I heard this story the day before I wrote it...

and decided to stew it over for a bit before telling it. I wanted to get it right. It is 99% true(I added the part about the coffee), as it stands on its own without need for elaboration, and because my friend doesn't fear for his story being told to the world. If one cop doesn't scare him, why would all of them?

And to quickly address some of the comments I'm seeing, this is a quiet family-oriented neighborhood on the lower end of town. We're just this side of Mayberry RFD.

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.
