Purple-Coated Criminal?

I was driving out of my apartment complex in beautiful Winter Park last night, when what do I spy but two cop cars parked on the grass across the street. The car in front had its headlights on, and caught in the headlights was…someone. The light was bad and I pulled into traffic so quickly that I couldn’t tell whether the person was male or female. It stood awkwardly in the headlights, almost leaning away. The cops seemed to be talking to him/her. It seemed to be tall and thin, with black hair. It wore a long purple coat, and I got the impression that their legs were unclothed underneath. My first thought was “flasher!”

Then again, who would such a person flash at 10:30PM? No one walks down that stretch of road except homeless guys and Full Sail students.

30 seconds down the road, my curiosity got the better of me. I pulled a U-turn and sped back towards the cop cars. Alas, the person was gone! One of the cops was sitting in the front car, filling out a report or somesuch. I couldn’t see whether this purple-coated individual was in the backseat or not.

So now I’m wondering if there’s any way to find out what the heck went on. Do they still publish police blotters in The Orlando Sentinel?

    Purple Coat? It wasn’t that cold out last night for a coat, especially for a long one. I would probably bet they had a robbery or a botched robbery and they saw that guy. Figured with wearing a long coat, may be he was their guy and questioned him.

    Strange things do happen in Winter Park all the time. I came home the other day (by the way we live in the same area) and there were 5-6 drug dogs and tons of cop cars all over my neighborhood. Freaky when you see that and of course no one will tell you what’s going on.
