Well if this doesn’t beat all, I am at a loss for what will. Police officers generally get suspicious if you avoid eye-contact with them; but according to one man, the excuse a Dayton police officer used for tailing him before he eventually pulled him over, was because he did make direct eye contact with him.
Sheesh, talk about being damned if you do, damned if you don’t!
I’ll give you a minute to shake your head.
John Felton, (pictured) who previously lived in Ohio, but has since moved to Michigan, was pulled over in front of his mom’s house. Though he was initially told by the officer that he allegedly activated his turn signal less than 100 feet before making a right turn, he suspected there was more to this because it was hard to believe he would be stopped for such a shallow technicality.
Felton probed a bit deeper, asking the officer for the real reason he was followed for several blocks and eventually pulled over.
“Because you made direct eye contact with me and held onto it when I was passing you,” the officer responded.
Wanna bet he said this with a straight face.
