WBA Fighter Let Off With Warning

UK boxer David Haye recently posed for a selfie with a police officer to get out of a speeding ticket.

In April, Metropolitan officer Hitesh Patel stopped the former WBA Heavyweight Champion for speeding, but released "the Hayemaker" after the boxer agreed to a photograph. Officer Patel then Tweeted the picture to the fighter, with a caption that the two met while Mr. Haye was "'enjoying'" his car. The boxer responded by thanking Officer Patel for "not nicking" him.

Officer Patel did issue Mr. Haye a warning; the boxer's speed was unknown.

There is a significant chance that you are not a heavyweight boxing champion or a similar celebrity, and so an arresting officer probably does not want your picture. While these things won't necessarily prevent the officer from tearing a page out of the ticket book, or performing the electronic equivalent, there are some things to remember when you're pulled over in Tulare County:

Remember that police officers in Lamont and Shafter have a very dangerous job and are understandably on edge when approaching a potentially dangerous situation. If the roles were reversed, you would probably have the same attitude. As a driver, you don't have to make things easy, but you certainly don't want to make things worse.
