I was kicked out of a Michigan football game once. I've gotten a couple of speeding tickets. Those are my only brushes with the law.

Well I needed to get my being kicked out of the Michigan-Northwestern football game in 1999 out in the open. It could be used against me in a future campaign...being ejected for throwing a marshmallow at a friend. Potentially HUGE scandal if I had tried to cover it up...

I've never been caught.  I did spend a few days in college ducking a subpoena that might have been issued.

Twice.  Once for breaking into my high school right before my senior year, and once for public intoxication.

Dammit.  That's not funny.  Cheesy   LOL

Sure.  Of course.  They were all mostly for piddly sh__.  Nothing very exciting.  Some good stories, though.

Arrested, never.
Issued a "Platzverweis" - a police order to leave a certain location or face arrest: 4 times, including three times in 12 hours once. (And I blatantly disobeyed two of those.)

and it was for fleeing the scene of an accident. I was a dumb and very nervous 15 year old who just got my license.

I was only charged with a "failure to yield" traffic violation and fined $50.

I have been in jail one night in my life. I was 20, drunk and have a little dispute with a doorman. Of course I acted like an idiot, but hey.. it's only life! Good experience after all!

I love arrest stories.  I have never been arrested, though I have had a couple of close brushes, and of course I've had a few speeding tickets.

My closest brush involved the time I went drinking with a buddy of mine, and we got into a mock fight in the parking lot when we left the place.  Somebody must have thought we were serious and called the cops.  My friend left and I was pulling out of the place when a cop pulled in and signaled for me to pull over.  He asked me to wait while he investigated a call they had gotten.

A short time later, he let me go.  My real concern was not the fight, which was clearly not serious, but the possibility that I may have been over the legal BAC limit.  My driving record was not great to begin with at that time - I had just been to court for my second speeding ticket within a short space of time - and I didn't need more trouble.  Luckily, nothing happened.

That same friend got arrested once for driving a moped the wrong way up a one-way street and zig-zagging between cars.

I used to like engaging a little bit in drunken and disorderly conduct, and I liked to do things like knock over, bend, or otherwise damage signs.  Another thing I used to do is go out driving with a couple of friends late at night, and deliberately go the wrong way up one way street, running red lights and stop signs.  I could still do it now, under the right conditions.

NYM90 - Your football game story reminds me of something that happened to a couple of friends in high school.  They were caught at the heinous crime of throwing soda cans at a football game.  The following Monday, the dean made a whole announcement to the school about how such idiotic behavior would not be tolerated.  They were given a whole week of after-school detention, plus a Saturday detention.  It was pretty funny.

StatesRights - I want to hear your arrest stories.

Do traffic related incidents count too, because then it isn't once
