So, uhm yeah,
I'm a pretty new police officer (1 year of "service")
So i might be in some deep water for a mistake i made
So, a ambulance who i guess does regular check ups on people was i guess, well, checking up on someone. The ambulance didn't have any lights nor sirens on (probably a red cross ambulance, not sure).
So i was behind the ambulance in my pretty Dodge Charger and the ambulance was at a stop sign making a left turn, the ambulance cuts off a oncoming Audi A8. So i well, hard to say, but i pulled over a ambulance, first time for me, i've been to muggings, bar fights, bomb threats, never pulled over a ambulance before...So i pulled over the ambulance for reckless driving and gave the driver a citation, also a breathalyzer test. A little worried to go back to the police department and say anything about it soooo, i'm asking the state of North Carolina, and not the city of Winstom-Salem on this one.
Kinda had to deal with alot of stuff to be one step away from being a "auxiliary" police officer.
Also: I believe the ambulance went around another corner and turned on his sirens. I think the paramedics got a call during the pull over.

I'm finding your post hard to believe. If you wrote a citation, the ambulance driver has the right to go to the court room to contest the charge and you have to justify in front of a judge.

Not sure if you live in a big city like Winston-Salem BUT
1. Traffic court isn't open at 12 AM on Sunday
2. Traffic court for Forsyth County exceeds a wait time of 1 month.
3. Maybe the paramedic didn't want to.
4. "Ambulance pulled over" YouTube is a thing.
5. I have the ambulance vehicle named "Ford F-350 commercial".

If you really are a law enforcement officer and your go-to source for advice on how to do your job is random (non-law enforcement) strangers on the internet, maybe you should get into a different line of work.

You're acting like i'm pretending to be Justin Beiber, whats really so special and rare about being a police officer? Ya run jump kick and the job is yours. I never lie and say my job is hard, I do 75% traffic stops, the rest is paper work, which i only do for about 20 minutes per week. Tell the guy in Ferguson, MO or the guy unarmed shot in Fayetteville to get a different line of work, or the guy shot 12 times unarmed in Charlotte to get a different line of work, not a guy who does a traffic stop on a ambulance and asks the public opinion just to spark a conversation on there first thread. And you are also replying to a stranger, i'll get cyber police on you. Its not like there is a "law enforcement" section of the forum to spread by knowledge

Nothing. But we are talking about the story you posted here. It's made up nonsense.

Your superior will see the citation when you turn it in (should have already been turned in by now). But...just a clue for you....don't expect that ambulance driver to come running with any sense of urgency should you ever need him/her.

I would HATE to be the one that reads your reports on a consistent basis.

I'd love to rep you on this, BarLatGo, but I've already done it too many times in the thread about the guy who wants to get a puppy to protect his family but doesn't want to train it.
