Case of The Mondays: Police Stop Jet Skier For No Real Reason


[This video isn’t a slam on those who faithfully and diligently serve to keep this country safe, but a glimpse of “the man” harassing jet skiers for no good reason – Ed.]

This video is hilarious in an annoying kind of way. A dude is having a good time on a lake swapping out his two ’96 800cc Sea-Doo XPs. He’s gleefully cruising, laughing, and jumping his self-made little 3-foot wake until he pulls up to a dock and gets an earful from a couple of police officers.

The officers proceed to let him know that his registration numbers are backwards and should have space between the letters and numbers, and also remind him that no one under 16 is allowed to ride personal watercraft. They perform what appears as a lackadaisical safety check, with one of the cops asking if the rider has a fire extinguisher on board, so he flips open a front storage bin to show the officer that, yes indeed his boat has one. The other officer comments on the rider’s life jacket, mentioning something about it being a Stearns and the guys discuss it for a moment. The operator says it’s a good jacket and he likes it.

The video rolls on and the conversation can no longer be heard because according to a note at the end, he states that he was tired of listening to law enforcement so he turned up the music so none of us had to hear their voices any longer. All in all, the operator of the two Sea-Doos had a great time on the lake just laughing, talking, and playing. Enjoy!
