A buddy of mine sees some suspicious people walking through an apartment complex. As he drives and drives up to them they take off running. Okay, typically common behavior in that part of town. He jumps out of the car and goes chasing them down and catches one of them. As he's returning to his patrol car he hears a sickening impacting sound then a crashing sound. In his zeal to chase down what turned out to be kids skipping school, he rapidly put his gear in R thinking it was in P. His patrol car backed up, hit a pole supporting a car port and promptly brought it down. Fortunately there were no cars parked underneath. So, every time I see him I get to tease him about the difference between a P and an R on the gear shift.
