Two state constables in Pennsylvania were tired of running into (literally) closed doors when following up on arrest warrants, so they took a page straight out of the textbook for Law Enforcement 101.â†µ
They exploited the suspects' love of the Pittsburgh Steelers.â†µ
Constables Hubie Coleman and Albert "Rocky" Younkin (don't those just sound like constable names?) swapped their regular car, which looked a little too much like a police cruiser, for a bright yellow van with a giant Steelers logo on the side. For the sake of painting a picture, let's just imagine it looked somewhere between this and this on the Awesome Spectrum™.â†µ
Here's Coleman on their ploy, a maneuver they cleverly dubbed the "Fayette County Constable End Around":â†µ
It's been working great. We sit outside and lay on the horn, and they come out. They're interested and curious.â†µ
Coleman and Youkin even play the Steelers fight song as they drive suspects to the district judge's office.â†µ
Well played, gentlemen. As far as I know, there's no warrant out for my arrest, but I'd like to think that if there was, I'd be able to appreciate getting duped like this.
