Excellent Adventure  
2000 Personal Account

I have been a police officer over 26 years. The perps involved in this incident avoided falling into your Reproduction category by sheer luck.

Three fun-loving youths decided to go for a ride around town one evening while huffing spray cans. For those of you who are not familiar with the word, huffing is inhaling aerosol spray fumes. The propellent gives the huffer that sought after lack of sobriety.

These three huff three cans of aerosol with the windows closed to increase the concentration. Then one of the three geniuses reaches for a cigarette, and lights up. The resulting explosion literally blew the tops of the doors, 3" from the roofline; and bent the roof outwards in a rounded bubble. And blew the trunk lid outwards to match the roof.

In spite of their general hatred of the police, these three torched toughs peeled into the station parking lot while I was on the desk. They were sure glad to see the police. All three have been hospitilized. © 1994 - 2020
