The tempo of this episode was really off, it was slow, with nothing really exciting happening. Lots of traffic stops, and open-ended incidents, which the police will have to follow up on later.
The first incident in Spotsylvania was a traffic stop on Rutherford Drive by 1ST Sergeant Ray Pittman for expired license plate tags. Everything is chill and Pittman even tells the driver that the license plate cover either needs to be removed or cleaned as it is obstructing the view of the plate. Deputy Pittman asks about the vehicle registration and suggests that it might be in the glovebox as that is where most people have it. Off camera, the passenger opens the glove box and a grip for a pistol is visible. Immediately the situation turns from friendly to potentially deadly, as Deputy Pittman unholsters his sidearm and orders the driver and passenger to put their hands on the dash and he calls for backup.
Not until the driver is questioned about the gun, does he explain that it is only a lower. Not until the driver has been removed from the car and checked for weapons, does he tell the deputy that he has a CCW.
Rule #1 – Hands on the dash
Rule #2 – Notify the officer that you have a CCW and where your weapon is located
In the end, everything works out and Deputy Pittman lets them go with a verbal warning and no arrests are made.
Not more than 5 minutes later, Deputy Pittman is responding to a fight at the AMF Bowling alley. There is a huge police presence and as Deputy Pittman enters the facility, he receives a celebrity welcome, with everyone at the alley being excited to see him. One guy says, “officer Pittman, your awesome, man”. The fight was actually between a father and son. It was a very confusing situation, father talks to the cops, but really doesn’t give any information. It ends with two arrests.
Volusia County, FL
The episode opens with a bad trip in Volusia County Florida, where a guy who ate some mushrooms is having a bad trip and is running to the light. When she gets on the scene she calms him down, gives him some girl scout cookies, and calls for an ambulance. Kudos to Deputy Aleece Duffy, for keeping this guy calm, taking control of the situation, and making sure this guy gets the help and Girl Scout Cookies he deserved.
There was an incident that was recorded earlier, where there was a shoplifter who was screaming and making a big fuss, she was obviously high as hell on something. When the officer arrives, she calls him all sorts of names.
He asks for her name and birthday and she screams at him more than once “Find the fuck out!“
If I would have said that I will suck your dick, I bet you would have let me go.
Then she tried to state that she has already done that for him more than once.
She kicks him and he states don’t kick me and she says, you think you’re good enough for me to kick you, get a real job.
“What, your balls are that small that you had to wear a uniform for people to take you seriously?”
Then she starts to strut for the camera.
As they try to load her in the van, she is screaming as loud as she can for someone to please help her
And throughout the incident, the officer remained professional the entire time. Good Job!
Richland County, SC
We end tonight’s episode with a high-speed chase involving Corporal Lamontre Williams and Corporal Anthony Morrow and many other officers from Richland County Sherrif’s Department. Speeds were in excess of 100 MPH, and it ended in a crash. When asked why he ran, his license was suspended.
