There Is No Crime in Destrehan

So they make their own up as they go.

This just in:
An 18-year old Destrehan man was arrested Monday after authorities say he pretended to be a cop as a joke on a friend last month.

Taylor Gorman, 18, of ... Destrehan, was booked with impersonating a police officer. He was released on bond a short time later, St. Charles [Parish] Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Dwayne LaGrange said.

LaGrange said Gorman was driving a white Ford Crown Victoria when he pulled up next to another vehicle being driven by someone he knew. ... As a prank, Gorman allegedly flashed red and blue lights in his car.

 "They apparently didn't think it was funny and notified us," LaGrange said.
Can't anybody take a joke any more?

What exactly is the definition of impersonating a police officer anyway? Shouldn't it require more than what is detailed in this story?

I'm just sayin'.


  1. don't you just hate that? back when i was in journalism school, they drilled into us that a story should never raise a question it does not answer. this story raises a zillion.

    but i do love that header photo!

  2. LOL, I'm afraid raised questions are common with our soon-to-be-three-days-a-week local rag. When I first stumbled onto the T/P story about the Miami cannibal incident, I mistakenly thought I was reading something from The Onion.

  3. oh god, that miami cannibal incident. so many questions! but i think that's partly my brain trying to make sense of insanity. so horrifying that story. like zombie movies slipped the confines of celluloid. or something. 

  4. There are only questions in that Miami incident, no answers. Maybe that's where the human race went wrong countless millenia ago: thinking there were answers in hiding and waiting to be found.
