no service write up and you lost this guy's business? not that you'd want it.
I was on lunch so I could sit around and watch the fun!
A black '09 Rav4 pulls into our shop with the r/f tire blown out,r/f fender squashed flat and pushed back,r/s mirror torn off,both r/s doors squashed flat and the r/s curtain airbags deployed.It was obvious to me this dingbat had creamed a pole!
The driver appeared "unsteady" but I thought the poor ****** might be suffering from a concussion and cut him some slack.
I talked to one of our writers that was looking at the Rav and asked "Wazzup"? "The guy says he hit a pole".
Yeah and?? why the F didn't he stay where he was after hitting the friggin pole and then come here,did he think we'd fix the damn thing so he could keep running?? Did anyone call the cops yet?
So I get on my cell and tell the cops an obvious accident vehicle came into our shop and the driver was acting suspiciously.
About 3min go by and one then two Cliffs Cops show up,the first cop in was big kid himself with huge arms.I met him and said:"there's the vehicle and there's the driver,you can sort this out".Cop #2 took pics of the Rav and went out to his car and got on the radio.
Cop #1 very nicely interviewed the driver asking how he was and what happened.I could only hear snippets but I heard the cop say "are you under the influence of any medication or drugs?".No,not me.
About this time Cop#2 comes back in and whispers in #1's ear.Cop#1 says "come out to my car with me,PUT YOUR HANDS ON THE ROOF OF THE CAR" and proceeds to pat down this loser.Cop #1 pulls a huge bag of weed and a bottle of oxycontin from the fool's waist band!
Out come the cuffs and I hear miranda being read.You would think by now that this rocket scientist had dug his hole deep enough..but nooo.Cop#1 politely asked him to get in the back seat of the car and the jerk refused and gave the cop an argument about it.
Suffice to say,an "attitude adjustment" was administered to the suspect and he was fully cooperative afterwards.
By this time I'm asking myself when will the fun ever end?
That's when two more cops from a town 5mi away pulled in and took pics and possession of the 'evidence bag',it seems this guy hit a pole in their town and just kept driving to get away,one of them had the mirror from the Rav that came off at the scene.
Now the EMTs from the local hospital show up and the cops load the loser into the ambulance,I'm guessing he was taken to get blood work done to see what was in him exactly.
Finally as a "coup de gr
