Late last year I was traveling through a neighboring town, downtown daylight hours. A propane fill tanker truck let a SUV out of a gas station parking lot, the SUV proceeded to turn into oncoming traffic and surprise! couldn't see around that many tons tanker, and an oncoming big pickup and the SUV collided.
Since I was a witness, and knowing the law (unlike the propane truck driver :evil: who mysteriously didn't see anything, literally 2 feet from his left right headlight & mashed the gas peddle) I along w/others stopped to render assistance etc.

Shorten it up the Patrolmen i.e. several cruisers showed up, ambulance on the way etc. After I 1st notified I told the 1st Patrolman what I saw (including tanker license plate plackards etc :evil: ) where I was etc. ... To which he was totally unconcerned. , out came that same m&m notebook as my previous example (LoL). He never asked for ID or CHL card.
Acquisitions so far:

Slingshot
Butter knife
sharpened pencil
Newspaper roll
water balloon (diversionary)

Yeah, I'm that good

I have interacted multiple times with law enforcement over the years. This includes OSHP, Sherrif’s department and local police. No, I am not a felon. One was for a break-in at my office. One for a break-in at my home. One a robbery at a rest stop on I-71. Couple times for traffic accidents when I was hit and a couple times for driving while late. Each time I was armed and notified and I have NEVER been asked to produce my CHL. Most of the times the officer seemed exasperated as he had to delay what he was doing to listen to my spiel.

Had two Butler County probation officers stop by my house one day, following up on old addresses for someone they were looking for. I notified them that I was carrying.... they never asked to see my ID nor my CHL and even allowed me to go back in the house to get a number for them.

I would hope so. :roll: THEIR only other option was to have the door closed in their faces.
