Florida Woman Stops For McDonalds, Not For Police

This is just funny.

64-year old Coral Springs resident, Roberta Spen, was approached by a police officer at the local McDonald’s—while she was placing a food order in the drive-thru lane—and was told to pull into the parking lot for a traffic stop. Rather than doing so, she completed her order, collected her food, and drove off.

So, the officer follows her out of the lot and flips his lights and siren at her again. She stops, he gets out and asks her to roll down her window and show him her license, insurance, and registration.  Instead of doing so, she—according to the police report—”rolled her window down one inch and said she was not speeding and she would not roll her window down”, after which she pulled off—again!

The officer, now accompanied by several of his nearby friends in their police cars, box this woman in at an intersection. Instead of deciding the jig is up, and giving up this nonsensical episode, Ms. Spen calmly backs her car up and manages to get away from this mini-blockade.

Her next, and final, stop was a gas station where, with many police units now involved, she is taken from her vehicle—by force—and escorted to jail.

By the time all was said and done, she racked up several avoidable charges which included fleeing and eluding, resisting arrest without violence, and driving with defective equipment—the latter (a faulty brake light) being the reason for the stop in the first place.

I tell you, you can’t make this stuff up.

Hope she enjoyed that McDonald’s as it will likely be the most expensive order she’s ever made.
