Usually a good rule of thumb is to not threaten a cop. It'll never work, and it'll never lead to a good a outcome. Just don't do it. If you don't believe me listen to this: an Illinois man found himself behind bars after calling 911 to report a fight that he wanted to have with a police officer.

John dialed 911 to say he needed to have cops sent to his home because he wanted to fight them. The dispatcher, eager to keep a citizen happy, obliged and sent a pair of deputies to John's home, leading him to immediately start fighting with them. The 38-year-old remains behind bars, charged with aggravated battery, resisting a police officer, and battery with intent to provoke or insult.

Like I said, fights with cops will never work. Enter tonight's Idiot @ 8 keyword “fight” inside the Classic Reward Club and Casino for your chance to win dinner from The Soda Fountain in Remsen.
