U. Wisconsin-Oshkosh Student Pulled Over for Car Covered In Christmas Lights

U. Wisconsin-Oshkosh Student Pulled Over for Car Covered In Christmas Lights

“I love your lights, but I’m pulling you over because of the lights”

At least the police officer who pulled him over had a sense of humor about it.

NBC 26 reports:

Oshkosh college student gets pulled over for car covered in Christmas lights

As it turns out, you can get in trouble for spreading a little too much holiday cheer.

Tyler Kamholz, a college student at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, saw a YouTube video about five years ago of someone covering their car in Christmas string lights.

“This year I just was like, ‘You know, what let’s just do it, I’ll put it on this year we’ll see what happens,’” Kamholz.

Unfortunately, he got pulled over by a state police officer because it’s not legal to drive on roads like that. The trooper was very nice about it, he said.

“‘I love your lights, but I’m pulling you over because of the lights,'” said Kamholz, quoting the trooper. ‘”They’re just a distraction.”

Larry Kamholz, Tyler’s dad and a retired police officer himself, was not thrilled about it.

“When tyler came to me and said he wanted to put Christmas lights on his car, obviously I cringed,” he said. “We had a long discussion about the laws that he would be violating if he did that on the streets. Most teenagers when they have something in their head that they want to do… Well, he went ahead and did it.”

If he’d gone all amber up front and red in the back he’d be legal.

Meanwhile, a Blue ISIS pig in Ohio murdered an unarmed man on camera and for some reason hasn’t been arrested like I would have been on the spot.

    I’m guessing you mean … this? “A man who pledged allegiance to the ISIS terror group was shot by an Arizona police officer in January after the terrorist-wannabe charged the cop with a knife, newly released bodycam footage shows.

    Maricopa County Sheriff’s Sgt. Brandon Wells responded to the scene after Ismail Hamed called dispatchers, committed to the ever-shrinking militant network and asked for a police officer to be sent so he could “deal with them,” police said. Hamed also reportedly told dispatchers he wanted to talk to police about the suffering of Palestinians and issues regarding the Middle East.


    “My name is Ismail Hamed,” he told 911 operators, according to The Arizona Republic. “I live in Fountain Hills, and I’m owing my allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. I just want a cop to come real quick and I want to deal with them.”

    Footage showed Wells talking with Hamed, who initially had his hands in his pockets. Moments later, Hamed appeared to throw rocks at Wells before brandishing a knife. Wells warned Hamed he would shoot him if he kept coming closer with the knife – and he did.

    Hamed was charged with terrorism after authorities accused him of attempting to carry out a “lone wolf” attack. He “intentionally or knowingly, did provide advice, assistance, direction or management” to ISIS, the Arizona Republic reported, citing a complaint filed with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office.”

      Ohio, not Arizona, and apparently the murderer is still alive and at large, so obviously not the incident you cite. I have no idea what incident he is talking about, though, so I have no idea whether his claim that this person is being given special treatment is true.
