A traffic stop on September 26 at around 4 p.m., in the parking lot between Target and Ross on Sports Arena Boulevard, ended up sending a driver to jail for felony warrants.

As I drove by, there was only one police patrol car in sight. By the time I got out of my car to look into what was occurring, three more patrol cars had pulled into the lot.

The sergeant in charge told me what was happening: the driver of a black Lexus was pulled over for a traffic violation and had no driver's license or any other identification. However, police soon discovered several outstanding felony warrants against the driver.

The driver was handcuffed, arrested, and put into a patrol car. In the meantime, two officers donned black rubber gloves and did a search of the vehicle. There were no drugs or weapons found, according to the sergeant.

The driver had a female passenger with him; she was not arrested but was transported away by one of the patrol officers, possibly to her home.

The sergeant was unable to divulge what the felony warrants were for.

Gasp! Is nothing sacred? A Lexus driver is hauled off to the slammer after a routine traffic stop. Driving a Lexus, like driving a Caddy, Benz or a Bimmer, used to confer some respect and deference. Now we're treated like everyone else, I guess.

Maybe now, but when those nicknames first came along, a "Beemer" was a motorcycle (they do make them you know, and some very fine ones), and "Bimmer" was the car. So there!

Now my dear, you must be driving a Mazerati, Ferrari, or Lamborghini for any respect and sometimes impunity. However, if you insist on deference dahling, you must be in that Rolls. Not that lowly Bently, The Rolls Dahling, But of course!

It's Maserati (not "Mazerati"), and Bentley (not "Bently").
