party I went to Saturday night (who, by the way, told me this was the first time he had ever been involved with a fugitive stop and been drinking beers with the subject six hours later) said that they thought there was a good chance he'd stop by his old workplace (where he had just been fired from). To get to that business, he would have been traveling the same direction on the same highway. I live about four miles from the place. He also said that dispatch had only given a description of a black Corvette. The deputy saw a black Corvette heading down a stretch of highway they thought he'd be on. I don't blame him one bit.

The suspect killed the new boyfriend of his recent ex (girlfriend or wife, I'm not sure). Went to his house and shot him six times in the back of the head while he was asleep. He beat the crap out of her, too, but didn't kill her. She was the witness. Told the police who had done it and what he was driving.

At the party that night I told the deputy who had been there that apparently it doesn't do much good knowing and being friends with the top brass. I said it's evident that I need to get to know the road dogs. He said when it was going down, he started telling people I wasn't the guy. He said, "I'm watching this guy do everything to a tee and thinking 'this is too much like a training exercise. We've got the wrong dude. Bad guys don't cooperate like this'"

He also said I was the largest man he'd ever seen get out of a Corvette and hoped I didn't decide to hurt anyone.

Also, my car has State Police Memorial plates. The extra fee goes to a fund to help the families of fallen troopers. I was telling everyone that when I got the plates I wasn't thinking it would get me out of any tickets, but figured if I did ever get pulled over, I would hope that the cop might keep in mind that I'm not a complete asshole. I told them that afternoon had blown that theory clear out of the water. They laughed. The one deputy told me that when one of the other guys saw my plate and before they ran my ID, he asked if anyone could get that plate or did they just do a fugitive stop on a State Trooper. I laughed.

Throughout the whole ordeal, barking voice maintained a high level of professionalism and in my e-mail to the Sheriff I even commended his guys on their performance. I know that they had to be amped up and ready to get it on if need be, but everyone stayed calm and controlled. There was no swearing, no yelling (other than barking voice being loud out of necessity), no rough treatment while I was detained, and, most importantly, no tasering (although the Sheriff did joke with me on that last point).

All in all, no harm...no foul. And I've got a kickass story to tell.

Awesome.. Good story..



As for MHM, I agree also with you..

are all of you this dumb? reread the post, he chose to drive the car, went to school, then found out about it.



and jesus christ, is it really needed to shut down the highway, and call in all that backup, just to ask you a few questions? i'd probably be after barking voice's job. this is america, and you don't put people in cuffs cause their car kinda matched a description.

No, CoMoChief is just a semi-literate assclown.

You should know this by now.

I'm sorry if you can't tell the generation differences on a corvette you're not American.

I do not think that is what he is talking about.. The average person could not describe a black sports car speeding past or leaving quickly to say it was a late 80's black corvette..

If they can't tell an 88 corvette from an 02 corvette, then they can't tell a corvette from a miata.

A lot of people need to read the entire thread(or I do, but this is what I took from it). 1. Dispatch said a black corvette, that's it...no year or anything.(kind of odd though since the it was in the story he read) So if your looking for a black corvette and it's in the same area you suspect this guy will be you do what you have to do. 2. The chick knew what the guy drove/looked like/name because it was her ex. 3. CoMo is a dumbass.

Turns out that a witness had identified the suspect to police and given them a description of the car he was driving, a 1988 black convertible Corvette, complete with the plate numbers.

Didn't read the whole thread but it seems to me all they had to do was look at your license plate number to realize you weren't the perpetrator.

man....police need a checks and balance system. BAD. They get away with too much shit with nobody to hold them accountable. The very public that pays their salaries can't protect themselves from this. They have to take it. period.

At the time, he didn't have that information. All he was looking for was a black Corvette. When he saw one going down a stretch of road where it was thought the suspect might go, he initiated pursuit. I can't blame him for that. Why didn't he have the complete information? I don't know. There was a breakdown in communication prior to his involvement.

Or that guy could have cooperated with them. There's a right way and a wrong way to handle every situation for both the cops AND the person getting arrested. If this guy had just ****ing shut up and put his hands behind his back and went without RESISTING ARREST there would be no issue. The officers have to protect themselves and those around the situation, what if this kid had a weapon and he was trying to resist arrest so he could pull it?

Do some cops do the wrong thing, hell yes. I would be willing to bet that the majority of cops that handle a situation badly and not by protocol, have consequences to pay. Don't forget they are human and will make bad calls sometimes(kinda like a ref in a football game, it's their job to get it right but sometimes in the heat of the moment they mess up.) The important thing is to hold them accountable for their mistakes and again I believe the majority of times they do. You act like every cop is a ****ing murderer with a badge. (just going off of your posts that i remember in the last year or so if I'm mistaking you with someone else I apologize). The VAST majority are out to help. There are just so many police officers that the low percentage of shitty cops makes it seem like there are a lot out there.
