Just got lectured by a cop...

So I pull into 7-11 as a cop is getting into his Tahoe cruiser. Seeing me pull up, he stops getting into his cruiser and waits for me to get out of my truck. As I get out, he asks me, "Are you the owner of this truck?"

I said, "Yes, sir."

Then he goes off on saying how he was off duty one day and, apparently, I cut him off, go driving off "like a jack ass", burn out "at least 6 times", and all this time, he was "following me".

I was really surprised because I do not drive like that. I might burn out once a week, but that is because I might be trying to get into traffic real quick and I drive stick. I love my taco too much to burn out 6 times in one drive. Second of all, I dont cut people off. If I do, it is because I really needed to get into that lane and it is my fault.

He then went off on saying that he could get me for how my tires stick out farther than my front fenders and that I am not running front plates. I am registered in Arizona, and the law is a Santa Clara, CA cop, so, technically, he cant get me for those things. He can get me for not changing my address within 10 days of moving, but I cant see myself registering a different form room every 10 months.

I know the cop was nice to let me off the technicalities, but I seriously think he was exaggerating my actions to intimidate me.

The whole time he lectured me, I just nodded and said "yes, sir, sorry sir" I didnt deny anything cuz I didnt want to piss him off. Any input? I know everyone down plays their bad driving, but I dont cut off people and then go burning out on a truck I spent most of my hard earned money modding

....PS the cop was at least 6'8" and weighed >250 lbs...needless to say, I was as obedient as a show dog

Maybe it was a different long traveled SWB taco in Santa Clara.

Atleast you got off clean.

Sounds like he was having a bad day. It also could have been someone else that did those things. But good call on not talking back.

Oh and although it would have been extremely inappropriate, it would have been funny if you said, "Sorry mister. Me no speake Engrish."

Did the 711 not have their fresh doughnuts yet? j/k

I think you did the right thing, and I also think he just wanted to make an impression on a younger driver

Honestly, I think the police officer was being an ass and trying to intimidate you a bit. If you ever run into him again and he starts pestering you, I'd tell him that your truck isn't as conspicuous as you both had thought, then let him know that you went to a local "rally" and there was a couple of trucks almost identical to yours in color and build. If he starts giving you shit about how you drove in the past again, plainly ask if you are under arrest or getting any citations for said driving. If the answer is yes, ask to review the video footage his cruiser took of you driving. No evidence equals no proof. The size of the cop shouldn't have bothered you. The badge and pestering should have. BTW, make sure your ride is legit legally so you don't have to be subjected to their poking and proding of your build.

Well man just be cautious when you drive now. Because if he is on duty and see's you he will definatly be watching you. Thats one thing that sucks about driving a truck that sticks out like that. He was probably exagerating when he said you peeled out 6 times. As far as not being able to get you for those things he probably can becuase you enrolled in school and it will show that you have been here for X amount of days and are technically a resident, then will get busted for not getting CA plates and what not. If the truck isnt in your name then just say you are borrowing it from whoevers name it is. But I would obey every law because even if it wasnt you that did all this to him, they are going to be looking for you, and it wont be hard to miss you.

technically he can get you for those things. When your in CA you have to follow CA rules no matter where your registered. Changing your address after 10 days of moving is if your a sex offender in CA.

But if he is going to school here and lives in the dorms he has to change his adress and register his vehicle. I had a guy I work with go through this. CA laws are pretty gay.

Yea, my AZ plates kinda have me worried about getting in trouble for not changing, but not a single person who goes to my university has changed their plates if they are out of state, and the majority of our school's population is from out of state.

also, he is actually the first cop I met here who hasnt complimented my truck. I've had cops stop me when I get out of my truck and ask me about it (that's what I thought he was gonna do), but he did look really unhappy about something.

When I pulled up a dodge challenger pulled away and he kept staring down the driver of the challenger

Ya he was probably having a bad day, but either way I would be extremely cautious driving now. And as long as your tires dont stick past the fenders, I think 2", you are fine in that aspect. He also coulda been a new cop just lookin for some shit and thought you might put up a fight. You never know.

So you are suppose to completely change your truck if you are driving through california? I don't see that very likely that you would have to take your headers off and swap out suspension and body parts for just being in California for a short period of time.
