    So this morning, I took an alternate route to get to my office. Noticed a Downey PD in a SUV that was going the other direction and then suddenly turned around and sped up to me and started following me. Great... tint ticket here I come. (Downey PD has given me like 6 tint tickets over the last 11 years :rolleyes:)

    He followed me for about 1 mile as I pulled into my office parking then kept going. I parked my car and as I was heading in, here was the SUV pulling up to me, rolling his window down.

    "Excuse me... did you exit that Tesla?"
    "Yes Officer, how can I help you?"
    "So how long have you had it? How do you like it?"

    Oh thank you, what a relief!!! He just wanted to know about the car!

    So we talked about a 15 minutes about the car and experiences. He said he purchased an AWD non-performance for his wife and they should be getting it sometime next month. He said he had been wanting to talk to someone as he has been seeing more and more but didn't want to follow his wife's advice to "just pull someone over and talk to them." lol

    Anyways, interesting thing that happened this morning, thought I'd share! :cool:

    Great story. But he probably shouldn't have been so obvious about flipping around and following you. That's obviously going to stress anybody out, being followed by a cop like that.

    I'm sure he was thinking hard about using his lights then decided against it. Since I went to park, he flipped around again to find me.
