Back in the eighties I was working for a petroleum company, moving around all over the place. Most of the time I had a young fella called Ross helping me out.

As a couple of single fellas we got our selves into a bit of trouble and strife, but had some good times.

I was called on to go and fix up a problem in Gundagai. The 33 staff took to us pretty well, so I organised a bit of a Christmas Bash down by the river.

Leading up to this, Ross had been a bit cheeky fella, and I asked one of the local sheilas if she knew the coppers well.

Met up with Joe (one of the best coppers around) and we decided to get him on outstanding warrants (fictional). Non of the other staff knew about this, apart from Michele.

The plan was for Joe to come along with the paddy wagon, arrest young Ross and thrown him in the clink. However just before that, I received a message to ring the boss and went to the office.

On arriving back at the river, I was confronted by a mob of hysterical women telling me about the arrest.

We all then went up to the cop shop and confronted Joe. Without a word of a lie this fella played his part to the end.

Anyway to cut a long story short, Ross told me later that Joe was pretending to talk on the phone when he was in the cell and he almost #### himself at the thought of doing time for something he couldn't figure out.

I guess the moral of this story is there are still some good bush coppers around with a sense of humour.

If any of the locals know where Joe, or Michele finished up, let me know.

He was a good young kid back then and still is. Came from a difficult back round, but needed to be sorted out a bit.

Now has a good job in the industry and I'm proud of him.

Sometimes I think a good boot up the #### by a copper does some good.

I have a very good friend who arranged a similar action by St Kilda Police, of all places - and only a handful of years ago.

My brother was coming in from O/S some years ago, and the BIL (Commonwealth copper) had him pulled for a strip search. Luckily they just put the wind up him, didn't go through with it.
BIL and his mates thought it was funny...bro couldn't see the funny side..he had just got off a long flight.

Makes me wonder what you'd pull on Hairy LOL

You've got to stop posting your stories on this forum. I've read enough of them.

Enough that is, to know that you should be writing a book. They are ripping little yarns and I open them up immediately because I know they are going to be a good read.

Each one could be stretched out with detail and become a chapter in "Aussie Kim's Encyclopedia of Bush Yarns".

Phew, what a relief....I was a bit hesitant to open up a thread entitled "tossing your mate in jail". I hear they get up to all sorts of antics in jail due to the lack of women:-)

Bloody good yarn though Kim....thanks for sharing.
