No one likes to be pulled over by the police, but it happens, usually for a good reason.
A woman named Christy vented about her “awful” experience being pulled over on the police department’s Facebook page.
Unfortunately for her, what she wrote was not exactly the truth.
In her post, Christy claims that she was pulled over for driving merely one mile over the speed limit and that the officer kept her for almost 20 minutes, causing her to be late for work and lose her new job.
She writes on the police department’s public page, “So this morning I was pulled over for going 1 mile over the speed limit which I know was his job, but I explained I could not be late to work and would take a ticket if it got me out of there.
The officer kept me for 19 minutes causing me to loss [sic] my new job. Now I would like to know can he help me pay rent or a car payment, or will he even care if I’m homeless at the end of the month since I have been looking work for 3 months!”
In her one-star review, Christy comes across as the victim of an over-zealous police officer.
She even asks for compensation!
However, Christy soon learns that honesty would have been the best policy in this case.
Someone at the Owasso Police Department read Christy’s low review and made some corrections to her claims.
They write, “Interesting take on the event Christy. Your claims are very serious but more alarmingly very false. You were stopped for traveling 57mph in a 45mph zone in which you received a WARNING. You failed to keep insurance on your vehicle which is cause for your vehicle to be towed.
The very generous police officer allowed you time enough to contact your insurance agency and update your insurance policy over the phone, to which you did and were then allowed to leave. So, to sum up, this officer gave you a warning for speeding, didn’t tow your car and allowed you to contact your insurance to update your policy. Was there anything else this officer could have done for you?
Perhaps you meant to score our review higher?”
Christy removed her exaggerated and false review, but the damage was done and the commenters had nothing but praise for the wrongfully-accused police department.
“That was the best rebuttal I have ever read,” writes Dylan Stevens.
“5 stars from Alabama. Great job and response to the little liar, liar pants on fire. Professionalism at its finest. Thank you for your service. Keep up the great work!” says Kevin Hawkins.
The Owasso Police Department’s post even found its way to Ireland!
“This has reached Ireland,” writes Martina Lavin, “Made my day the way you owned that silly liar. Well done and as we say in rural Ireland, ‘keep her lit’!”
