Spotsylvania is on Reelz TV - Episode 57

First and foremost, I want to thank you all for the outstanding work you do every single day. Feel free to seek me out for any assistance that I may be able to offer. If you need a cold drink on a hot day, just knock and I or someone from my family will come to your aid. You have a thankless job, that many people do not understand. Thank you

Spotsylvania County, Virginia (where I reside) is being featured on On Patrol: Live, from December 2 through Feb 4, 2023 (we have been extended for a while longer). 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 S01E57 broadcast on February 17, 2023. Camera crews tagged along with Sergeant T.J. Grasso and Deputy Tristen Burnette. 

** 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.

This episode had several periods of technical difficulties, where the stream froze. The next day, On Patrol:Live stated that it was on their end and they had it fixed.

Beech Grove, IN

This episode opens with a Pursuit in Beech Grove, Indiana. It started with a stop-off-camera for speeding. At one point early in the chase, the guy stops and yells at Sergeant Brandon Shipley “You’re in violation” and then takes off again. We see a fair number of pursuits on this show, averaging at least one per episode, usually more. We watch 3 hours of eight departments across the country. That means that there are a large number of people trying to get away from the police. And if this show is any indication, yeah, that doesn’t happen often.

So this genius takes the police on a wild ride, stopping at a house. It turns out that was his house and he was dragged out by the police and arrested, all while yelling “You’re in violation” and “where’s my lawyers”. I think this guy isn’t all way there mentally.

Volusia County, FL

We roll to Volusia County, FL with a report of a robbery then an assault. It was confusing and we didn’t get a full picture of what is going on, and that can happen with live shows like this.

Berkeley County, SC

We cut to Berkeley County, SC for a traffic stop which turns into, dare I say it, a pursuit. The dude takes a page out of the Beech Grove guy and stops at a house. He bails and leaves his dog in the truck. As they are looking for visible evidence, the camera focuses on the “I support local police” sticker in the back window. Kudo to animal control, she was so gentle and compassionate with the scared dog. The dog was safe and they get their man, of course.

Richland County, SC

We cut quickly to Officer Danny Brown, where things rapidly happen, and things get strange really fast as well.

As the officer is taking the suspect into custody, we see the suspect, throw a gun, and then put something under the car next to him. The lady in the car must be scared shitless. As he has the guy in custody, some dude appears in the hallway outside the hotel and starts to piss in the corner right in front of the cop.

“If you are pissing put it away and go away, man”
“I didn’t have no gun, you lie”

The good thing is that no one was hurt in this very volatile situation.

Spotsylvania, VA

In Spotsylvania, Sergeant T.J. Grasso, makes a traffic stop for a DUI on Meadowview Drive, after a field sobriety test and a breathalyzer Deshawn Rhamaj Suggs was arrested.

Daytona Beach, FL

Officer Richie Maher at Daytona Beach, Florida, rolls up on a guy “watching the blimp over the race track”. Officer Maher asked the guy why are his pants pulled down. The guy said that is on. The funny part is that Officer Maher asked the guy to hold his driver’s license as he didn’t want to touch it, as he wasn’t sure what the guy was doing in the van, LOL.

Wilkes-Barre, PA

A call for a man walking on the train tracks comes into Wilkes-Barre, PA 911. Office Mike Dennis finds the guy and while questioning him and searching him and his bag, the guy who is being detained, shouts

“This has been my dream, well except for cops”
“Can I get a copy of this? Come on man”
“Where’s Dan Abrahms at”
“Can I get a Dan Abrahms autograph”

Spotsylvania, VA

We cut to Spotsylvania with Deputy Tristen Burnett on a traffic stop at the Four Mile Fork Center in front of Ollie’s Outlet. The couple were on their way to the ABC store that they said closes in 20 minutes. The store actually closes at 9, and it aired around 10:15.

Other Locations

There were a large number of incidents tonight, so I’m going to focus more on Spotsylvania for the rest of this post. I will put a high level of most events, except for a few more that I liked.

And we knew we had to have one in this episode, and that is a stolen U-Haul (U-Haul should be paying OPL for sponsorship, lol). This time the stolen U-Haul was in Daytona Beach, FL. When they arrested the driver, all he was worried about taking a pee. “Please, dude please don’t make me piss on myself. I told you everything I knew. I have to piss really bad”, the passenger was all worried about the search of her person

“Don’t you touch my vaginia…bitch”.

Earlier in Beech Grove, Indiana we have a stolen car, the guy driving it, wasn’t aware it was stolen, he just traded his Ford Escape some 30-40 minutes earlier for the stolen truck. A funny conversation took place when the police were searching the truck. They asked him about the meth in the truck and if it was his. He said he doesn’t know anything about it,

“what meth? The meth in the ashtray?”

End of story, dumbass, you just admitted you knew about the meth.

Nye County, NV

Nye County was very quiet tonight, and then out of no where. Earlier in Nye County, NV, we have another pursuit, this time it was a Ford F-150 pickup, driven by a 17 year old, who was a suspect for a robbery (flowers for his girlfriend). The pursuit ends with a totalled F-150 and someone suddenly missing half of their garage.

Richland County, SC

In Richland County, we have a young black male that is scared to death. They have him detained and he starts to ramble.

“Lord, now I’m in handcuffs”

“This is not my fucking year, fucking hell”
“Now they gonna take me to jail, then that’s it”
“Somebody going to stab me”
“Can I hit my vape?”
“Can you give me a hug?”
“I’m pretty, they gonna say your pretty man, hold my pocket”

They find some weed, but they let him go.

Then my picture froze as did everyone else watching, the next day they state that Reelz had an issue streaming.

Spotsylvania, VA

I froze for a long time and when I came back we were heading to an earlier call in Spotsylvania with Deputy Justin Sullivan, he heads to Melchirs court and he follows the incident of a scorned lover, who goes to her boyfriend’s house and she tazes his wife. He ends up going to Main Street and arrests the girlfriend.

Spotsylvania, VA

We end with Deputy Tristen Burnett in Spotsylvania for a traffic stop at the Sheetz on Lafayette Blvd, he finds a guy parked in the parking lot doing his college homework.

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.
