Cops shoot fire chief in court for speeding.

Only in Arkansas.

"JERICHO, Ark. - It was just too much, having to return to court twice on the same day to contest yet another traffic ticket, and Fire Chief Don Payne didn't hesitate to tell the judge what he thought of the police and their speed traps.

The response from cops? They shot him. Right there in court.

Payne ended up in the hospital, but his shooting last week brought to a boil simmering tensions between residents of this tiny former cotton city and their police force. Drivers quickly learn to slow to a crawl along the gravel roads and the two-lane highway that run through Jericho, but they say sometimes that isn't enough to fend off the city ticketing machine."

In the link below, I liked the other one on the guy who got wrote up for 78 mph in his driveway.

We got one of those small towns in CA too with local police. Luckily, the cops have been working out of town in another city for a while until they cool off a bit. I've heard that was one of the reasons the California Highway Patrol was established to keep overzealous police forces under control. Dunno.
