Not a hilarious encounter, but I got a kick out of it after it was said and done with.

Just about 2 street from my house I get pulled over. Mind you I had just stopped at a stop sign and was 'gingerly' accelerating in 3rd gear, then coasted into neutral over the crest of a hill (it's 1am so wth, not really in a hurry)

officer: "where you going in such a rush?"
me: "??? What do you mean? I'm not in a rush? Im just going home."
officer: "what was that you threw out the window?"
me: ???!!! "I didn't throw anything out the window..."
officer: "Yeah, I saw you throw something out the window, and paced you going 50 mph down the road. So what did you throw out the window? Looked like a doobie!"
Me: Really? That's funny because I have been data logging my trip home and it will prove that I didn't exceed 37 mph (speed limit is 35), and my windows were up the whole time until you pulled me over... Also, I work for the DoD and get drug tested all the time. Not likely to be smoking any "doobies". Can you smell any?"
officer: What's with the attitude?!
me: ...
officer: I'll be right back.
3 minutes later
officer: OK, just slow it down a little. And by the way, that's a nice car
me: Thanks, I appreciate that... (muttered douche under my breathe as he returned to his cruizer).

Seriously, paced me at 50 mph in a 1/4 mile when he just flew up on my ass from nowhere and I was right around the speed limit... "looks fast" comes to mind. not sure where the whole "I saw you throw something out the window. It looked like a doobie." came from, but wth. Thanks for pulling me over 2 blocks from my house!
