LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:
By Robert Donachie
A University of Central Arkansas (UCA) student whipped out some props and juggled for police officers to get out of a ticket.
After getting pulled over, UCA police conducted a brief investigation and collected the student’s license and proof of insurance. Once the investigation was complete, the officers asked the student to step out of the vehicle — which had a “Juggler” license plate — to show him he was pulled over for a broken tail light.
When the student stepped out of the vehicle, one police officer noticed something in the student’s pocket. The officer asked, “What is that in your pocket, if you don’t mind me asking?” The student looked a bit startled, but replied: “This is going to sound really weird, but I’m a magician. And it’s a magic prop.”
Intrigued, the officers asked the young man if he could perform a magic trick. “I’ll do some magic, if you insist,” the student said.
Before the young man performed a trick, one of the officers asked, “Are you a juggler?”
The student said he had one condition before he would perform for them: “You have to get a video of me juggling while I’m getting pulled over.”
