Hubby’s return to patrol has increased his interactions with colorful people.
He recently arrested someone with a warrant for a decade of unpaid child support. The man claimed he was no longer a US citizen, had mailed his birth certificate to the Treasury Dept. and was now “sovereign’ because of his beefs with our government. Too bad that doesn’t exempt him from back support.
As Hubby was filling out the booking-in forms, he commented “So, you’re not a US citizen, right?” The guy got real quiet and nervous. “OK, I checked ‘not a citizen’. I hope you don’t get deported.”
We and several of Hubby’s co-workers had a good laugh over it.
On a serious note, the guy got what he deserved. I have no respect for men who refuse to support their children.
