  1. yeah today was very scary. i skipped the last period of the day with a friend and as we were walking along a rode we saw a cop. we turned around and started to walk away but he saw us and sped up. we ran and jumped into these woods. we kept running for like 5 min. we then found another road and started walking along it and we see the cop in the distance. we ran into a persons back yard and the cop drove by. we then started to walk away when the owner of the house we hid behind came out and started yelling at us. we walked away after he was done and walked up this hill to hide on top of and right when we sit down the cop pulles up and parks next to the hill. we jumped to the ground and stayed there for 30 min untill we saw him drive away. i have learned my lesson im not skipping anymore. this was way to close to getting caught.
  2. anyone else got any simmilar stories of escaping the cops?

    :eek: HOLY FUNK!!
    you get in trouble with the COPS for skipping school?!!?
    thats madness!

    what happens if you're caught?
  4. Back in high school, I refused to ever skip classes. I was a good boy, although my grades didn't seem to be all that great. :p

    Now that I'm in college...I still don't skip classes for the most part, aside from those 8:00 lectures that I occasionally sleep through.
  5. Here is a good skip story, but no cops were involved.

    Back in high school, I was in jazz band. So was the guitar player in my band. One day we had to play at an elementary school about 10 miles away. To keep the costs down I offered to haul almost all of the gear in my minivan, so the director gave me and my guitarist a pass to get off the school grounds early. The pass was for 1pm and of course we wrote in 11am.

    So we took these big magnets with the school bands name and put them on the van and loaded up. We left at 11 and the gaurds questioned us, but let us go because he knew we were in band. We went to the guitar players house watched a short porno, went and ate at Ponderosa and then went to see our bands manager. As we were leaving the managers place a bus pulls out in front of us. It was the school band and the director was staring us down! So we just followed them to the show and unloaded the gear as he watched us. He never said a word, we never said a word, it was a perfect caper!!

    If your gonna skip make sure you do it good!!

    I had a very similar experience to yours, except two of my friends and I were running from a couple of cop cars one night after they found us skateboarding in an outdoor public skatepark that was closed. Unfortunately, I had thrown my old '91 model Tony Hawk over the side of a chain link fence the police were approaching, so I had to run to the other side of the fence and leave it for them to take. One of my friends had to walk through a hundred yards of bushes to get to his car (which was parked near the skate park) and drive around to find us.

    Theres nothing like watchin a good porno and eating some good food when your supposed to be in school.
  8. Wow. Cops are way more laid back where I'm from. I don't think they even have anything to do with skipping school.

    They don't like public underage drinking much though.

    Judging from the way you spell road, I'd say you do not need to be skipping any classes.

    I goto a private boarding school so skipping is almost impossible.
    Every year near the end of hte year we have an event called Field day...for field day we goto a park and play frisbee, soccer, baseball, volleyball etc
    its a fun activity, and I don't know why I didn't want to do it so much then, but at anyrate I decided if I left school on thursday(thanks to my brother who drives) I could skip field day(friday) chill at home for the weekend(my mom was away) monday was a school holiday then I returned to school on tuesday :D
    so even though I got a major(3 majors means your eligible for expulsion) and about 8 hours of work crew(doing odd jobs around campus for punishment)
    I didn't do the work crew and then held out till the end of school(which was only 3 or 4 weeks away)
    thats about the only skipping I've done
    I got a 5 day weekend out of it though :D
  13. my cop story

    Setting: Halloween, 3 years ago

    Me and my pals were trick or treating and causing random vandalism (when you're in 8th grade its cool to be rebellious) and I spot a port-a-potty. Trying to be cool, I got a few of my friends to tip it over with me. Bad idea. The owners of it must have known this was gonna happen, and immediatly we hear a car start up and flare its lights. shiiite. we ran and ran across a hugeeee field where now there were cops in on the chase as well. We instinctively jumped several fences and made across several streets in little time (thank you suburbs). We eventually made it into the backyard of our little ringleader, and luckily his parents were home and we stuck it out for the rest of the night.

    id never do it again, but the thrill of jumping fences and running from cops was pretty exilerating(sp)
