Hard to tell, huh? The flashing lights are the only give away (other than the plate, but you see that too late).

Deputy dressed as leprechaun arrests speeders on Florida road

The Columbus Dispatch

Friday, March 16, 2007

Orange County sheriff’s deputy Richard Lockman, dressed as a leprechaun, uses a laser device to clock speeders in Orlando, Fla.

ORLANDO, Fla. — There was no pot of gold behind the dancing roadside leprechaun, only speeding tickets.

Dozens of drivers in the Orlando area found out the hard way yesterday after passing an Orange County sheriff’s deputy dressed as a leprechaun and warning drivers to slow down. A laser detector clocked cars above his sign reading “Watch your speed or it will cost you your pot of gold,” and several officers on motorcycles chased those who didn’t heed the advice.

Deputy Richard Lockman said police had been giving out about a ticket a minute since 8 a.m. He was dressed in a green leprechaun outfit with a hat, tight white knickers and a fake red beard.

Lockman did the same thing with a Christmas elf outfit in December. Speeders complained that being stopped by a deputy in costume was entrapment.

“I think that’s just ridiculous,” Lockman said. “The elf didn’t force anybody to speed.”

Worst news I heard today

Sheriff Joe’s boys are driving these now.

Yes, those things do have Hemis. Dammit. So much for me winning on World’s Least Fair to the Cops Police Chases.
