I'm no stranger to weird nights drinking at various Grand Rapids establishments and I hear a ton of messed up crap! This is one of those tales. It's another edition of From the Bar Stool. Killing the beers and recently heard a story about a Washington State Star Wars geek who got pulled over for doing 115mph down the highway. Was he wasted? Was he drunk? Was he stoned? Nope. Was he in love with Yoda from Star Wars? Yep!

Cop who pulled the guy over asked him why he was in such a hurry? Guy told the cop he had to get home as soon as he could because he was bidding on something on Ebay. So the cop asked what he was bidding on, but the guy said he would absolutely not tell the cop. He said if he told the cop, he thought the cop might try to out bid him.

This guy was clearly nuts. So the cop, being the top notch investigator he was, looked in the guy’s back seat and saw that it was full of Star Wars dolls! Hahaha! Cop said “come on man, you can tell me, you’re bidding on a Star Wars doll aren’t you?” Guy finally admitted he was in fact bidding on a Star Wars doll, actually a Yoda doll, and he’d wanted one his whole life, and finally the one he wanted was up for auction.

Cop just laughed it off, wrote the dork a ticket and let him be on his way. Going 115mph to get home and bid on a Star Wars Doll? What a geek!
