Here is the post I was talking about. It was written by screen name Tackleberry.
This isn't anything compared to some of the other stories here, but in comparison to the normal day to day patrolling on Hanscom AFB it is defiantly one of the more memorable traffic stops I've made.
This happened a few months back. I was patrolling on Hanscom AFB when I noticed a car traveling toward me at 42 in a 25, and blow through a 4 way stop sign. As he passed me I noticed the driver was talking on his cell phone. I made a quick 3 point turn and blue lighted the vehicle. As my partner and I approached the vehicle the driver rolled down his window, leans out of his car, flashes his MIT ID, and yelled "It's OK I'm a civilian, and if you would excuse me I need to be somewhere." He then rolled back up his window and drove off. My partner and I just stared at each other with puzzled looks, and then busted out laughing. As we walked back to our car I radioed the gates and had them stop all out bound traffic. I pulled up behind the vehicle once again while he was waiting in the line to exit the base. I got on the PA and told him to pull over to the side and shut the engine off. When I made contact with the driver I asked for his License, Reg, and Base ID. He snapped, "Is there some confusion here Airman?" I replied "Apparently your the one confused sir." He then said "Did I not identify myself as a civilian to you?" "Now if you don't mind stop wasting my time and let me be on my way." I then notified him of all the violations that I had observed. Traveling 42 in a 25, failed to stop for a posted sign, impeded operation (not using a hands free cell phone which is illegal on base), not wearing a seatbelt, and finally failure to yield for an emergency vehicle. He then replied "So what does this have to do with me?" "Your military and you have no authority over me." I stated "Well sir I don't know who fed you that load of crap, but their wrong." I went back to my car where I wrote a total of 5 citations. I went back to his vehicle and explained each of the citations to him. He said "but these are all Massachusetts General Law violations. I said "Yes sir because your a civilian remember." The guy then asked me if it too late to get a verbal warning on some of them. When I said no the guy had the nerve to say "Well then I guess I better start paying attention on base for now on because I've been blowing stop signs and speeding for 4 years now and just figured you couldn't do anything." I told him to shut up and go before something comes out of his mouth that's going regret.
Two months later I went to Magistrate Court for the 5 citations I wrote. The Magistrate found him guilty on all except the failure to yield for emergency vehicle.
