This is a story I heard recently. It is probably not true, but anyway...
This guy had been charged with speeding and failing to obey an officer of the law. and was appearing before the judge to plead his case.
"Your Honour," he said, "it's true that this OPP (Ontario Provincial Police) cruiser was following me, and there was a woman passenger in the car. The thing is, I thought I recognized the policeman, and he looked like the guy my wife had left me for. I couldn't really tell, but -- what's worse -- the woman looked like my ex! He kept following me, so I kept speeding up, and then he put his flashing lights on, and so eventually I stopped, and that's when he arrested me."
"But, sir, why didn't you stop right away?" asked the judge
"It's just that, you know judge, I was just so scared he was trying to give her back to me."
(As I said, there is probably not an ounce of truth to this story.)
