In Hernando County, Florida, a driver refused to move his SUV from the sidewalk right outside the main entry and exit door at the county jail.

He then turned back toward the jail and deputies said he took aim with his vehicle at a deputy’s patrol car. The man turned abruptly, drove in a circle and struck a flagpole. He was ordered from the vehicle and taken into custody.

On I-65 in Indiana, a state trooper pulled over a man for speeding. The man was traveling with his daughter who has Down Syndrome. The trooper decided to make the daughter a state trooper for five minutes and asked her whether she wanted to issue her dad a warning or a ticket. The girl chose a ticket. However, the good-hearted trooper only issued a warning. The Indiana State Police responded to the man’s post about the incident that they are glad the daughter is on their side.
