Top this for a speeding ticket

Two California Highway Patrol Officers were conducting speeding

enforcement on I-15, just north of the Marine Corps Air Station at

Miramar . One of the officers was using a hand held radar device to

check speeding vehicles approaching the crest of a hill.

The officers were suddenly surprised when the radar gun began

reading 300 miles per hour. The officer attempted to reset the radar

gun, but it would not reset and then turned off.

Just then a deafening roar over the treetops revealed that the radar

had in fact locked on to a USMC F/A-18 Hornet which was engaged

in a low flying exercise near the location.

Back at the CHP Headquarters the Patrol Captain fired off a complaint

to the USMC Base Commander. The reply came back in true USMC


Thank you for your letter. We can now complete the file on this


You may be interested to know that the tactical computer in the Hornet

had detected the presence of, and subsequently locked on to, your

hostile radar equipment and automatically sent a jamming signal back to

it, which is why it shut down.

Furthermore, an Air-to-Ground missile aboard the fully armed aircraft

had also automatically locked on to your equipment location.

Fortunately, the Marine Pilot flying the Hornet recognized the situation

for what it was, quickly responded to the missile system alert status and

was able to override the automated defense system before the missile

was launched to destroy the hostile radar position.

The pilot also suggests you cover your mouths when cussing at them,

since the video systems on these jets are very high tech. Sergeant Johnson,

the officer holding the radar gun, should get his dentist to check his left

rear molar. It appears the filling is loose. Also, the snap is broken on his


Thank you for your concern. Semper Fi.
