VIDEOS OF THE DAY: What To (Not?) Do If You Ever Get Pulled Over
March 30, 2012

Ideally, getting pulled over by the police is something that you will never have to deal with. But every now and then it happens. So what's the best thing to do if it does?

There are two videos making the rounds today that show two very different approaches. In the first, a man dressed as Batman, driving a Lamborghini Batmobile with no visible plates near Washington D.C., gets pulled over by police. As it turns out, driving a cool car and dressing like a superhero - and being polite and co-operative, of course - is a good way to interact with the authorities:

On the other hand, the man in this video, who seems to have been taken in by the RCMP for public intoxication, finds a novel way to express his discontent - by treating officers to a complete serenade of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody":

Is singing a good way to endear yourself to an arresting officer? Hard to say; once his serenading is complete, the man quickly returns to co-operative politeness, which is ALWAYS a good idea.
