Spotsylvania County, Virginia (where I reside) is being featured on On Patrol: Live, from December 2 through Feb 4, 2023. On Patrol: Live is on Reelz and if you don’t have cable, then it is available on Philo. Philo is a digital streaming service, for just $25 a month.

New episodes coming on Fridays and Saturdays.

This episode was S01E53 broadcasted on February 03, 2023. Camera crews tagged along with Deputy Jessica Delage and Deputy Tristen Burnett. They featured one incident in this episode.

** I will only mention the names of individuals who were arrested. Those arrest records are available online in several places and in the local news media as well.

This episode lasted 3 hours with Spotsylvania being featured one time, at the very end of the episode.

Today’s theme seemed to be drunk, drinking, and just plain old being shit-faced. This episode really highlights the bull shit that police officers across the U.S. have to put up with. They rarely have to the person who is going to allow the officer to take control of the situation take their ticket and move on. The first three incidents are the police listening to a ton of BS and taking the abuse. And the officers were not only professional but they went easy on the people.

Incident 1

Deputy Tristen Burnett made a traffic stop on Plank Road in the Five Mile Fork area.

The guy claimed he had one beer at the Moose Lodge (which is about 100′ away). He passed all the field sobriety tests and Dep Burnett, let him go back to the Moose Lodge.

Daytona Beach, FL

We open with a stolen U-Haul pickup truck at a Beech Grove, Indiana Walmart. By the look on the face of the male, he thought they were paying on it. I bet the fiance was using the money for something else. Not much excitement here, except they receive a call of a shoplifter resisting arrest at that same Walmart. The camera crew goes on that call with one of the officers.

Officer: What is your name
Shoplifter:” Sidney
Shoplifter: “Why are they recording”
Officer: Listen…Okay….Listen
Shoplifter: “I’m asking a question”

U-Haul couple
Deputy: “a little girl? you got a name picked out yet?”
Pregnant, women: Well the rehab we went to was called Praxis and we are thinking of naming her Praxis Kalyn”

Poor child, wait until she finds out what she was named after.

Richland County, SC

Cpl Bryce Hughes responds to someone who supposedly was whipped by a pistol. She arrives and talks to what appears to be a homeless guy walking to the gas station store, he said he got jumped.
There was no blood or any other evidence that the victim was hit, and the police didn’t find anything.

Berkeley County, SC

Cpl BJ Nelson responds to a domestic incident. And this is where this episode turns into a shitshow (later we really learn about a shitshow). I have no idea what is going on, and I don’t think that the police do either. There is a loud vocal drunk male, and a possibly loud drunk female, yelling at each other. There were more beeps than actual words in this segment. These two are like magnets the cops keep separating them and they keep finding each other. And of course, the male, “knows” the law, and the cops are illegally detaining him, the cameras can’t be there either. I’m not sure how this one turned out as Cpl Nelson was updating everyone, most of what he was saying was bleeped out because the two were still yelling at each other.

Wilkes-Barre, PA

A drunk male at a convenience store, who of course knows the “legal system” and the cops are arresting him illegally.

I love how he is “licensed to carry to kill” assuming he is talking about a Carry Conceal.

Daytona Beach, FL

Deputies notice a disabled vehicle, it turns out that it was three college students from the local college. They were collecting firewood for a bon-fire on the campus. The cops were very cool and they gave the three young men directions to a better place to collect some wood. Kudos!

Nye County, NV

This one was a muddy mess and was funnier than anything else. This man was covered in mud from head to toe for some reason. I couldn’t figure it out myself. I thought of the song “Ridin‘ by Chamillionaire.

Volusia County, Fl

Guy threw a case of beer and a salad at his girlfriend. She has a bump on her head. 

Dan Abrams:throwing a beer and tossing the salad
As they Romain at the scene

Curtis:Lettuce begin

Nye County, NV

This was recorded earlier in the day, it was a call of a naked male on the side of the road. When we find the guy and the camera pans, sure enough, we we just happen to see the first-ever person taking a dump on national TV, yep, we saw the whole thing.

Deputy Nicholas Huggins: “is this guy taking a shit”
Deputy Nicholas Huggins: “stop shitting bro”
Drunk shitting guy: “..I was looking for God”
Deputy Nicholas Huggins: ” I literally just watched shit come out of a man’s butt hole…”

Beech Grove, IN

A drunk man (drunk #1) is in the stairwell of an apartment complex. They get him detained and start to figure out what is going on. He passes out and queue the drunk from apartment #2 (drunk #2)

Drunk #2:  “We have a problem out here

He threatens them repeatedly, and I praise the cops for having to deal with that bullshit. He charges the cops on the stairs. The cop ends up shoving him and pulling his baton. Drunk #2 follows them up the stairs and outside the complex. Backup arrives and he gets arrested, shocker.

Nye County, NV

This was recorded earlier. Deputy David Stone is responding to a call with a child (3 years old) with a gun. They found an unloaded shotgun in the access to the crawlspace.

Daytona Beach, FL

Traffic stop for a warrant. Sgt Richie Maher stops this guy for an outstanding warrant. In part of his search, he found a pill container on his keychain. This was a segmented pill container, which the police called it had a “Secret compartment”.

Alright, I have a problem with this, and that is that it does NOT have a hidden compartment, it is designed to carry multiple medications each in a separate compartment.

They take all of his medications out and finger them and put them on the dirty hood of the car. 

This pisses me off, as most medications are extremely high priced and they just ruined this guy’s medications.

As they look up the medications they find one that is ‘Methocarbamol’ and the officers immediately state:

it’s got the word meth on it

I looked it up and Methocarbamol, sold under the brand name Robaxin among others, is a medication used for short-term musculoskeletal pain. it is not controlled.

I personally carry at least one dose of every medication that I take, and several of them are controlled. Just because you find a controlled substance, it doesn’t mean that someone is abusing or selling it. Please calm down and ask some questions, thank you. And before everyone starts flaming me, I totally understand that the situation of the interaction with the police plays a huge factor in how the cops react.

Richland County, SC

Capt Danny Brown and Cpl Bryce Hughes have someone pulled over into a gas station. They find a crap ton of drugs and paraphilia and a baby is in the car.

Deputy: “Every inch of this car has metho or cocaine use items in here along with the ecstasy we pulled from it

Crime of the Night

It seems that most people do not understand the laws about videotaping or taking photos. Basically, the law is that if it is in public and anyone can see it, then the photographer/videographer does not require permission to film. Here is an article about Photographer’s Rights.
