Police Officer Pulls Over Speeder Running Late For A Presentation And Ties His Tie Read
A University of Wisconsin-Stout student pulled over for speeding last month near campus was rushing to give a presentation and didn’t know how to tie his necktie.
ccording to the Menomonie Police Department, Officer Martin Folczyk spotted the student speeding down 8th Street at 8:55 a.m. on the morning of Nov. 30 and initiated the stop.
“I have to get a tie tied,” the driver said. “I have a presentation and I thought my buddy was home but he’s not, and I’m running behind.”
Before asking for his license and insurance, the officer asked the student for his tie, then loosely tied it around his own neck before handing it back.
“While I do this, why don’t you grab your proof of insurance and your driver’s license real quick,” Officer Folczyk said. “Probably not the best knot, but it will work.”
“Better than what I was going to do,” the student said. “Thank you so much.”
The student was given a verbal warning.
