A lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a sheriffs deputy.
He thinks that he is smarter than the deputy because he is a lawyer
from New York and is certain that he has a better education then any
cop from Houston,TX .
He decides to have some fun at the deputys expense.
The deputy says, License and registration, please.
"What for?" says the lawyer...
The deputy says, "You didnt come to a complete stop at the stop sign."
Then the lawyer says, "I slowed down and no one was coming."
"You still didnt come to a complete stop, Says the deputy. License and registration, please."
The lawyer says, "Whats the difference?"
"The difference is you have to come to complete stop, thats the law. License and registration, please!" the Deputy repeats..
Lawyer says, "If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, Ill give you my license and registration; and you give me the ticket... If not, you let me go and dont give me the ticket."
"That sounds fair. Please exit your vehicle, sir," the deputy says.
At this point, the deputy takes out his nightstick and starts beating the shit out of the lawyer and says, "Do you want me to stop, or just slow down?"
