Jail Time Continued

“You have a warrant for my arrest?”
“Yes Ma’am”
“For WHAT?”
“Are you new to the state Ma’am?”
“Yes”
“Have you been here over 30 days?”
“Yes”
“Have you been working for more than 30 days?”
“Yes”
“Have you registered your vehicle in the state of Texas?”
“No”
“Well, in the state of Texas, it is mandatory that you register your vehicle within 30 days. Your employer has reported earnings for you and the state knows that you are here. I’m sorry but you will have to come down to the station with me.”

I looked past the officer and see his police car parked against the curb of my street. It’s beginning to dawn on me that he is serious.

Remember that it is fairly late at night and I am in my robe. The officer kindly let me change into some clothes, I grabbed my purse and was escorted to the back seat of the police car. I was scared to death and was SO relieved that he didn’t put handcuffs on me.

I couldn’t believe that this was happening to me. Here I was a very young 20 year old girl, I was VERY far from home and I wanted my DADDY!!!

I was taken to the Mesquite County Jail. My coat was removed, they took my purse and emptied out my wallet to inventory my belongings. I had 23 cents on me.

They had a lady sergeant come to the front office and made me put my hands on the counter and spread my legs while she frisked me. I was fingerprinted and photographed.

Now it was time to take me to my cell.

Darn it! It's one of those to be continued things! Man, you are a tease. Okay, I'll look out for the next post...but can I just say I would have been too scared to get in the cop's car alone? I mean what if he was an impersonator perve? Never mind, I've been watching too many crime shows. Don't keep us hanging too long. The suspense is a killer! :-)

It must be those southern states! I was once pulled over for speeding in Oklahoma and the cop threatened to throw my in jail for 30 days for going 15 over the speed limit.
Are you kidding?
I can't wait to hear the rest!!
