Los Angeles, CA – A motorcycle officer with the California Highway Patrol (CHP), has taken upon himself to show us how impartial and strict traffic officers are. After noticing that he went over the speed limit while traveling on a highway, Officer Chip LaMarca, pulled over to the side of the road and commenced to give himself a stern, annoying, and long speech about traffic safety.
After receiving his own admonishment, Officer LaMarca issued himself a traffic citation, which he made sure to sign and comply with. “No one is above the law, not even me. Traffic safety is serious, and I am serious,” said the stiffed-neck LaMarca, while talking to Police Blotter Five-O. The officer’s agency is not surprised about his actions: “He once issued a citation to his own wife for failure to be attractive on state roads,” said Lt. M. Jones, his immediate supervisor. A short history on the officer’s record indicates that he has issued citations to funeral processions for going too slow, to the mailman for driving ugly vehicles, and to firefighters for producing obscene calendars.
The officer’s actions do provide a conflict to the courts, as they don’t know how to have an officer testify against himself in court. But, one thing is for sure: It will be interesting!!
