Video: Bare-breasted woman’s motorcycle crash caught on cop dashcam

Filed under: Etc., Videos, Motorcycle

We’ve said it before, we’ll say it now: it’s not that stranger things are happening now, it’s just that the interwebz allow us to spread them to the world at the speed of fiber optic light. The latest incident captured on America’s version of the Russian dash-cam, which is the policeman’s dash-cam, is a woman just outside Milwaukee riding erratically down the highway on a motorcycle.

Sure, that’s pretty thin. But this woman had unbuttoned her shirt, was screaming, her breasts bared, slowing down to 10 miles per hour and “kind of assaulting people with her motorcycle,” and speeding up again.

Not surprisingly, she got the attention of the authorities pretty quickly, who followed her until she crashed. Her only injury: a cut on the chin. Her only lapse: riding while under the influence of prescription drugs. For the second time, since she’d been busted for it before.

You can watch the video subtitled “Just another day in America” below. It is totally SFW.

Video: Perp steals cop car from back seat, makes dangerous getaway

Filed under: Etc., Government/Legal, Videos

In an episode that wouldn’t have been out of place on Reno 911!, a man that was on suspicion of being under the influence of drugs, alcohol or both, was picked up by police for stealing a pickup truck, and managed to wriggle out of his handcuffs and steal the police cruiser he was being held inside. The entire fiasco, which took place last month near Salt Lake City, can be seen on the cruiser’s in-car cameras.

The suspect, Gordon Graham, took advantage of the officers’ inattentiveness while they were searching his truck, contorting about so his hands were in front of him, and then wiggling out of the cuffs. He then dove head-first through a flap that was opened for him after complaining about the heat, got in the driver’s seat, and made a break for freedom.

After nearly hitting one of the deputies in his escape, Graham lead police on a high-speed chase across two Utah counties. He eventually abandoned the cruiser, leading cops on a two-hour manhunt.

Not surprisingly, police caught up with him. Graham was charged, plead guilty and was sentenced to prison for second-degree receiving stolen property, second-degree theft and two counts of shoplifting in the third degree.

Check out the two videos below for a rundown of the chase. The first is a newcast from KSL TV in Salt Lake, while the other is in-car video of Graham’s escape from the handcuffs.

Video: Monkey bites rookie cop issuing a speeding ticket

Filed under: Etc., Government/Legal, Police/Emergency, Humor

Police officers are trained to be very careful when approaching vehicles they have pulled over, but we’re sure at least one rookie cop in Texas will be extra vigilant in the future. Aransas Pass (just east of Corpus Christi) rookie officer Keith Moore was issuing a speeding ticket to a driver of a pickup truck, and when he went to have the driver sign his citation, a monkey lunged from the back seat and bit Moore on his hand.

Even though the whole ordeal was captured on Moore’s sunglass-mounted camera, his sergeant still had a hard time believing what had happened, and both seemed to handle the situation quite well – apparently neither have seen the movie Outbreak. As it turns out, Corpus Christi’s KRIS TV says that the ill-tempered – and non-seatbelt-wearing – monkey travels with his owner to carnivals and festivals to pose with visitors. The first-person video of the monkey’s surprise traffic stop attack is posted below.

Motorist gets pulled over by the same cop twice in two years. 12,000 miles apart.

Filed under: Etc., Government/Legal, Humor

Getting pulled over by the police for speeding is among the more unpleasant feelings a driver can experience. But while a ticket can most certainly ruin someone’s day, for some reason, most ticketed motorists feel compelled to tell everyone they know the backstory that led to the dastardly fine. The stories are rarely overly interesting, but every once in a while a real Pulitzer-eligible tale unfolds.

A New Zealand driver has just such a yarn to spin after he was pulled over twice in two years by the same cop. In two different countries. 12,000 miles apart. The Daily Mail reports that the unnamed driver was pulled over by officer Andy Flitton in the UK two years ago and again recently in New Zealand. The unlucky driver, who island-hopped to New Zealand after 12 years in the UK, recognized the ticket-giver as the same man who caught him breaking the law on the A5 near London. The officer had recently relocated south after 26 years on the force in England.

Even though the driver was out a good chunk of change for the two infractions, at least the driver can lay claim to the most interesting ticket officer Flitton has ever written.

Transformers 3 Bumblebee Camaro crash

Autobots, roll out… No, wait! – Click above to watch videos after the jump

You know how they say some movies are cursed? It seems that may just be the case for the folks working on Transformers 3. The movie has had its share of crashes, with a few of them being of the “unplanned” variety. The latest incident takes place in Washington D.C. and involves a certain yellow Camaro that Transformers fans know better as Bumblebee.

As a scene was being filmed, a real police vehicle was responding to a call and cut quickly across the set. The two cars collided and the police officer driving the SUV was taken to a nearby hospital, but it appears there are no serious injuries – except to the Camaro, which was covered up and taken away.

Earlier this year, production came to a screeching halt when Gabrielo Cedillo had to be rushed to the hospital. Cedillo, an extra, was driving a car when a cable from a camera vehicle broke loose, smashed through her windshield and hit her in the head. She underwent emergency surgery but her stint in the ICU is up, and her condition is improving.

A trio of videos of this latest accident can be seen after the jump. Thanks for the tip, Mark!
