These Prankster Cops Are Handing Out Ice Cream Instead Of Tickets

With police-related tragedies popping up left and right lately, the gap between cops and citizens is steadily growing wider and wider. One department intends to change that in the best way possible.

In an attempt to strengthen communication between the police and the communities they serve, Police Chief Kevin Lands and his fellow officers from the Halifax Police Department in Virginia have begun pulling people over and informing them of their crime, breaking “vehicle code 1739.” Check out the video below to see the punishment that was doled out.

According to Fox 2 St. Louis, Officer Warner pulled over 20 people that day, although he was dishing out ice cream cones rather than tickets.

Thankfully for all of us, Officer Warner’s partner captured this young lady’s reaction to the welcome surprise.

“Her reaction was absolutely the best,” Warner said. “It was genuine, and she had us smiling and laughing for a good hour afterwards, and I’ve probably watched the video myself 50 times just laughing… and that’s one of the great things with police work. You get to meet people like that on a daily basis, and it makes the job worth it.”

If all police departments were like this, I have a feeling the world would be a much more amicable place.

Shoney’s Is Showing Cops Some Love With A Free Meal

Shoney's Logo

Shoney’s is offering a free meal to all members of the law enforcement community.  The American restaurant chain will give any police officer a free meal anytime on Wednesday, July 27.

The idea was developed by Shoney’s CEO and chairman Mr. David Davoudpour, who in a press release said it was a move to thank the law enforcement community as a whole.

“America’s men and women in blue need to hear ‘Thank You’ in a tangible and heartfelt way,” Davoudpour said. 

This isn’t the only time that Shoney’s has supported law enforcement. The chain annually holds a run called Shoney’s 5k Family Fun Run at the chain’s headquarters in Nashville. The run, now in its 8th year donates all proceeds to the Nashville Police Fund. All funds are also matched by Davoudpour.

The deal will be offered across all Shoney’s restaurants. Officers are limited to one free meal each, and must either arrive in uniform or provide proper identification. The offer is also only valid for dine-in meals.

The DA Officially Charges Those Santa Ana Cops Who Raided A Dispensary And Ate ‘Food’

Remember those Santa Ana cops who got caught on camera raiding a dispensary last year? Those same cops who looked like they ate a bunch of edibles, made of a disabled lady and destroyed all the security cameras in the joint except the one that ended up catching them red handed? Yeah, well, those coppers are officially being charged with petty theft and vandalism.

A press release today from Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas officially confirms the charges against three Santa Ana Police Department (SAPD) officers. Brandon Matthew Sontag, 31, and Nicole Lynn Quijas, 37, and Jorge Arroyo, 32, were charged with one misdemeanor count of petty theft while Sontag also got slapped with a count of vandalism under $400.

If convicted on all counts, two of the officers (Arroyo and Quijas) face a max sentence of six months and while Sontag faces a one year and six month jail sentence.

While the surveillance footage shows the trio eating what was initially reported as “edibles,” the DA is claiming that they were just chomping on Detour Simple protein bars and Mrs. Thinsters cookies that they found in a room off-camera. Not saying the DA is wrong, but what are the odds that cops raid a dispensary and get so hungry in the process that they just decide to opt for the petty theft of a couple protein bars? Then of course there’s the footage of the officers just meandering around playing darts after eating whatever it is they ate. But let’s not jump to conclusions.

Couldn’t they just have made some Weed Oreo Cookies at home, and called it a night?

The three officers are scheduled for arraignment on April 11, 2016 for those of you who are interested in attending.

Woman Goes Into A Rage Over Ice Cream Cone With TOO FEW Sprinkles

Sprinkle-Rage

Apparently not enough sprinkles on your ice cream is reason enough to go into a rage these days. A Michigan woman was so upset over an ice cream cone she ordered from a gas station that she became increasingly violent.

The station clerk allegedly did not include enough sprinkles when serving the woman the cone and, because of this, she began to fly into a rage. A male companion was present with the woman, and when he tried to calm her down, she began to pound on him.

While the two eventually left, the clerk decided to call the cops with her license plate number in case she returned with more sprinkle-induced fury. No charges have been pressed.

Sheriff’s Deputy Pleads Guilty to Pepper-Spraying a 19-Year-Old’s Pizza

Sheriff's Deputy Pleads Guilty to Pepper Spraying Pizza

Juan Tavera, a six-year veteran of the force, pleaded guilty to pepper spraying a 19-year-old’s pizza during a traffic stop.

The OC Weekly reported that the teen was pulled over in Laguna Hills, California on September 8, 2012 by one of Tavera’s colleagues patrolling the city. Tavera rolled up as backup and was accused of spotting the pizza in the backseat of the kid’s vehicle and pepper spraying the cheesy pie without his knowledge.

Later that evening the teen and his four friends became ill after eating the pizza and their mouths began to burn. Suspicious of what occurred during the traffic stop earlier, the victim contacted the Orange County Sheriff’s Department and Tavera was implicated. Although the cop initially faced up to a year in jail and was let go from the department last December, after pleading guilty on Friday, he was sentenced to 100 days of community service and probation.

While this hardly sounds like a proper sentence, the OC Weekly points out that Tavera’s sentence is the harshest punishment ever given to an Orange County law enforcement official while on the job.

Donut Handle Mug

Everyone has their favorite mug, whether it’s from some far off location you visited, or something your child crafted in 1st grade that you can’t bare to get rid of no matter how hideous it is. I can imagine this being a cop’s new favorite coffee mug, with a real feeling sprinkled donut as the front and a plain donut feel on the back. Leave it to Urban Outfitters to come up with something ingenious like this. (Thx IncredibleThings)
