I don't spend much time hanging out with the Richmond police besides the occasional pass off liquid energy to a few regulars who come in to Buzzy's, but I got a quick lesson in law enforcement the other night.
I was driving up Broad toward Church Hill when I went to make a left turn. I signaled and was waiting for the oncoming traffic to clear, except that the oncoming car started slowing down. I quickly realized it was a police car. I was wondering why they were slowing but then the car turned on it's lights and stopped flush with my window. I rolled down my window thinking "Is it not legal to turn left on green in Richmond? Did they finally figure out it was me that once escaped the VCU parking structure without paying my $3.25 when I didn't know it was only for monthly card holders only?"
Nope. This rather handsome police officer said instead, "Your lights are off." I responded with something along the lines of "oh my gosh. Thank you so much." But what I really wanted to say was, "Holy crap, you are the hottest police officer I've ever seen. Stop into Buzzy's sometime." Alas, that was it. He told me to have a good night and my 15 second romance ended as quickly as it started.
