While walking my rather large rot-lab mix dog around 10PM in a neighborhood park, a County Sherrifs helicopter began circling the park with spotlight on full blast. They were searching the perimeter for someone (I still have no idea who,)while I was in the middle of the park's field.
This went on for about ten minutes when I decided I had had enough. I mooned the helicopter for about a minute...bare-assed pointed to the heavens. Now the spot light never focused on my butt so I kept on walking. They didn't get the message so I did it again. Again no response.
As I approached the line of trees surrounding the park, all of a sudden..BOOM!!...the searchlight began looking for me.
Ah..it's like a real life Nintendo game! I went from tree to tree dodging the searchlight each time the helicopter circled, I moved.
What a rush!...tree to tree, back to the same tree...after about three minutes they lost me!
As I ran across the street I raised my arms in my best Rocky pose (with my dog), about 4 patrol cars and a Park Ranger vehicle spotted me and confronted me.
I was arrested (for what charge was never explained to me) and thrown to the ground sat on by the fat out of shape park ranger, handcuffed and thrown in the back of the Ranger's Jeep.
I was then driven to booking at the County jail downtown.
About two blocks from the jail I feigned a heart attack...I held my breath for a few minutes pretended to black out and fell out of the Jeep on to the pavement.
The park Rangers freaked...called the EMT's and I was put in an ambulance and brought to Memorial Hospital. Given tests and released two hours later with all charges dropped. I went home that night bruised sore but happy...I beat the helicopter!!
Thanks for Listening to my story

Sacramento Monarch's forward Rebekkah Brunson was arrested early thursday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence. Monarch's General Manager John Whisenant expressed "deep disappointment" about Brunson's "poor personal judgement" in a statement from the team.
Brunson apologized to the team and the fans, saying "I am very embarrassed and ashamed, and I am well aware of the seriousness of the situation."
A California Highway Patrol officer stopped Brunson while driving in downtown Sacramento about 2 a.m. She had a blood alcohol level above the legal limit of .08 percent. Brunson, who has been with the Monarchs for four seasons, also said, "It's not representative of how I live my life, and I recognize what a huge mistake this is, I am deeply sorry."
2007-March 07-Former Astronaut Lisa Nowak was fired today by NASA as a result of her attempted kidnapping charges.
MIAMI - 2007 Feb.07- A U.S. astronaut out on bail! Charged with attempted murder!
NASA mission specialist arrested for allegedly attacking and trying to kidnap her love rival
in the parking lot of Orlando International Airport early Monday!
Astronaut, Lisa Nowak was initially granted $15,000 bail early Tuesday on charges of attempted kidnapping and battery,
but before she could be released Orlando police decided to add an additional charge of attempted first degree murder.
Nowak's lawyer, Donald Lykkebak, argued that the police officers' facts are "imaginary" and "can't be supported," said Lykkebak.
The judge for a second time on Tuesday, ordered Astronaut Nowak released on an additional $10,000 bond and a condition.
She must wear a global positioning satellite device, (GPS).
Mission specialist Lisa Nowak, 43, trained for two years as an astronaut at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, from 1996.
She worked in Mission Control as prime communicator with orbiting crews and flew on the shuttle Discovery's July 2006 mission to the International Space Station.
During that time, Nowak (a married mother of three) was "involved in a relationship" with a male astronaut Comdr. Bill Oefelein
who served as pilot on the December, 2006 space shuttle mission.
Nowak says that she and astronaut Oefelein had "more than a working relationship but less than a romantic relationship,".
Navy Cmdr. Bill Oefelein served as pilot on the December, 2006 shuttle mission.
When Nowak was arrested on Monday, she told police she only wanted to "talk to the woman" she is accused of attacking,
Air Force Capt. Colleen Shipman, 30, also a "friend" of Cmdr. Oefelein. Nowak, had just doused Shipman with pepper spray
in the parking lot of Orlando International Airport, and according to police, intended to kidnap Capt. Shipman and murder her.
As a result of these charges, NASA has grounded Astronaut Lisa Nowak and relieved her of active duty for at least 30 days.
