    I'm glad the Army National Guard and local police have a sense of humour. Otherwise, you couldn't make this stuff up. Enjoy!

    I'm sure the Blackhawk crew were having a long and tiring day. I hope this little gesture brought a smile to their faces.

    Agreed, I find this quite humorous.

    Well, when you look at it on the whole, the police did call it right! He is clearly on the wrong side of the road, parked, and crossed the double line!

    It would have been more hilarious if the police had to call in a tow! :D

    As a joke, the Army NG should, because of sequestation, send the police a bill for the rescue... :eek:

    ;)

    They got off lightly if you ask me. They could easily have been done for speeding, or the vehicle not being road safe (no turn indicators or brake lights I'm guessing). :p
