20 minutes before quitting time, I get sent to pick up some guy with a felony warrant who's supposedly hiding out at his house. On the way, I come across a 3-car crash that has a major intersection blocked, car parts scattered everywhere, and antifreeze spilled all over the place. It's 800 below 0 outside. I get the scene secured until another officer can take over, then head to the warrant call. Nobody home. What a surprise. On the way back to the station, I stop and back up another officer who's dealing with a group of drunks by himself. After the detox trip, I manage to get back to the station, finish the day's paperwork, and go home. Three hours late. Some days, the OT just isn't worth it.
