"3:57 p.m.: At Raley’s, 2550 S. Tracy Blvd., a caller said a fire engine hit a parked car."

Maybe the car owner will get a "One Free Emergency Call" voucher from the city?

Time for Another Scene from Twacee:

Officer: "Sir, could you explain what you're doing?"

Perv (fumbling a little): "Looking for the bratwurst section, offisuh...uuhm..."

Officer: "By the looks of things, I'd say it's more like the mini-links."
