Minnesota Deputy Handed a ‘Get Out of Jail Free Card’ from Suspect
I've always wanted to try this...
Having said that, I've also never had a warrant out for my arrest... But with my luck I would get stuck with an officer having a bad day, and the same thing would happen as this dude - a trip to jail.
A Dakota County deputy arrested a man wanted on a felony warrant over the weekend in Ravenna Township, which is located along the Minnesota/Wisconsin border, and just southeast of Hastings.
While the actual situation wasn't anything out of the ordinary, it's what the suspect pulled out and handed the officer once he was pulled over - His Monopoly card.
And not just any Monopoly card, the mother of them all: The Get Out of Jail Free card.
Unfortunately, like most games, it didn't quite work in real life.
"We appreciate the humor!" the sheriff's office posted on Facebook "A for effort!":
According to this story from KMSP, the 35-year-old suspect was arrested for a fifth-degree controlled substance warrant out of Ramsey County. Bail was set at $5,000.
