The Funniest Cop Stories Ever by Tom Philbin. It didn't get great reviews but it's not like you're wasting your money. It's free! If you don't like it, just quit reading it!
Cops are the people who see and hear it all. They work at one of the world's most dangerous jobs, but it's also one of the most entertaining. When their lives are at risk¿and even when they aren't¿cops encounter constant weirdness and stupidity in human behavior. The Funniest Cop Stories Ever collects the strangest, most amusing stories about stupid crooks, bungled crimes, and station-house banter. A true look at what life is like behind the badge, the tales in The Funniest Cop Stories Ever were collected by real-life ex-New York City policeman Scott Baker and coauthor Tom Philbin. Anecdotes are told by the real-life cops who experienced them and include:
A foot chase after a dwarf who karate-kicked his girlfriend's door and assaulted her while wearing a tuxedo and carrying a violin case.
A beggar who ended people's pay phone calls so he could demand their extra spare change.
A narcotics bust on a guy who claimed the crack cocaine¿and his pants¿didn't belong to him.
