Oklahoma State Trooper

"In most of the United States, there is a policy of checking on any stalled vehicle on the highway when the temperatures drop down to single digits or below.

About 3 AM, one very cold morning, Trooper Allan Nixon #658 responded to a call there was a car off the shoulder of the road outside Shattuck .

He located the car, stuck in deep snow, and with the engine still running. Pulling in behind the car with his emergency lights on, the Trooper walked to the driver's door to find an older man passed out behind the wheel with a nearly empty vodka bottle on he seat beside him.

The driver came awake when the Trooper tapped on the window.

Seeing the rotating lights in his rearview mirror, and the State Trooper standing next to his car, the man panicked.

He jerked the gearshift into 'drive' and hit the gas.

The car's speedometer was showing 20-30-40 and then 50 mph, but it was still stuck in the snow, wheels spinning.

Trooper Nixon, having a sense of humor, began running in place next to the speeding, but still stationary car.

The driver was totally freaked, thinking the Trooper was actually keeping up with him. This goes on for about 30 seconds, then the Trooper yelled, "Pull over!"

The man obeyed, turned his wheel and stopped the engine.

Needless to say, the man from Dumas, Texas was arrested, and is probably still shaking his head over the State Trooper in Oklahoma who could run 50 miles per hour."

Who says Trooper's don't have a sense of humor?

THAT is too funny! - I was so afraid when the story began that something tragic had happened to the trooper - mindset today I guess- so glad you posted it...I can't wait to share with the family. The mental pic ...too funny!

ROFL!!!! That's hilarious!

Have you seen that video going around where the female trooper stops a driver potentially DUI? It's probably staged but I was in tears by the end of it.

Too funny. It reminds of an episode of Cops that I saw. Some guy was all tweaked out, and jogging at about, oh...the speed of a turtle. The cop just drove slowly beside him, and the tweaked out guy thought that he was actually running as fast as the car could drive. He thought that he was doing great! The cop just pulled over before the poor guy had a heartattack.
Thanks for the smile!
