CRUNCH TIME FOR COP CAR 2010
Lancaster County Sheriff's deputies are practiced in the fine art of patience. That's clear on a video showing an SUV backing into a deputy's cruiser during a traffic stop on -- of course -- April Fools Day. Sheriff Terry Wagner said Deputy Ryan Schmuecker pulled over a 2007 BMW GL320 for speeding about 5:30 a.m. Thursday north of Bennett on Nebraska 43. In footage from the cruiser's dash-mounted camera, the Beemer begins to back up as Schmuecker walks toward it. "Whoa, hey, hey, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop!" he says. Then, the sound of a crunch, and the deputy just sort of slumps. He stands on the road for a full 12 seconds, then says calmly: "Need to see your license, registration and insurance, sir." "The deputy's reaction is priceless," Wagner said in an e-mail. "I'm sure the deputy is thinking about all of the paperwork required when a government vehicle is involved in a crash." After Schmuecker collects the information, he says, "You want to pull your vehicle up so it's not on top of mine anymore, please?" And amazingly, the SUV's reverse lights pop on again. "Stop!" Schmuecker shouts. "What's the problem, sir?" The driver replies he tried to put the BMW into park but it didn't go. It doesn't appear to have happened on purpose, Wagner said, and there was no alcohol involved. It was just one of those days. The driver was cited for careless driving. The cruiser, a 2009 Ford Crown Victoria, suffered $400 damage, according to the accident report.
OFF DUTY ASSHOLE (2009)
Now that State Police Investigator Matthew Sullivan has taken a plea offer in connection to the February traffic stop and subsequent police chase by a fellow Trooper, the Oneida County District Attorney's Office has released the dashcam video from the stop. In the dashcam video from the traffic stop, Trooper David Olney has another car stopped along the road in the Town of Trenton, for speeding. It is while addressing this driver that Olney sees Matthew Sullivan, and a car, later revealed in depositions to be that of Kathryn Barefoot, a colleague of Sullivan's from the Great American Irish Festival, go speeding past him on Route 12. Trooper Olney quickly gets back into his car and pursues these vehicles down Route 12. Sullivan gives Olney a long, high-speed chase, reaching speeds of up to 85 miles per hour before finally pulling alongside the road. Once stopped, Sullivan immediately exits his vehicle, and makes his way to Trooper Olney's car. Trooper Olney repeatedly tells Sullivan to return to his car. Sullivan continually says "Dave, what are you doing?" and disregards Olney's warning. At one point, Olney says "I'm trying to stop you. Get back in your car. I'm not going to stand in the middle of the road." Sullivan eventually makes his way back to his car, and tells Olney that he hadn't been drinking that night. In that video, Sullivan also denies that the car that was behind him, and pulled up behind Olney's cruiser, was with him. Depositions later revealed this was not true - and that car was Barefoot, who said she was following Sullivan back to his house after an Irish Fest meeting to discuss "personal issues." When Olney tells Sullivan to get back into his car, he does - but does not stay parked - taking off along Route 12 and leading Olney on a high speed chase that would take itself through Route 365 and eventually to Sullivan's own home. Sullivan runs out of his vehicle and into his home, where he remained barricaded for roughly three hours.

Dave Kaplan, a spokesman for Berra, said that the 83-year-old former catcher was notified of what Chamberlain said, Newsday reported.
DUI CAPTURE OF A WILD WOMAN 2008
A jury has convicted a Harpers Ferry woman in a drunk driving incident where she nearly ran over a police officer with her car, and then resisted arrest. The main evidence used by prosecutors was police dash-cam video that captured the incident on tape. It happened on February 16th. Harpers Ferry Police Chief Donald Buracker says he was nearly mowed down by an More.. out-of-control driver on Route 340, while he was providing back-up to a fellow officer. Within seconds of the near miss, which was not captured on tape, Buracker took off, trailing the BMW for several miles before the driver, Stacia Lynn Fuller, finally pulled over on Country Club Road. Buracker says Fuller was totally uncooperative, and after several minutes of yelling and cursing, Fuller was still not in handcuffs, and continued to resist. A male friend and her dog remained inside the car, watching the ordeal unfold.
