ADDIS, LA (WAFB) -
Little Orphan Annie got a lucky break during a Halloween traffic stop in south Louisiana.
A police officer in the town of Addis stopped a driver for speeding along Louisiana Highway One. The woman driving the speeding vehicle got out dressed as Little Orphan Annie. The driver was on her way to a costume contest at work, according to Addis Police Chief Ricky Anderson.
“She was doing 62 in a 45 mile-an-hour zone,” said Chief Anderson. “My officer was laughing so hard he did not ticket her.”
Anderson says the officer sent Annie along her way with a promise from her that she’d slow down and he would not have to stop her again “tomorrow”.
