    At work today I got a call for a tow on a wrecked car. Then I found out that the car was rammed by a stolen car suspect while the unit captain that drove the wrecked car was hanging out of the window of the suspect's car. Ther captains car was pushed about 80 feet into through a parking lot at a convenience store and into a power pole shearing the pole off at the ground.
    When I got there I realized how big of a scene it was and saw the cameras. I really wasn't planning on being on TV today but when I got back to my office my crew was telling me they saw me live.

    That's me in the yellow vest and knee brace at the truck.

    Oh! Just thought of this . . . there's some real bug-futly oddball guitars in the classified section that would go with your outfit! Check 'em out. The post starts with "Jersey" something or other . . . some people are drooling over them, but I think they are as cute as your mask. :whistling:

    I love the first line of that story: "A driver trying to avoid police crashed into a patrol car" :rolleyes:

    So you gotta make the most of your newly re-discovered fame... I mean, it isn't everyday you make the news at 6 -- esp if you're NOT doing something wrong! :D

    I do! Well, actually, now I am a supervisor for the KCPD Fleet. I started wrenching for them in June of 2003 then was injured in June of 2011. When I came back from the injury I worked in the Radio shop for the communications support unit for almost 2 years while recovering from the broken leg before coming back to the fleet and being promoted 6 years ago. I was only running that tow because one of my employees hasn't been fully trained yet, one was on a day off and the third was on his lunch break.
