A lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a sheriff’s deputy

He thinks that he is smarter than the deputy, because he is a lawyer from New York. He is certain that he is better educated than any cop from Texas.

He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the deputy’s expense.

Deputy says, “License and registration, please.”

Lawyer says, “What for?”

Deputy says, “You didn’t come to a complete stop at the stop sign.”

Lawyer says, “I slowed down and no one was coming.”

Deputy says, “You have to come to a complete stop at a stop sign. That is the law. License and registration, please.”

Lawyer says, “If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I’ll give you my license and registration, and you can give me a ticket. If not, you let me go and don’t give me a ticket.”

Deputy says, “Sounds fair. Exit your vehicle, sir.”

At this point, the deputy takes out his nightstick and starts to beat the lawyer. He says, “So, do you want me to stop or just slow down?”
