WOW!! I stopped to get gas over my lunch hour, and when I pulled in, I
noticed a police officer looking at a woman who was smoking while
fueling up; and I'm thinking "What an idiot, with the police standing
right there!" -- never mind all the NO SMOKING warning signs.
So I go in, and pay for my fuel; and, as I'm checking out, I hear someone screaming "Look Outside!"
The woman's arm was on fire!!! She's running around like a chicken with
its head cut off, waving her arm around and just going crazy. Those of
us inside, go out, and the officer put her on the ground, and put the
fire out with an extinguisher.
After all the craziness, I start walking to my car, and I see the officer putting her in handcuffs. The guy next to me is like, "What the heck?!?"
I hang around to see what happens, and the guy calls to the officer, and
asked what in the world were they arresting her for. After all, wasn't
catching her arm on fire punishment enough?
I kid you not, the officer looked him dead in the eye and said, "For
waving a firearm."
