Before I got pulled over...

I had some fun puddle hunting on the dirt road down the street from me.

Yeah I got pulled over for reckless driving and going off the road. The dude hugely over exsadurated what I was doing. Almost lost my license for two years with $2000 in fines. I was stoked when he let me off.

Yeah I was doing no more then 30 on the road and I went to the other side twice...I could have done MUCH worse on a dirt road. Guy was a jerk, but eh was nice enough to let me go :) So I waved at him when he drove past my house.

When I do play out there I always look for cops, but I guess I got spotted by a chopper in the sky because I never once saw his big o ford expedition.

He was probably just threatening the reckless driving ticket to scare you away from doing whatever you were doing. Plus, a reckless driving ticket is hard for officers to give because of the things they have to prove in their report/testimony if it is fought.

He was driving recklessly in front of a cop. The cop gave him a warning instead of a $2,000 fine. And the cop is a jerk?

I went right off the side of the road twice to drive through some big puddles and twice while driving down the road I went to the left side to hit some small amounts of mud.

But plans for the truck? To push it as far as this little 2.5 stocker will go. Till I buy it from my grandparents this winter. Then I'll lay some money into. No real plans yet because I don't want to get to over hyped for it before I buy my new DD.

The cop was no where to be seen. I believe a police helicopter called it in. Because I was pulled off the side of the road for like 10 minutes before I even hit the dirt road. I was hitting a big mud puddle. He didn't get to me till 3-4 miles down the road. Plus I never broke 35... Oh after hitting the dirt road about 2 miles in I pulled right off the road for one more puddle.

Why is he a "dick head"? It sounds as though he was pretty relaxed about the whole ordeal based on what he could have done...

a ******** that lets him go? the cop probably over exaggerated what he was doing as a scare tactic since he knew he was going to let him go, give him a scare so that he wont do it again and end up getting a leo with no discretion if he gets caught again

Guy wasn't a dick imo. The guy let him off with a slap on the wrist. There any houses near this? People could have called in, officer lives by, etc? Most people don't approve of playing just off the road and screwing around. Just takes one person to call in, and a hair of bad luck.

We were out last weekend on some trails and ended up in a recreational park (lake mead). We were kinda screwed because we ended up behind a locked gate, so we tried to go around and get on the road...park ranger was right there. (crap). He checked us out, told us to go back where we came from. Fair enough for me!

Would you please explain to me by what thought process you came to that conclusion?
