Niles Gammons Arrested Twice In Ohio At Same Time Thanks To Daylight Savings
An Ohio man found himself in a bit of double trouble last Sunday when
-- thanks to daylight savings -- authorities busted him twice in one
day, at the exact same time.
22, had the first of his two police encounters at 1:08 a.m., when an
officer in Urbana caught him allegedly driving down a one-way street in
the wrong direction. Sergeant Dave Reese approached Gammons and claimed
he had glazed eyes and smelled of alcohol, according to an arrest report
obtained by the Smoking Gun.
Reese said that Gammon's garbled speech suggested he was testing out an urban legend to pass a sobriety test.
“I then advised Niles that pennies in the mouth were a myth and that it did not help in taking a breath test,” Reese noted in his report, according to WHIOTV.
Gammons got a court summons, because his blood alcohol level registered .116 and the officer said he found a small amount of marijuana.
But that was not the end.
After turning back the clock on Nov. 4 from 2:00 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. to
end daylight savings, Reese had the rare opportunity to do his best "Doc" Brown impression[/url], traveling back in time to make the same arrest all over again.
This time, Reese caught Gammons' in a municipal parking, where police
say the suspect threw his vehicle into reverse and nearly smashed a
police cruiser. The time was 1:08 a.m.
Gammons was again arrested
and charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated. This time he
was taken to the Urbana Police Division, the Urbana Daily Citizen

Vermont inmates slip a pig into state police car decals
Prison inmates who make decals for the Vermont State Police slipped a pig into the official seal, and up to 30 patrol cars wound up sporting the subliminal epithet, the Burlington Free Press tells us.
The police emblem features a cow, an evergreen tree and snowy mountains (along with three unidentifiable creatures). Back in 2008, an inmate artist at the Northwest State Correctional Facility went into the computer file and modified one of the cow's spots to resemble a pig, the common derogatory term for police, Vermont Corrections Commissioner Andy Pallito told the Free Press, like USA TODAY a Gannett paper. In 2009, the state police ordered 16-inch door decals.
Pallito said he believes 60 altered decals were made. Some new cruisers have two, while older cars may have just one if a door was replaced. New decals, costing $780, are expected Monday.
State officials learned of the prank Thursday. They blamed quality control at the Vermont Correctional Industries Print Shop in St. Alban. Prison authorities are trying to identify the inmate behind theRorschach test.
Compare the car decal with the state police shoulder patch, which "is a modification of the Seal of Vermont and the State's Coat of Arms originally designed by Ira Allen of the Green Mountain Boys' fame. The mountain peaks are Camel's Hump and Mount Mansfield as viewed from a point opposite Burlington," according to the VSP's site.
