(upbeat theme music) Danny Nieves. Good morning, Your Honor. Good morning, Danny. Let’s see, you are charged with speeding on Huntington Avenue. You must have really been in a hurry. I was really rushing, got out of work, had to sit there and go pick up my son at my mom’s house. So you were going to pick up your son? Yeah. Yeah you were really in the… (clears throat) The police officer that stopped you, tell me the interaction between you and the police officer. I’m interested for a reason. So the police officer pulled you over, right? I was coming down Huntington, you know it’s a hill so even as you’re hitting the brakes you still pick up speed. As I was going down the hill, he was posted on this side, seeing me as I was speeding. Yeah, he pulled you over, right? He pulls me over. He followed you? Yeah, he came around and followed me. He put the lights on? I pulled right over, once I seen the lights I knew it was for me ’cause I knew I was most likely speeding. You pulled over right? Yep, he pulled me right over. When he came to the car, what did he say to you? He goes, “You know why I pulled you over?” I was like, “Yeah.” He goes, “What’s the reason?” “I was speeding.” He goes, “All right.” So, he went to go check my driving record, he was like, “You was going ten miles over the speed limit so I have to give you the ticket.” Yeah. This police officer wasn’t your cousin, you wasn’t related to him or anything, no? No, no. Inspector Quinn. Yes sir. I thought he was going to say, “Judge, I want to commend the Providence Police Department. This police officer was so kind and understanding and generous to me, and I’m very appreciative.” I thought that’s what he was going to say. He was doing 57 miles an hour and the police officer cited him for doing 35. So I have a feeling that the conversation was a little more intense than what he’s telling me. Oh no, definitely not. (chuckling) I think the officer probably just asked him and he pulled over and stated “Yeah you caught me, I was speeding.” Yeah, I was more than nice with the officer, he told me himself. He was like, “You’ve been nice, you’re not giving me no type of anything so I’ll give you a break.” Exactly what you said, Judge. (chuckling) You left that part out. How come you left that part out? Sometimes you can’t say everything. You didn’t know I knew exactly how fast you were going, that’s why. Nope. What do you think, Inspector Quinn? I think he was honorable during the car stop, stated that he committed the infraction, the officer used his discretion to allow to send him here instead of the tribunal. I think it speaks well of both you and the officer. The fact of the matter is the officer came to the car, you didn’t give him an attitude, you didn’t give him that shrug of the shoulders, you know with that chip on your shoulder. I knew I was wrong. At the end of the day, when you’re wrong you gotta accept your faults, that’s it. Well, you had to be very contrite, and the police officer said I’m going to give this kid a break. That’s what happened. I just was curious if whether or not you were going to acknowledge that, but you did. All right. Anyway, anything you want to say to that police officer? Honestly, I want to tell him thank you. Mmm-hmm. (chuckling) Inspector Quinn, he doesn’t waste many words. No. You know, he’s tough. When I was questioning him upstairs regarding a different crime, he wouldn’t say anything. (laughter) I’m only kidding, I’m only kidding. All right, pursuant of the statute, the matter is dismissed under good driving record. Thank you. You’re going to pay court costs. That’s fine. Good work. There is not doubt about it, Danny got a break from the officer because he was honest and respectful. And the officer clearly appreciated his good attitude. Look, we police officers understand that getting pulled over is a major bummer. We really do. But here’s something you probably didn’t know. Traffic stops aren’t any fun for us either. They’re one of the most dangerous and unpredictable situations we face. So anything that you could do to make things less stressful for both of us will probably work out in your favor. Just stay calm; keep your hands on the steering wheel; don’t try to get your documents until you’re asked; be honest, polite, respectful, and you’ll probably get a break like Danny did.
