The New Trend in Law Enforcement

 - Mar 18, 2007
The Orlando, FL, Police Department built itself a pot of gold over the holiday weekend, when a sheriff's deputy dressed as a leprechaun, and accompliced by motorcycle backup was spotting and ticketing speeders.

A laser detector at the leprechaun's patrol car read "Watch your speed or it will cost you your pot of gold." Folks, who were exceeding the limit and didn't slow down after passing the sign, were chased down by other aqueous sprites on motorcycles and given speeding tickets.

Speeders complained to the deputy saying that the tactic was entrapment. However, a bad Santa's elf did the same thing at Christmas time and the deputy stood his ground.
