In Dunwoody, as probably anywhere else, it could be a bad idea to taunt cops.
The city police warned against it in a Facebook post over the weekend after an alleged lawbreaker was said to be seen smoking pot at a stoplight next to a cruiser.
"It's also not an excellent idea to record yourself doing so on your cellphone to amuse the other occupants in your vehicle,” the post said. “Research has shown that marijuana usage impairs cognitive abilities. I would have to agree with this study since the driver also thought it was a good idea to speed away from the traffic stop after the officer acquired their tag number.”
With tag number in hand, the police promised: “We'll see you soon.”
