A Raynham Police Officer
The tirade goes on without the officer saying anything.
When he gets done with writing the ticket he puts an "AH" in the lower right corner of the narrative portion of the ticket. He then hands it to the violator for his signature. The guy signs the ticket angrily, and when presented with his copy points to the "AH" and demands to know what it stands for.
The Raynham Police Officer says, "That's so when we go to court, I'll remember that you're an Asshole!"
Two months later they're in court. The violator has such a bad driving record he is about to lose his license and has hired a lawyer to represent him. On the stand the officer testifies to seeing the man run the red light. Under cross examination the defense attorney asks, "Officer, is this a reasonable facsimile of the ticket you issued my client?"
Officer responds, "Yes sir, that is the defendant's copy, his signature and mine, same number at the top.
Lawyer: "Officer, is there any particular marking or notation on this ticket you don't normally make?"
Officer: "Yes sir, in the lower right corner of the narrative there is an "AH," underlined."
Lawyer: "What does the AH stand for, officer?"
Officer: "Aggressive and Hostile, Sir."
Lawyer: "Aggressive and Hostile?"
Officer: "Yes, Sir.
Lawyer: "Officer, are you sure it doesn't stand for Asshole?"
Officer: "Well Sir, You know your client better than I do!"
