There are even times when police officers have to deal with bizarre or even humorous situations.

1) First Experience With A Psychopath: Worst criminal I’ve ever encountered was a teenager who had murdered two men by stabbing them in the head with a screwdriver.

2) Is There A Problem Officer?: One late night I was on patrol and found a van parked in a rural area. The driver’s side door was open and the driver had his legs sticking out of the window propped up. The guy was completely passed out and had no idea I was even there. When I shook him to wake him, he sat back in his seat, did up his seatbelt and closed the door then said “is there a problem Officer?” The guy was drunk out of his mind.
