Well passed all the initial testing and am/soon to be in bacjground investigation now. EXCEPT, out of sheer stupidity and clouded by my excitement that I passed the board interview, I ran a red light and got ticketed. First time pulled over and first ticket ever. I plan on going the defensive driving route and really hope this doesn't affect my application. Feel like a dumbass.

On a lighter note, ya'll were right on the polygraph. I was worried about it, but got over it and passed.

I got a speeding ticket two days after being accepted to the academy.

Ah well, shit happens.

I wouldn't worry about it. Yeah, your gonna take some good natured ribbing. You would from the group that I work with anyway. Are you sure that we aren't related? I am tortured by fate in a similar fashion. You are not alone. Good luck.

Thanks for the encouragement guys. I really hate doing stupid stuff and this just takes the cake for me. The excitement over the board was a little too much. I had fully expected to fail after it was over, but I passed.
