I was driving down I-380 last night going home and I saw this weird light around my car, I thought WTF is going on here? I looked around all I could see was a car behind me. My speed was 65 right the limit and the car behind me was not police car with lights on. Then I looked up in the sky and saw the police helo spotting what I thought to be me, but when the car behind me passed the light followed him. Whew!!!! then I saw some fast moving headlights behind me sure enough a police cruiser turned on lights and sirens and pulled the car that passed me over. First time I have seen a helo in action kinda freaked me out. They should be a little more careful not to Freak my ass out!!!! How was your night?

Poseur! A real ARFCOMer would have drawn down and plugged the offending spotlight.

Thought about giving the bird. If they did want me I did not want to make it worse!!

I had who I think was the Wildlife Commission circling our hunting property the other day in one of their helos. Probably looking for corn in the duck ponds.

I was wondering who the hell it was but after checking them out through my rifle scope I couldn't see their markings Is that usually a bad idea ? It was a black helicopter no less



(That is a joke about the rifle scope by the way I used my binoculars )

Was it a "black" helo?

It was the Cedar RapidsPolice Dept. They have the only helo in a Police department in Iowa. I also have an application in with them testing in January. So flipping the bird may be a bad idea. Unless they have a good sense of humor.

Did they ask to check your shopping bag?

That things bright, ain't it? They don't call it the "Night Sun" for nothing. I had one shine on me once or twice while standing in front of my house when I lived in Tucson. It was a rough neighborhood...the ghetto bird was out over El Cortez Heights every single night.

That's why you should always carry a laser pointer with you.
