    ST. GEORGE, Utah -- Driving to the emergency room is no excuse for refusing
    to stop for police.

    At least that's what Utah Highway Patrol Trooper Ben Lang says. Lang
    arrested a man at a hospital after he wouldn't pull over.

    The man had shot himself in the leg with a nail gun. Lang said the driver was
    reacting to the emotion of an emergency, but didn't have the right to act like
    he was driving an ambulance.

    The trooper added that it would have taken just a minute or two for the driver
    to explain the situation.

    There are some major arterys in the leg... you could bleed to death from a nail in the right spot if you let it go long enough

    I always wonder what would have happened if a cop had pulled me over while I was driving my dad to the emergency room when he cut his fingers off. I was driving like an EMT, doing all kinds of ****. I don't think I would have pulled over.

    "a minute or two?" when you got a ****ing nail in your leg, that's an eternity.

    when I blew myself up a year ago, my dad came by my work, picked me up, brought me by the house so he could pick me up some spare clothes and then slowly drove to the hospital. between the initial accident and me running through the e.r. doors was probably an hour. I wanted to get there asap, but NOOOOOO. "it's not that serious." **** a horse it's not that serious! jaysus! I'm still mad at him over that. :mad:

    That's one instance when the officer would have been cordially invited to suck my balls.

    I watched a story on TV a while ago about an old man who was driving his very sick wife to the hospital. He was driving like 90-100 mph. A trooper pulled him over and lectured on how he was driving like a maniac and he should arrest him. After about 30 min he let the man go to the hospital, where his wife died that night. Thats some ****ing bullshit. **** the power-hungry "not in my town" cops! I hope that guy gets millions...
