Speeding While Stupid

Man refuses to show license, calls 911 during stop

A 36-year-old man in Orlando, Florida was pulled over by a Highway Patrolman for speeding. When the officer asked for the man's license, the guy refused. Refusal gets you arrested. The two grappled which ended with the man calling 911, claiming he was being assaulted by a police officer.

Didn't a woman do a similar thing? I swear I saw on one of those stupidest criminal clip shows a woman called 911 claiming a cop was harassing her. The guy asked for her license, she refused and he gets accused of harassment. I can understand dialing 911 if the cop was doing the actual crime but it's just stupid calling the cops to get out of a speeding ticket. It won't work and you'll look like a dumbass for trying.

Ranks right up there with those two kids who tried to rob a police station.
