If you are the mayor of a city, you shouldn’t be driving with illegally tinted windows and a passenger with a open container of beer. If you do these things, do not make a big deal about the sheriff’s deputy calling you “dude”:
- Arvin Mayor Juan Olivares had just one request of a Kern County sheriff’s deputy during a traffic stop – “Don’t call me dude.”
Olivares planned to file an official complaint with the sheriff’s department, seeking to have the deputy fired for what he called disrespectful behavior.
“I asked him five times, ‘Please, officer, don’t call me dude.’ I’m not a dude. I’m 41 years old, I’m a businessman, I’m a Christian and I consider myself a gentleman,” Olivares said Monday.
Olivares is mayor of Arvin, a city of 20,000 in Kern County, about 20 miles south of Bakersfield.
The deputy stopped Olivares and Arvin City Councilwoman Carmen Acevedo in Bakersfield on Nov. 23. Olivares, who was driving, said he was ticketed for having illegally tinted windows on his vehicle, and Acevedo received a citation for having an open container of beer. [AP]
Dude, tell the councilwoman to hold off on the fucking brewsky in the car, and get over yourself.
