so last night we decided to go to in-n-out with eye alaska and anarbor after our show in tucson. so since i don’t eat red meat, dylan and i decided to walk to mcdonald’s which was about a quarter mile down the road. we proceeded to jaywalk, and as we got to the center median, i noticed there was a cop in his truck right in front of us as we were breaking the law. i stopped and told dylan, and we waited at that center median for a good 30 seconds trying to decide what we should do, but saw no other option to cross the road. so we crossed, and as we were passing the cop car, he yells “get over here!” .. so we walk to his car and he starts questioning us asking, “do you know what jaywalking is..” and other smartass comments like that. dylan and i explain that we were just trying to get to mcdonalds and had no other way to cross the street because we came from in n out. well this cop then says, “HA i was just fucking with you..let me hook you up..” and right in front of us he calls mcdonalds (who apparently was closed) and tells them to open up the dining room for us because we turned down in n out to come there instead. the cop then finds out we are a band, and after we get our mcdonalds he gives us a ride in his cop car back to the in n out and asks for a cd. he makes us all sign it, and then gives us all of his contact info to send him our new stuff. to say the least, i have never met a nicer guy in my entire life, nonetheless a cop. and the look on brian’s face when dylan and i got let out of the back of a cop car was priceless.
if you ever meet a cop named calvin in tucson, tell him we say hello :)
