The phone call to the Sacramento Police Department was from an irate husband. He was complaining about his nagging wife and he wanted police to "take care of her." Officer Kevin Mulderrig, noticing bad reception on the line, asked the man where he was calling from.

"Los Angeles," he answered.

"Sir, do you know this is the Sacramento Police Department?" Mulderrig asked. "Why don't you phone the Los Angeles Police Department with your spousal complaint?"

"I did that," the man responded. "They told me that there was nothing they could do about it, and if I didn't like it, I should phone Sacramento."

Los Angeles Police Officer Susan Quan heard a 21st century alibi when she pulled a driver over for an illegal maneuver. "My GPS [global positioning system] said I could turn here," the motorist complained.

This was in West L.A., of course.

Honest, officer: Some other creative excuses uttered by drivers, according to the Thin Blue Line, an LAPD publication:

• "I knew it was dangerous to make a U-turn from the curb, but I didn't know it was illegal."

• "Yes, I saw the stop sign, but I'm late for work and besides you shouldn't be here anyway. You should be where the gangs are."

• "Was I really going 93 mph" in a 35-mph zone?

The last driver, acknowledging that speeders were a problem in the neighborhood, added: "I'm the one who called and complained about the problem!"
