I'm in the mood to hear what GB member actually got in trouble with the law.

For me long story short. Years ago I was skipping school in my backyard. My next door neighbor thought I was a burglar and called the cops on me. Afterwards lets just say I had a pretty bad day.

I once almost hit somebody in the middle of winter when there was no visibility. However, he was so drunk that the police didn't even give me an official warning.

More interestingly, I once bought a set of speakers from value village for my friends to use a parties. They were really heavy and sounded awful, but I figured they were just bad. They sat in a friends dorm for something like 5 months. When I brought them home I left them sitting in the front hall, but tripped over them in the dark. The next morning I found child pornography all over my floor. Being all responsible I brought them in to the cops. Not exactly trouble, but that was a weird day.

I climbed on top of my school like 8 years ago but the cops just said "get down." and then laughed when we got down, wondering how we got up there and sent us on our way. Cops in my hometown are pretty great.

I regret NOTHING!

#17 Posted by falserelic (5334 posts) -

When you fuck over the law and kill a cop. You will receive a world full of pain and regret. You'll end up like this poor soul.

Sure, I've even been to court. It's an interesting experience when your lawyer says "You're probably going to be found guilty" on your first meeting with him.

I'm keeping it real, man.

Or was that one of those "when keeping it real goes wrong" incidents? I could never tell.

#19 Posted by Somnus (81 posts) -

They have never caught me...

Yeah that can be pretty scary. The most recent vid I seen where someone was found guilty was this. If I was in his shoes I'll probably pass out too.

How much trouble we talking here? If it's not that much trouble then A, C, and D are all valid answers for me. But most of them were about dumb kid stuff. Worst I ever got from the cops was a talking to and they took my paintball gun away. Oh now that I think of it, that was all after a brief car chase... I regret nothing! Except being caught! Also damnit I was innocent! At least of any paintball related crimes they accused me of.

@TaliciaDragonsong: ...

Never mind. Too scared to say anything.

@nintendoeats: Oh sure, the old I found the child pornography in some speakers I bought for a friends party routine. Like anyone would fall for that.

#22 Posted by Cincaid (2953 posts) -

Was arrested for possession and personal use of marijuana back in high school. I didn't even smoke that often, like once every month if even that, but a dude at my school who was deeply addicted was arrested first, and then basically named every kid in school he knew that was using it so he would get a milder sentence.

I had to attend court (which was embarrassing as all hell) and was sentenced to a 30 day fine, around $300 or so in total. These days I'm too old and goody-two-shoes to be smoking reefer, I just stick to getting drunk like everyone else.

I was prosecuted by our government. Short story, I defended myself over 2 trials, over 2 years, the government lost when I had the case dismissed pre-trial and they apologised to me and made me a confidential and substantial settlement. I won't go into details. That is my only brush with the law outside one speeding charge.

Reading that reminded me of the T'V show Law&Order. But I'm glad things was able to workout for you.

The worst I have gotten is a traffic ticket for speeding once. That reminds me I need to renew my registration.

@falserelic: Though my outcome was not as bad. I got into a drunk fight one night outside a bar, punched a guy right in the face giving him a mad nose bleed and was immediately jumped by his friends until I suddenly got lifted up by a really strong man who upon closer inspection was a cop. So, I settled down and was polite as a fucking buddhist to the cops all the way to the cell. I was found guilty due to lack of provocation. I was facing a month jail or two month house arrest (but able to go to work) but ended up with 50 hours community service instead mowing the lawn of a soccer club in town. But yeah, I can understand that reaction. When the cops took me to the drunk cell where I spent 8 hours, I felt completely powerless and at the mercy of someone else. At first you're ok, because you're drunk, but after a while you sober up and you feel trapped. Eventually you start pacing the room, doing pushups and trying to think your way away from the situation. By the time they let me out, that walk home was surreal. Not only because I realized how it must, even at a very light scale, feel to be at the mercy of someone else and not be able to leave. But also because I knew the court date was looming.

Eventually I met my lawyer and he basically said I was going down for it, since I punched first and there was not enough evidence of provocation. After that meeting I knew what I could potentially face. I almost cried on the way home, my future felt completely shattered. But, had a meeting with some people who determine what type of individual you are and since I had no prior record and was an overall good citizen they would urge on a lenient punishment such as community service instead of jail. Court was interesting, the entire time the only thing I only really wanted to do was apologize to the guy even though part of me hated him for pressing charges over what was essentially just a dispute that never truly harmed either of us (he got nose bleed but nothing broken).

But yeah, mowing the lawn for 50 hours. I was so polite and dependable that they eventually let me do the job unsupervised and just check off how much I had worked. Which, in retrospect, seems crazy. If I could change it I probably wouldn't, it taught me a lot about myself and probably humbled myself a little bit. In the grand scheme of things, my future wasn't shattered, I was just taught a really big life lesson.

THE JIG IS UP THE NEWS IS OUT THEY FINALLY FOUUND ME

#28 Edited by falserelic (5334 posts) -

@Pezen: Luckily things didn't get any worse for you. I can't imagine myself being locked up. After going to an adult school with people that were mostly ex cons. I've heard lots of disturbing stories about jail. The worse one was hearing about another man biting off a guy's nuts. Hearing stories about prison really made me cautious about the things I do in life.

If the topic is about someone getting in trouble with the law, and the person picked A they probably got caught.

Not necessarily. It's just admission of a "sinful" act. It doesn't imply subsequent incarceration, even if it was witnessed by law enforcement. Meh, never mind.

Thinking about it I probably should of added another option. If someone committed a crime but never got caught.

#37 Posted by Levius (1088 posts) -

I probably got caught by a speeding camera today. So it looks like either a $60 fine, or a £100 speed awareness course to keep the points off my license. Still pissed at myself.

#38 Posted by Chop (1995 posts) -

I once got pulled over by a cop who thought I wasn't wearing my seatbelt! He apologized when he saw that I was and then he left. CLOSE CALL!

#39 Posted by Bwast (1342 posts) -

I stole and I robbed and I kidnapped the President's son and held him for ransom. And I never got caught neither!

I was making something for a film challenge with a couple of friends a few years ago.

They were running around a car park with cap guns sprayed silver pretending to shoot at each other and I was filming. The guns looked pretty real from a distance, but they had big cardboard muzzel flashes stuck in the end of the barrel with "Bang!" written on them (there wasn't any sound as it had to be shot on 8mm film).

We were on the top level and racing to get everything shot before we lost the light, when a car pulls into this mostly deserted car park. I got annoyed because it was in the way and ruining the shot when a guy get's out and starts walking over. He pulls out his badge and let's us know his an undercover police officer. Some people had reported seeing a couple of guys matching our actors descriptions running along the pavement with guns.

We'd mostly shot in secluded locations like the car park and down by a river, but we'd done a couple of long shots next to a busy road so there was no obvious camera equipment. Stupid mistake and we didn't have a sign up to let passing cars know what was going on.

On the outside I was doing my best serious face as he told us he wasn't arresting us and just giving us a warning, but on the inside I was psyched!

After that they drove off and we carried on filming.

TL:DNR - When making a movie with a couple friends using fake guns. police turn up but let us off with a warning.

Yes. Arson and hand to hand combat related incidents.

#42 Posted by PenguinDust (12455 posts) -

This is more indicative of this forum's average age than anything. The more time you spend on Earth, the more opportunity you have to break the law and so the greater the chance of getting caught.

Not that I would know anything about that *cough*.

Nope, although it's not like I wasn't involved in your standard petty vandalism/shop lifting shenanigans when I was a kid.

This is what happens when you fight the law..

As you can tell by the guy expression he was ready to kill somebody. He wasn't even scared about the sentence he was pissed.

#48 Posted by MonetaryDread (1995 posts) -

I break the law about 4-9 times a day. Hell, I can technically be arrested at any point.

#49 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3065 posts) -

I was taken in by the cops three times as a teenager and managed to escape charge all three times.

One of them was a case of attempting to defend a girl that was getting bashed by her boyfriend (she defended him and I took a brick to the side of the head).

One of them involved destroying someone's car due to ...actually I'm not going to talk about that one, but suffice to say it felt justified in the circumstances, but i was extremely lucky not to wind up in gaol for it.

The last one was a case of self defence, but it had broken down into such a massive brawl that they hauled us all in.

#50 Posted by TheJohn (553 posts) -

No. Never. Why do you ask? Are you a cop? You know, you have to tell me if you are!
