I'm not one to throw stones but yesterday morning when I arrived at work at 5:30am there was a college student passed out in his truck w/the engine running. I attempeted to wake him and get it turned off but he was drunk and passed out. I went to the passenger door and opened it up attempting to turn it off again amongst the Bud Light cans and he smacked my arm, put the pedal down to the floor and tried to put it in gear and passed out again so I called the Police. An officer arrived turned the truck off and left. The drunk kid drove off a few minuets later. IS THIS RIGHT?

Ever notice that when we begin a sentence with a phrase like " throw stones, but..." we end up doing exactly what we say we're not?

gbaker, you can go to the police station and file a complaint. LPD will investigate the situation.
