During a routine patrol, an RCMP patrolman parked down the street outside a Legion Hall in Saskatchewan.
After last call, the officer observed a man leaving the Legion Hall. The
gentleman was so intoxicated that he could barely walk. He then stumbled around
the parking lot for a few minutes, with the officer quietly observing. After
what seemed an eternity and trying his keys on five different vehicles, the man
managed to find his car, which he fell into.
He sat there for a few minutes and then threw a hook and line out the window and
seemed to be trying to catch a fish. A number of other patrons paid no attention
to this crazy drunk as they left the bar and drove off. Finally the drunk
started the car, switched the wipers on and off (it was a fine, dry summer
night) flicked the blinkers on and off a couple of times, honked the horn, and
switched on the headlights.
He then pulled in the hook and line and moved the vehicle forward a few inches,
reversed a little and then remained still for a few more minutes as some more of
the other patron vehicles left. At last, the parking lot was empty; he pulled
out of the parking lot and started to drive slowly down the road.
The officer, having patiently waited all this time, now started up the patrol
car, put on the flashing lights, and promptly pulled the man over. He performed
a breathalyzer test on the gentleman who cooperated fully, and to his amazement
the breathalyzer indicated no evidence of the man having consumed any alcohol at
Dumbfounded, the officer said, “I’ll have to ask you to accompany me to headquarters. This breathalyzer equipment must be broken.”
“I doubt it,” said the truly proud Saskie. “Tonight I’m the designated decoy.”
