I read with interest an item in our local paper about a driver who was stopped by the police for not wearing a seat belt. In his glove compartment the police found a unloaded pistol. It was registered to the driver. Apparently, he argued with the police, because these are the charges:
1. Failure to wear a seat belt while driving – first degree.
2. Failure to wear a seat belt while driving – second degree.
3. Failure to wear a seat belt while driving – third degree.
4. Concealing a weapon without a permit to carry a concealed weapon. (It was in his glove compartment.)
5. Failure to properly secure a concealed weapon. (The glove compartment wasn’t locked.)
6. Failure to properly notify police of concealed weapon in a car when stopped for not wearing a seat belt.
7. Failure to fully cooperate with police while they conducted an illegal search of automobile.
8. Making non-verbal faces at police during illegal search of automobile.
9. Failure to not memorize the serial number of a concealed weapon.
10. Failure to have committed a more serious crime worth citing.
Remember to always cooperate with law enforcement officers.
