I got pulled over by a Pinellas County (Florida) sheriff last month for flipping him the bird... but it was essentially an accident. He had been tailgating me for about a mile, and a couple lane changes, and had been so close on my bumper that I couldn't see that he was a cop in my rear-view. I was starting to get really pissed off that someone was tailgating me so hard, so finally after tapping my brake lights a couple times to no avail, I decided to extend my middle finger back at the tailgater... within seconds, his lights were on and he was pulling me over. He got out with his hand on his gun screaming and yelling at me. "You better watch who you're flipping off boy", I said, "I'm sorry, I thought you were following at an unsafe distance, I didn't realize you were a cop". He muttered something under his breath and stomped back to his car and sped off. I guess he knew there was nothing he could do legally, but wanted to give me a scare anyway.
