A US policewoman has been suspended after switching on her emergency siren and driving at 110 mph - to get an off-duty colleague to an ice hockey game on time. State trooper Jennifer Schneider was on duty when she learned that Michael Olson had a flat tyre and raced to pick him up. She wanted to take him to the Civic Ice Arena in Eagan, Minnesota, to play for the State Patrol hockey team. But when she reached Mr Olson the 25-year-old allegedly hit a car trying to pull out of her way. Nobody was hurt in the crash, but when police arrived, she claimed to have been chasing a car that ran a red light, according to charges filed this week in Dakota County District Court.

An anonymous tipster later called the State Patrol and asked them to investigate. Schneider, who is on paid leave pending the outcome of the court case, could lose her law-enforcement license if she is convicted of gross-misdemeanour misconduct, said a state police licensing official, reports Star Tribune.

Awwww I want a cop car. I was late to work this morning because of slow people clogging up the right lane. I want sirens!!!

Heres a story about coppers:

My friend Jesse is a cop, and my other friend Steve borrowed Jesses uniform for a costume party. Steve had a bit too much to drink and Jesse left the police notices in his breast pocket so Steve went around town filling them out as Officer Steve and to contact him on his mobile and leaving them on peoples cars and whatnot.
Steve got calls all week asking for 'Officer Steve' and what they had done wrong. It was funny. :D Serves him right.
