Texas Stats Troopers.
Please disregard any spelling or grammar errors I dont wanna check over it.
So here's the story. I'll give you a little back ground info first. I am 22 years old, on a 07 cbr600rr geared up, US army backpack and I went from Dallas to Wichita falls on my bike to visit some friends. 2h 20min in a car little under 2 on a bike.
also I have never been arrested and have a fully clean rec.
So after the uneventful ride there and a good stay I decided to leave. It was around 1PM on Monday. As I was going through one of the main streets in this small town I passed a Texas State Trooper and not thinking much of it and not worrying b/c I was not speeding just on the way to get gas/air and start on the trip back so I whipped into the gas station. Right as I pulled up to the air pump i heard the sirens and was already boxed in by the trooper. Now I know I did not use a blinker so I knew I was in the wrong. He got out of the car walked to me, told me why I was stopped and talked a tad then asked for my ID and what not. Now of course I have insurance but was unable to locate it at the time and I thought my inspection was good till DEC of this year not last year (bike is knew to me). So I am up to 3 tickets right now, we keep talking he ask my whole story, if i have a job etc etc. Asked if i have ever been arrest and I told him about my most recent ticket and we had a good laugh. I asked if he could work with me and said if everything checks out we will see.
He went to his car and I was standing in heat geared up and asked him if I could stand behind the car in the shade, he said no but I could take my stuff on and come sit in the car. I walked over to the car and instead of getting into the back he had me sit in the front seat. (Let me say some really cool stuff in there) He check EVERYTHING on me he could. He also made a comment how he was surprised I have never been arrested before. we talked more and he was a really cool guy. He did a few more things * I have been with him for about an hour now* then told me he was printing out my warning. Thinking I was getting a ticket and a warning I was amazed when he showed me a warning for all 3 tickets!!!!!
After signing for the warnings i thought he asked if I had anymore questions and I said no. I was then corrected by him and he said he had a few more questions for me. I said sure go ahead (thinking it was something about my life)
He asked me how much money I have on me and what kind of guys I have. He said I have been asking (weird/nerves) and that he would like to search me and my backpack + everything else. I told him no, that I like my privacy and that I am a good clean boy. He then ask me why I would not allow him to and that he will be calling the drug dog and that his is my chance to come clean. I tell him I have 22$ cash + some receipts to my name LOL and that if he will just let me go he can search my stuff now, I just wanna go home. He tells me that since I said no already that they have to get the dog. 20 min later (about 1 hour 20min so far held) the dog arrives.
The trooper said I could wait in the car or get out, I wanted to be outside for this. I stepped out, the other trooper that turned out to be his Sargent said hello shook my hand asked me my story again and then told me he was going to run the dog and that I need to come clean now. He then pulls the dog out and runs it all around the gas station, behind the fence beside my bike all around the bike, then across all my stuff and me.
Of course the dog found nothing, they came over and told me he found nothing but really like me and my gloves so they would like to go ahead and search me. (one cop in front of me and 2nd already behind me with his hands on me) I said since they have been so nice to me so far that they can and of course I come up clean. The first thing he grabbed from me was my wallet and quickly asked if he could search it. I said since he has it in his hands already go for it (was funny when it only had 22$ and some receipts lol). They then walk over to my bike and pull off my back seat and start to pop off plastics, but quickly stopped. Last thing they did was walk over and pull all of the pads out of my helmet then just set it on the ground.
I guess finally after 1hour and 30min + they where happy that I was not a super drug runner, shook my hand and left.....
I am not mad b/c I got 3 warning but dang guys sometimes we get profiled very hard.
