So, CA Cop towed a "lady's" (I really should be more selective in using that term) vehicle recently.  It was pretty uneventful, just the standard suspended license then tow the car sort of situation.

 He made his way back to the station later on that day.  He was greeted with the news that said "lady" had phoned in to complain about the way that CA Cop had spoken to her at the scene. Angry at some very specific remarks he made she let Sarge know that she was not pleased with CA Cop's handling of the situation.....

.....Only problem was that Sarge had been on that very scene with CA Cop.  He had heard every word and observed every action. He also did not hear the quote she stated or the actions she claimed she was subject to. Because they didn't happen.

This was not the first time CA Cop has had a citizen lie to a superior about his conduct, but I just found this situation especially amusing and especially irritating all at the same time!


  1. He should consider carrying a small digital voice recorder. There are pros and cons, but he strikes me as a fairly disciplined professional, not a guy with much to hide.

  2. He does carry one. He didn't at first, but quickly saw the necessity in having one. Has definitely come in handy!

  3. (sorry for the late reply, new reader...) This happens to my dad and his officers all the time. He gets to deal with the complaints now that he is a lieutenant. He gets both sides of the story before doing anything about it. Complaining on the people who protect you day in and out is not a good thing.

  4. HV- Glad your dad always gets both sides of the story. I am sure his experience has taught him that this is a necessity!
