A police officer pulls a Navy Chief over for speeding and has the
Officer: May I see your driver's license?
Navy Chief Petty Officer: I don't have one. I had it suspended when I
got my 5th DUI.
Officer: May I see the owner's card for this vehicle?
Navy Chief: It's not my car. I stole it.
Officer: The car is stolen?
Navy Chief: That's right. But come to think of it, I think I saw the
owner's card in the glove box when I was putting my gun in there.
Officer: There's a gun in the glove box?
Navy Chief: Yes sir. That's where I put it after I shot and killed
woman who owns this car and stuffed her in the trunk.
Officer: There's a BODY in the TRUNK?!?!?
Navy Chief: Yes, sir.
Hearing this, the officer immediately called his captain. The car was
quickly surrounded by police, and the captain approached the driver to
handle the tense situation:
Captain: Sir, can I see your license?
Navy Chief: Sure. Here it is.
It was valid.
Captain: Whose car is this?
Navy Chief: It's mine, officer. Here's the owner's card.
The driver owned the car.
Captain: Could you slowly open your glove box so I can see if there's a
Navy Chief: Yes, sir, but there's no gun in it.
Sure enough, there was nothing in the glove box.
Captain: Would you mind opening your trunk? I was told you said there's a
body in it.
Navy Chief: No problem.
Trunk is opened; no body.
Captain: I don't understand it. The officer who stopped you said you told
him you didn't have a license, stole the car, had a gun in the glove box,
and that there was a dead body in the trunk.
Navy Chief: Yeah, I'll bet the lying s.o.b. said that I was speeding,
