That picture is from the Twitter account of adult film actress Andy San Dimas, who was ejected from a Pirates game for wearing the fantasy horse head and dancing in the aisle like one of the animal-faced blow job ghosts from The Shining. The police were called to escort her from the stadium, and judging by this photo, we're guessing a one Sergeant Wayne C. Unicorn saw an opportunity he couldn't pass up.
Bizarrely, the Pittsburgh Police Department is treating the incident very seriously, seeking to punish the cop in question for conduct unbecoming an officer ... just as soon as they figure out who the hell he is.
Detective Buzzkill is on the case.
Blasting Darth Vader's Theme from a Squad Car
For the past several months, at least one cruise in New York City has been rolling through the boroughs blasting "The Imperial March" from Star Wars (aka the song that plays every time Darth Vader enters a room). To the average citizen, this gesture probably comes off as cheeky or mildly confusing. But to a homeless person on the fringe of pharmacological hallucination? A Crown Vic roaring down the street in the middle of the night blaring the Galactic Empire's theme song is basically a fire-breathing mechanical dinosaur.
"Yeah ... I'm gonna need to see a badge number."
It all started back in March when a man walking his dog in Midtown heard the iconic film score drifting slowly up the street and was surprised to see that it was coming from a police cruiser tooling on by with its emergency lights on. Then earlier this month, a Brooklyn resident spotted the Imperial Street Cruiser as it trumpeted through Prospect Park, driven by a pair of cops who were "laughing like stoned high-school kids." (To be fair, this is exactly the kind of thing that a lot of us did as stoned high school kids.)
Representatives from the NYPD have assured people that they're looking into the matter, but efforts to locate the offending cruiser have proven difficult, presumably because every time they question the two officers on patrol in Prospect Park, they feel the sudden and inexplicable urge to announce "These aren't the cops we're looking for" and tell them to move along.
