Blooper Troopers

You know there's nothing I like better than cops looking stupid. And Gordon Graham of Utah just wrote an opus on it.

From Autoblog:
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.

Somewhere out there is a person who will take this video, speed it up, and set it to the Benny Hill theme music. And I will love that person, unconditionally.
