Have you ever been in a situation or place and thought
wow..how did I get into this? Well it happened to me.
I was making a short 5 minute trip to the local post office.
I grabbed my keys and my drivers license holder.
I jumped in the car and away I went. I got to busiest
4 corner red light intersection and stopped at the red light.
ALL off the sudden a police car with lights flashing came
under the red light, made a U turn behind my car and threw his car
into park right beside me on the right hand side. Out he jumped
GUN drawn.  YIKES!!Surprised HE started yelling a woman’s name and
pointing the gun at the driver of a white jeep. HOLY COW.!!


I put my car into reverse and slowly backed up as there
was no one behind me at the time. EVERYTHING STOPPED.
ALL 4 lanes of each side of the light stopped. The light kept
changing but no one moved. It was like an episode of COPS
on TV.  I have seen many cop shows and you never know what
will happen in a situation like that. I just didn’t want to be in
the middle of it! I was shaking like a leaf. The cop kept yelling for
the woman to get out of the car. TWO children, one about 7 or 8
and the other maybe 12 or so jumped out of the back seat.
The police officer yelled for them to "get the hell out of here"
(hmmm I thought  that was ODD).. but they both started running.
Two gas stations on this corner and people were standing every
where watching. The officer was alone and I noticed  that he
was the same very officer that came to our house the
other day when the ambulance was called for mom.
The woman put the car in park and he opened the
door and yanked her out and slammed her up against
the car door. She was not resisting.
{ME .. YES ME… WITHOUT MY CAMERA!!   Camera   Eye-rolling
I tell ya I was dying… any other time I would have had
my purse. Sad}
 The officer slapped the cuffs on her and called
for backup. THEN he noticed that all four corners had
come to a complete stop. He needed to get things going.
Two cars came speeding into the scene to help him out.
Traffic started again after the officer had the woman
in the car. I went on to the post office when the officer
told me to go ahead. I was happy they didnt detain me
as a witness. Now days the dash board camera tells the
tale. Not much needed from by standers.

I have no idea what the woman was being arrested for.

I only know that it was serious because he came out of
that car with his gun raised and yelling hard enough to
make everyone just stop dead in their tracks. It was
pretty unnerving. So grateful the woman did not
resist and it ended peacefully. Many by standers
wondered WHY he let the kids run away from the scene.
Maybe that was easier than putting them in protective
custody on a weekend, who knows the circumstance.
WHEW. that was enough for one whole weekend for me!
The nascar race was great on Saturday night. Had a record
of 16 cautions so that means action. It was full of it. I loved
every minute. I also loved the finale of Celeb Apprentice
on Sunday. Here is a savvy 75 year old businesswoman, JOAN
RIVERS. who out lasted and played them all. It was a sight to see!
She made me proud of her accomplishments. Seniors are
nothing to be messed with!! Smile
The drama between the two main opponents was fantastic.
NBC has okayed another season of this show, but I don’t know if
it could ever be as full of drama as this season.
JOAN’s charity won. Was very happy for her.
Well enough about that…

  1. You sure was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Glad you are okay but sorry about the frazzled nerves.Hope you and your Mom have a great week ahead and only be in the right places at the right time.

  2. That was SOMETHING! I have never had such an experience and I sure don’t want to. WOW! Maybe he had the kids put of there because that woman abducted them??

  3. OMG! I am glad that you are okay and that everything worked out. You will have to keep us posted if you hear anything about what was going on

  4. Hope you find out in the paper what all that was about! I’ll bet the cop thought those kids might be in danger or get shot, so that’s why he told them to run and get out of there. Perhaps he had word that she was "armed and dangerous." SO glad you weren’t in the middle of some big shoot out. Let us know when you find out what she was arrested for!

  5. Well, that was quite the expierence you had wasn’t it. Makes me wonder if the kids were hers. Maybe it was a custody case. Happy for your sake it didn’t get any worse.Did you see Annie Dukes face when she thought Donald was going to pick her as the winner. Poor thing started jumping for joy then realized he was firing her and her whole expression changed. Have a great dayHugsSherry

  6. Oh yikes that made me nervous reading it! I’m dying to know what she got arrested for! Geesh I’m happy you got out of it!

  7. My goodness, that’s about enough excitement for the day don’t you think? I’ve not had too much like that happen to me personally howeve a week ago something like that happened to my wife when she was running erands on th west end of time…it’s scary how in an instant everything can change. I’m so glad you and everyone involved came through that safely!

  8. OMG now that is just a little too much excitement for one day. So glad there was no shots fired and you are okay. Gee the closest I ever came to witnessing anything was three years ago when I was on my way home from the drugstore and saw a man down on the sidewalk, I presumed he had been hit by a car and where I hadn’t seen it I didn’t stop but later that day I found out it was a police officer and he had been shot. When I found out how close I had been to witnessing him getting shot, I got the shakes and took me awhile to get over that. He came on the scene of someone selling drugs and all hell broke lose after that.One never knows what life is going to hand them each day.Take care sweetpea and God bless………………Rusty ((HUGS))

  9. No camera? tsk tsk…you won’t do that again! Sounds really exciting and I would love to know what she did to get pulled over like that. I was really surprised that Joan won last night. Happy, but surprised.

  10. Gracious, Carole Dee, your life is exciting ..lol We never know when we may need a camera. I wonder about her children. Have a calming week…lol , but bring your camera. Ann
