(funky music) Marisol Notel. Marisol, you’re charged with a red light on North Main and Branch. We’re gonna look at it, okay? Okay. There’s your vehicle, there’s your, wow. (chuckles) You were in a hurry. I was. Is there anything you want to tell me about this? Well my mom was in a hospital so I was going to the hospital that’s off North Main Street. What’s the name of it? M-m-mo, ugh, memorial I believe it is.
No, it’s Miriam. Miriam, sorry. Yeah, how’s your mom–
That’s where I was going ’cause my mom fell down the stairs and she had a big bump on her head so they took her to the hospital Yeah, you–
and I was going to meet her there. She was there already. Yeah, the ambulance had took her there. They were treating her. Yes.
Yeah, you’re not a doctor, you weren’t going there to treat her–
No, I was just (laughs). So you, (laughs) they didn’t say, oh we can’t move her until Marisol gets here. Oh, sorry. No I was just worried about her that’s why I was speedin’ like that. Inspector Quinn did you see this? Sorry. Uh, no your honor. I heard about the chase though. Oh, I think what happened was her mother fell down the stairs and her mother was at the Miriam Hospital, right? And she was rushing to the Miriam Hospital, right? And she went right through the light, did you see it? Oo. Yeah, she went right through the light. Now, even though her mother was at the hospital already, they called her and told her your mother’s got the bump on her head and she said, “Don’t touch her “’cause we have a family recipe to cure that.” So she went into the refrigerator and got a nice big thick steak, right? Butter.
And she was rushing to the hospital and the steak was still cold. They put the steak on the big bump and that way the swelling was gonna go down, right? Yeah, with a little bit of butter. That’s what happens, that’s what happened. You know who came up with that remedy, huh? President Truman. President Truman, when he was President, his daughter gave a recital at The White House and one of the reporters for The Washington Post, a fellow named Paul Hume, wrote a terrible, terrible, terrible review of his daughter playing the piano and singing. And Truman was so upset with the reporter that he wrote him a note and he said I hope we meet someday and when we do you had better have a beef steak in your pocket to treat a black eye. So, Truman now taught us all that you can have the swelling go down with a steak and she knew that and she was rushing to the hospital. (faint laughter) And he also taught us that you can’t sneak out of The White House without secret service to drop that in the mailbox. (laughing) Alright, did you get the steak there on time? No.
No, okay. I’m not making light of this. I’m trying to think of what would most of us do in those situations. Your mother’s at the hospital, you don’t know, she fell, does she have a concussion there, she’s got a bump–
Yeah, I didn’t know. Is she gonna go into a coma? You want to get there quickly and so forth. So, I’m gonna dismiss it and charge you $35 court cost. Thank you so much. Okay, your mom’s doing pretty good? Yeah, she’s doin’ good. Okay, keep those steaks in the freezer. I will. Okay, good luck. Why don’t you cook her one for dinner tonight? (laughs) Samuel DeLeon. This matter was pre-tried with the City Solicitor. You issued the original citation, is that right? That would be the parking ticket that he was issued awhile ago. We’re dismissing the red light ticket. This gentleman has a story behind the reason he went through the red light. So we discussed that. Do you want me to tell it or you want. No, I’ll have him tell it. Okay. Why did you go through the red light? I was being chased. You were being chased by the police officer? No, I was being chased by a blue Camry. By who? A blue Camry. Oh, a blue Camry? Did you know who was in the blue Camry? Not at all. You had no idea? No. For how long a period of time were you being chased? From off the highway. From off 95? Yeah, off of exit 19. Mhm. He cut from the fast lane, all the way to exit 19. Like, he cut all traffic, got behind the light, almost hit me at the first light when you first get off the highway, chased me to the next one. He was following me, he broke just because he seen the flash and then after that he takes off after me again to the next stop sign where he almost hit the car after I make the left. Okay, we have a video of it, let’s take a look at it. There’s your car. Then he stops ’cause he sees the flash and he goes right and as you see, at the end, he’s about to take off again after me. Yeah and then if you see, he’s about to take off again, he follows me to the next stop sign and after I make the left he almost hits a car tryna follow me some more. You were satisfied with the explanation? Yes, your honor. On the recommendation of the City Solicitor and Patrolman Kessler, I will accept their recommendation that the red light be dismissed. It will cost you $30 for the parking ticket. You got a very compassionate disposition from the city’s attorney and from Officer Kessler. I think, Officer Kessler, that there’s a little bit more to the story than we know. Yes, your honor. The court will accept the recommendation of the City Solicitor and the officer. It’s gonna cost you $30. Thank you officer for coming in.
