I had a good excuse to keep driving.

There’s a man speeding on the road and a police officer is chasing him for miles.

The man finally stops and the officer tells him, “When you see those lights and hear those sirens, you are supposed to stop!”

The man says, “Well, I had a good excuse to keep driving.”

The officer says, “I’ve heard every excuse in the book, but if it’s one I haven’t heard, I’ll let you go.”

The man says, “Well a few days ago, my wife ran off with one of your officers, and I was afraid you were trying to bring her back.”

So the officer let him go.
