Grandma told by police to return footballs kicked into her garden- or she could be charged with theft

Ms Freeman says two Humberside Police officers came to her house in Bridlington, Yorkshire, after her neighbours complained that she had failed to return two balls kicked into her garden the previous day.
...
Her neighbour, who did not want to be named, admitted that the balls had been kicked over the wall, but said her children, aged 11 and six, were too scared to go and retrieve them.

Sorry to laugh, but I can't get over the fact that they sent Humberside officers to deal with a case of petty theft. Methinks I've been watching too many detective shows.

Goober, after surveying the batch of stories you just posted, I'd love to take a peek at your bookmark file. Where do you find these things?

Back on topic: cops have super drug-detecting abilities.

Officer Carroll: "You're giving me indicators that you have consumed marijuana, okay? So at this time, I believe that your failure to maintain lane was the reason for that -- so you're being placed under arrest for DUI, okay?"

The prosecutor filed a dismissal of the DUI-drug charge five months later: "Defendant performed well on FSEs (Field Sobriety Evaluations) and blood and urine were negative."

If the lab comes up negative, does that mean the cop was wrong?  No, it's science that is fallible!

"Yeah, that's what they said," Ebner replied. "The test results were wrong, and also, if I had a urine test, it would have come back positive for drugs."

But Katelyn got her own urine test the same week as her arrest -- scanning for any metabolites that would still be in her system. The urine test was also negative for marijuana -- or other drugs.

But that corruption happens ten stories above a beat cop's paygrade. The less seen the better.
